The St. Louis Amateur Baseball Association (SLABA) was established in 1987 and began play in 1988. SLABA continues to provide high school players in the St. Louis metro area with an affordable, high-level summer baseball experience.
SLABA's founding principles of promoting sportsmanship, fellowship and the development of youth through baseball-related activities year-round continue to serve as the basis of the league today.
Hundreds of former SLABA players have gone on to play in every level of college and pro baseball. Currently, former SLABA players in Major League Baseball include Ross Detwiler, Peter Fairbanks, David Phelps, Max Scherzer and Luke Voit.
SLABA League games are for 15U, 16U and 17U/18U age levels. Our seasons usually begin after Memorial Day and run through mid-July. Our Post-Season Playoffs are usually the third week in July and our All-Star Games are at the end of July or early August.
