We welcome you to the SBG Sox Youth Program in Birmingham!

 

. We received your registration and are excited you are here and hope you will be joining the Nationally Recognized, National Champion SBG Sox Baseball Program. 

 

We completed our 15th season this summer and have had the privilege of watching many players come through our program and grow as a player. We understand that this is an important decision for your family, and we take the responsibility that you place in our organization seriously and with pride. 

 

What Next? 

We hope that you have read or know about the merger between P360 Performance Sports & CABA USA. P360 is the parent company of SBG Sox and has been around since 2001. Founded by former Ole Miss Rebel and Chicago White Sox infielder Chris Snopek, the company started in Jackson MS, and has grown from one facility to additional locations in Pearl, Hattiesburg, MS Gulf Coast, Auburn and Birmingham. Each location was added with professionals that share the SBG Sox Mission, are strong people with a great baseball background and love teaching the game. Kennon and Joe are definitely those people. Our Mission: To provide a platform for player, character and attitude development for young people to realize their full potential, whatever that may be. Each year over 1,800 players join us for our Sox teams, camps and leagues. The P360 Fall Wood Bat League just completed its 17th season and the P360 Machine Pitch League starts next week for its 3rd season. All programs will be headed to Birmingham over the next 12 months...and it starts with the SBG Sox Baseball Program. 

For the upcoming season, all CABA players are invited to return and play on an SBG Sox team. Depending on the number of players that return, teams will generally stay together with their teammates and coach. To commit to play with the SBG Sox, it requires a $100 Roster Deposit, letting us know that you are in as we build the teams.
