The St. Cloud Travel Baseball Association (SCTBA) began in 2006 (incorporated as a 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.
SCTBA is 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. SCTBA has experienced tremendous growth since 2006 when we fielded one 11U team.
The St. Cloud 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 state championships at many age levels. Our goal is to develop well-balanced teams with kids playing at the level best-suited for their ability.
The St. Cloud Travel Baseball Association would like to thank the Minnesota Twins Community Fund for its previous support.
The Blue Sox received a Coaching Grant for the 2014 season. It allowed us to help with the expenses of student-coaches.
SCTBA continues to pursue other grant possibilities from the Twins Community Fund and other sources.
The St. Cloud Blue Sox offer competitive travel baseball opportunities for players ages 9 to 15.
Since the program's inception, almost 700 players have appeared in uniform for the Blue Sox.
If you're interested in learning more about the organization, and to make sure you are notified as to our tryouts in the fall, contact a board member using the information under the "Board" link at the top of this page.
If you are a player from a neighboring community and wish to play Blue Sox Travel Baseball, you are eligible to play without waiver if your home community does not provide you a Gopher State opportunity (such as if you don't make their Gopher State travel team(s) or your home community does not have a team at your age level). However, in order to play Blue Sox Travel Baseball without waiver, you must at least try out for your home community's team. If you do not try out for your home community's Gopher State Travel team, you may not play Blue Sox Travel Baseball without a waiver from your home community.
