SBA preps for another season

March 26, 2014

Almost 45 years ago the city of Starkville saw it could no longer finance baseball in the community. In response, a group of dads got together and out of their desire to continue baseball for the city’s youth the Starkville Baseball Association was born.
Today, the SBA is run by a group of 12 volunteer board members along with Randy Carlisle, who serves as president.
“SBA is a 100 percent, non-profit, privately run system away from the Parks and Recreation program,” Carlisle said. “We rent the fields from Parks and Rec, but it is not a city-sponsored program. It is all done by volunteers and board members. It survives because those volunteers, coaches and parents want to have youth baseball.”
