Welcome to the Bloomington-Normal Baseball Association

BNBA In-Town Baseball Program

Registration is NOW Open!

No Fundraisers and No Concession stand duties

More fun and More affordable than other programs!

BNBA has provided organized affordable baseball to Bloomington-Normal for over 50 years. Formerly known as American Junior Baseball and American Legion Baseball, the BNBA provides both recreational (In-Town) and competitive (Travel) teams for players ages 5 through 18 and typically accommodates 1,000 players each season. Registration fees for In-Town players range from $90 to $170 based on the league. Registration fees provide uniforms, equipment, umpires, program operations and supplemental insurance for players. The In-Town program provides for the largest number of players and includes six leagues as follow:

  • T-Ball / Ages 5-6
  • Rookie League / Ages 7-8
  • American League / Ages 9-10
  • National League / Ages 11-12
  • Major League / Ages 13-14
  • Senior League (Recreational High School Division) / Ages 15-17
The season begins in late May and concludes in late July. Teams are scheduled 2-3 games per week including a season end tournament for players in the National and Major leagues.  Rainouts are attempted to be rescheduled as field availability allows.  Weekday games begin at 5:30 or 7:45 pm  and Saturday game times vary from 11 am to 3 pm.  The In-Town program does not play Sunday games.  The BNBA relies on volunteer coaches who are asked to promote the fundamentals of the game, equitable playing time and sportsmanship.  The goal in this division is to provide a positive baseball experience for players and fans.

 Please be sure to friend or like the BNBA Facebook Page. Rainout information and other announcements are posted there also.
