THE BASEBALL PLAYERS ASSOCIATION, INC.
Established in 2000 by Hugh Cantrell in Lexington, Kentucky. The Baseball Players Association is a full service organization that offers a division of play and a level of competition that all baseball players can enjoy.
Today more than ever, conducting your business in a cost-effective manner is a crucial ingredient to success. If you are spending a significant amount of time and money in securing qualifying tournaments and post season tournaments, you are probably losing thousands of dollars each year.
The Baseball Players Association (BPA) is specifically designed to meet the special needs of each complex owner and the parks/recreation departments for today and in the future. That means under BPA's present structure your complex will never have to bid on a post season tournament. The BPA is not in the tee shirt novelty business - those rights belong to your complex and the tournament director. Around the country, park/complex owners and park/recreation directors search for new and better ways to satisfy their teams, managers and sponsors. Where there is a need, BPA is ready to respond with a system that guarantees more post season berths to the teams participating in BPA leagues and tournaments. This alone will make the teams, managers and sponsors more receptive to playing in your parks.
The BPA offers your complex and parks/recreation department the opportunity to send softball teams directly to the State, National Regional and World Series Tournaments through BPA sanctioned leagues and qualifying tournaments at no cost to you.
The BPA also offers your complex and parks/recreation department the opportunity to host State, National Regional and World Series Tournaments every year at not cost to you. NO BIDDING! The BPA is an organization with you, the parks & recreation director or private complex owner in mind.
