The "Edina Way" embodies who we are as players and coaches, both on and off the field. We strive to be great from being a good teammate to playing hard and sacrificing, so that others may benefit. Recently the Edina Baseball Association saw a need to help others...not in North America. The Dominican Republic has a strong tradition of producing world class baseball athletes and often they play with poor equipment and uniforms. "Over the years we have compiled gear like uniforms, ball caps and bats, and we wanted to put them to good use.' said Greg Brown, former EBA President. "So, it was natural to join forces with another great program like the Eden Prairie Baseball Association to collect and distribute slightly used equipment to the players of the Dominican Republic."
By the looks on the players' faces we accomplished our goal of being good stewards for baseball. Who knows...we may see some of these players called up to the Big League soon!
New for 2017, EBA uniforms will be custom ordered through General Sports EBA online store. All players participating in 10-15 White (house) or Senior Rec. will need to visit the site before April 10, 2017. Players will select jersey size, number, and hat at no cost (cost was included in registration fee). EBA jerseys are made by a new vendor this year so sizes will differ from last year. Please take the time to visit General Sports and try-on jersey samples to ensure a perfect fit for your player before completing your online store information. ALSO - General Sports Optional Baseball Apparel Store is currently open, see below. Note: Green League uniform orders have been processed.
