EBA is a member of the Select Division of Baseball Ontario (OBA - Select Division), which is the official governing body for Select baseball in the Province of Ontario.

EBA does not arrange for player tryouts or operate Select teams.  EBA organizes the loop teams participate within.  In addition to Select teams organized by Member Leagues, the EBA Select loop also includes Select teams from Toronto Playgrounds, York and Annette.  The EBA loop operates as House League Select for 9U, 11U and 13U and Dedicated Select for 15U and 18U.

Typically, each division's Championship team automatically qualifies for the House League Select or Dedicated Select (as appropriate) Provincial Championships for that division (typically Labour Day Weekend for 9U – 15U and the third or fourth weekend in August for 18U).
