Baseball is alive and well in the Niagara Region. Beyond the youth baseball Associations, such as SCMBA, there are numerous baseball organizations allowing players to continue to play, or watch their favourite pastime.
The following are some of the local Baseball Organizations that SCMBA is loosely affiliated with.
The St.Catharines Senior Cobras play in the Niagara Senior Baseball Loop. They play their home games out of George Taylor Field in St.Catharines.
Players are typically between the ages of 23-35. Anyone interested in playing for the Cobras should contact Coach Frank Iker.
Admission is FREE for those who would like to come out and watch the Senior Cobras play!
The Niagara Metros play in the COBA Major League, which consists of teams from around the Golden Horseshoe. This is also a senior-aged team, consisting of players aged 22+, but plays at a higher level than the local NDBA League. The Metros also play their home games out of George Taylor Field in St.Catharines. Anyone interested in playing for the Metros should contact General Manager Justin Ayles.
Admission is FREE for those who would like to come out and watch the Metros play!
