Mission Statement

Our mission is to teach children the sport of baseball and softball, and to develop and perpetuate in them an interest and love for the game. In doing so, it is also our mission to provide the safeguards necessary for fair play, to develop the spirit of true sportsmanship, and instill a sense of community pride for the youth of Seven Hills. The Seven Hills Baseball Federation is a volunteer non-profit 501c(3) organization that has taken on the role of operating and facilitating the baseball/softball summer programs for the residents of the City of Seven Hills.

What is the Seven Hills Baseball Federation?

We are a volunteer non-profit 501(c)(3) organization that has taken on the role of operating and facilitating the baseball/softball summer programs for the residents of the City of Seven Hills. In cooperation with the City of Seven Hills, the SHBF Board members (elected by the members of the federation) direct the operation of the SHBF for the benefit of the children in our community so that they have a rewarding experience in their summer baseball/softball league. Parents become members of the federation when they register their children each spring.

Many of our leagues are umpired by high school and college aged young men and women from our community giving a summer work opportunity to many who are players or ex-players of the Federation. Training is done by certified umpires who also staff the older leagues.
