FBBSB's in-house baseball league runs from April to the end of June. Fees are based on age and  range between $65 and $140 for programs from  t-ball to Pony League.  Fees cover costs for uniforms, practices and games.

Tryouts for FBBSB traveling teams start in December. FBBSB has a competitive Firebird travel program. The 12 and under team makes a trip to Cooperstown every year.
