BENEFITS OF PLAYING BC BASEBALL AT PBSA

2018

The Peninsula Baseball and Softball Association has had the privilege of being affiliated with the Greater Victoria Baseball Association (GVBA) playing baseball under the BC Baseball rules of play since 2006.  Baseball Canada provides the framework for all of our programming.  BC Baseball divisions up until 18U are all two year age groups based on calendar year of birth so you can play with all your classmates each year.  The following is intended to outline the ball playing opportunities offered at PBSA and being played out of Rotary Park - Field of Dreams adjacent the Victoria Airport.
