If you have questions, we have answers.

Why can't I log in?

This is a brand new website for APBPA. The old site was not on the same platform and we couldn’t import users from the old to the new website. We are sorry for the inconvenience.

If you are a current member, and have paid dues for 2019, and would like to register with the website, click the “join” button in the main menu and use promo code APBPA2019. This will make it only $1 to register.

If you are a former member and would like to re-join us, or if you are a life member and would like to register with the website, please enter your member number during the signup process (click the “Join” button in the main menu).

If you would like to catch up on past dues, you can contact us at

Where's my membership card?

As of 2019, we have transitioned to digital membership cards. You can find yours here (you must be logged into the site). MEMBERSHIP CARD

Doing this has saved us nearly 40% of our annual budget. Now we can spend more of our resources on helping ballplayers.

If you would like to have a physical card, you can order one here. ORDER PHYSICAL MEMBERSHIP CARD

*Note: Buying a membership card does not equal membership. You must first be a member to buy a card. To join APBPA CLICK HERE

How do I access "member only" pages?

To access pages that are restrected to members — including your digital membership card, benefits, resources, and pages for editing your membership — look for the “My Account” button in the menu and hover over it (on PC) and click it (on your phone).

Where is my digital membership card?

It is located under the “My Account” menu tab.

I'm already a life member. How do I join the website?

Just click here and choose, “Current Life Member” from the membership list.

Who is eligible to become a member of the Association?

Anyone who has served as a player, manager, umpire, scout, trainer, “clubby”, scorekeeper, or front office personnel for any affiliated professional baseball club or independent league organization in the United States — basically, if you have ever been employed by a professional baseball team in the United States, you are eligible for membership.

We also offer “Honorary”memberships to anyone that would like to support the brotherhood of professional ballplayers. Honorary may take part in benefits (discounts with our partners) but not services (financial, counseling, or disaster recovery support) listed on the website.

How do I become a Life Member?

You become a Life Member by paying dues for 20 years.  No dues are paid after that, and you may upgrade to a metal Gold Membership Card for only $120, signifying your long association with the Game. We encourage our Life Members to contribute an annual donation to support our mission of ballplayers helping ballplayers.

How may I obtain assistance?

You can start your application online. (you must be an active member and you must be logged in to view the application page)


May I borrow from the Association?

The Association does not offer loans.

I never played in the Major Leagues. Am I still eligible for assistance?

All ballplayers who are up-to-date on their APBPA membership dues are eligible for assistance.  Honorary Members are not eligible for assistance.

If you need to catch up on your dues before applying for assistance, please contact us.

The Association does not distinguish between major leaguers,  minor leaguers, or independent ballplayers in this regard.

Does the Association provide a pension for minor league players?

The Association does not provide pensions for any of its members. Please contact your former professional team(s) for assistance for information regarding this.

I signed the Dues List with my team, but I never received my card.

Please call the office at (602) 873-4258.  We will research our files.

How can I help the Association fulfill its mission?

Full membership is only offered to those who played professional baseball (at any level). However, we offer “Honorary Memberships” and we also accept donations (both monetarily and service).
