Cardinals Travel Baseball and HAST Information


Registration for AHYAA’s Full-Time Travel program is now open through 7/25.

For those of you who are new to Cardinals Baseball, we have two levels of travel baseball: AHYAA Full-Time Cardinals and House All-Star (HAST) part-time travel.

Full-time Cardinals Travel baseball:

Open to players 9-14 years old; these teams play in the Mid-Suburban Baseball League and 3 and 6 tournaments a year. Indoor training usually starts in late December/early January. The season runs until early July with maybe a tournament in mid-July. These players are not eligible to play in the AHYAA House League. Cost is usually around $900-$1,200, depending on the team’s need for new uniforms.


House All-Star Part-Time Travel Baseball (HAST):

 A modified, reduced version of Travel Baseball that works in conjunction with our House League. Players on the HAST teams must be on a AHYAA House league team. The HAST teams play in the NAISL or N60 league, which does not keep track of standings. In addition, they have played in 3 tournaments. This is a great opportunity for those who want to play more games but cannot commit to Full-Time Travel. Cost for this league is around $450 plus the registration fee for the House Baseball Program.

Anyone interested in the Full-Time Travel Program must register on the AHYAA website by the 25th of July. HAST registration will open at a  later date.

If you are a current HAST and/or House baseball player and would like to tryout for FT travel please use this link:  2021 FT Cardinal Baseball Tryouts   Please note if you tryout and do not make a FT travel team, you are still eligible for HAST baseball.


In the near future we will be sending out a similar email for HAST registration for the 2021 season.  All players currently on a HAST Cardinals team, are guaranteed a spot on a HAST 2021 team.  This includes those that tryout out for FT Travel and do not make a team, as well as HAST players that do not tryout for a FT team and want to play HAST again in 2021.


Any player who is not currently on a Full-Time Travel team and is interested in Full-Time Travel, must register by the deadline and attend an evaluation on either July 21st or July 28th.

Evaluation Dates at Heritage Park

7/21 @ 5:30

7/28 @ 11:00 am.


HAST registration will open in late August/early September with evaluations to follow.


If there is enough demand/ability, AHYAA will consider opening new teams on both the Full-Time Travel and HAST levels.


If you have any questions, please contact me at


Thank you, and we look forward to another successful season of Cardinals Baseball.

Based on the current uncertainty surrounding the safety of live events, the Javier Báez Baseball ProCamp is postponed until it is safe and practical to execute live and in person. Our first option is to execute the camp later this summer. Our secondary option is to host camp during the season this fall. If neither option is feasible, your registration will roll over to 2021.
