2024 Teams are now being formed!
Coaches are now busy contacting players that attended tryouts! If you do not get contacted by a coach by 10/1/2023, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. We are confident that we will have a team for all the players that attended tryouts!
To ensure your roster spot, a $100 deposit is due by 10/31/2023. The payment link can be found on your team's page. Schedules, tournaments, and rosters will be added when information is available. We are happy to report that the Blue Sox will have teams at 9U, 10U, 11U, 12U, 14U, and 16U.
If you did not attend tryouts but would still like to be on a Blue Sox Roster, use this link to fill out a form and someone will be in touch with you. Remaining roster spots are now filling on a first sign up basis.
The St. Cloud Travel Baseball Association (SCTBA) began in 2006 (incorporated as a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization in 2008) as an initiative to provide St. Cloud area youth an opportunity to challenge themselves to become better baseball players, better athletes, and better people by playing competitive baseball.
The Blue Sox are a competitive travel baseball program for kids who want to experience a higher level of competition, furthering their development while having fun in a disciplined environment. This is not a recreational (house) league. Our teams play surrounding communities in league play in addition to playing 3 weekend tournaments. The Blue Sox have experienced tremendous growth since 2006 when we fielded one 11U team.
The Blue Sox compete in the Gopher State Baseball League, providing St. Cloud area kids their most competitive and challenging baseball experience. Since 2006, our teams have qualified for and won tournaments and state championships at many age levels. Our goal is to get every kid who wants to play Blue Sox baseball on a team, playing at a level suited for them. From there our coaches will take over and work on development. You will find many former Blue Sox players on St. Cloud high school teams and beyond!
Interested in playing Blue Sox Baseball?
We offer competitive travel baseball teams for ages 9 to 16. Since the program's inception, almost 1,000 players have appeared in uniform for the Blue Sox.
If you're interested in learning more about the organization, contact a board member using the information under the "Contact" link at the top of this page.
Who's eligible to play Blue Sox baseball?
We play in the Gopher State Baseball League, which is a community based league. All players must live in the St. Cloud city limits or attend a St. Cloud school. 742 Public, Private, or Charter schools qualify. However, if your home community does not have a Gopher State team, you are eligible to play Blue Sox baseball. Additionally, if you are cut from another Gopher State community, you are eligible. Waivers are also available.
If this all sounds confusing, you're right, it can be. Feel free to reach out to a board member with any questions by clicking the "Contact" link at the top of the page.
