NBBA Board and Staff

Newport Beach Baseball (NBBA) strives to provide a fun and healthy environment in which the youth of our community can play baseball each spring and fall. We endeavor to provide quality instruction in the development of baseball skills and instill the qualities of sportsmanship, teamwork, honesty, loyalty, integrity, competitiveness, fair play, and community pride. 

New Board members

Each year, new members are needed to replace the retiring Board Members (who take years of experience with them). We are looking for community members passionate about youth baseball who are eager to volunteer their time and expertise for NBBA and who are interested in making decisions that further our mission, including on issues related to uniforms, team parent coordination, fundraising, sponsorship, and strategic initiatives.

Interested in Becoming a Board Member?

A great way to decide if joining our Board is for you is to attend our Board meetings so you can observe how NBBA operates. We encourage you to speak with an existing Board Member as well. 

If you are interested in helping run NBBA as a new Board Member, please reach out to us at
