NYO alums Kyle Farmer and Chesny Young both kicked off their 2016 seasons in grand style.  Kyle, a Marist and UGA grad in the LA Dodgers organization, had a single and threw a runner out while batting second and playing catcher for the AA Tulsa Drillers. Chesny, a Marist and Mercer grad in the Chicago Cubs organization, homered on the first pitch he saw and went on to collect another single, two walks, a stolen base and score another run while batting second and playing 2B for the AA Tennessee Smokies.  Looks like the off season work Chesny put in around our park this winter sure paid off.   AA baseball is a top notch level where many teams' top prospects play before moving up to AAA or direct to the Majors.

Both Kyle and Chesny are NYO lifers from tee ball through Pony and their famlies remain very close to the program, in particular Ken Young, our webmaster and Pony league director. It's great to see all the work they put when the boys were young still paying off.  We'll be keeping a watch on both young men as they progress through the season and sounds like there may be a few NYO road trippers out there catching some Southern League action where Chesny plays.

January 13, 2016 - We've shaken off our post-holiday lethargy and are ready for some baseball. Attached to this article is a memo with lots info on the upcoming season and details on tryout/evaluation weekend (click on the article heading and scroll down to see all the attachments to this article). We are also attaching the detailed player evaluation and tryout schedule for January 30-31 for age groups 6-12 as well as the Pony tryout schedule for January 30-31 (together with a separate informational memo for the Pony league). If you will either be out of town or absolutely cannot come during your assigned time, see the memo for details on what to do. But please do everything you can do be there during your assigned time so we can keep things orderly that weekend as we have over 1,400 kids playing with us this spring.

We're also attaching a separate document with our list of the Top 10 questions we get about tryouts - hope we answer most of your questions. Plenty of info there on finding your tryout number, figuring out when and where to go, what to bring, what happens if you have a direct conflict, etc, so please refer to this before sending in any emails.

Finally, we are re-attaching the 2016 calendar but read the memo for some important info as well on starting dates for games and how we will schedule around the breaks.

Open Space/Wait List information: We have a few open spaces as of 1/13/16 in most of our leagues   Final spaces will fill up so register ASAP if you are interested (you will initially be waitlisted but we can let you in as space allows). Some age groups have short wait lists but we can admit you as players drop out over the next few weeks.   As spaces open up, they will go to players on our wait list, so please register online if you are interested. We will provide a full refund if we cannot clear you from the wait list or if you decide to withdraw from the wait list prior to your child being admitted off the wait list.

We will update right there should there be any changes. Tryouts will go on unless we have extreme weather conditions and we'll be sending out updates as we get closer to that weekend. See you at the end of the month! Thanks, NYO Baseball

JULY 15 UPDATE - WE WIL BEGIN ON OUR WAIT LIST ON THU JULY 16.  RIGHT NOW WE HAVE LIMITED OPEN SPACE IN ALL LEAGUES AND WE WILL CLEAR KIDS OFF THE WAIT LIST IMMEDIATELY AS SPACE ALLOWS. ONCE WE HIT OUR CAP IN AN AGE GROUP, WE WILL KEEP OUR WAIT LIST GOING AND LET KIDS IN AS WE GET DROPS (WHICH IS A REGULAR OCCURENCE IN THE FALL).  PLEASE SIGN UP AS SOON AS POSSIBLE SO WE CAN GET YOU IN WHILE WE HAVE SPACE. EMAIL ANY QUESTIONS TO This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .

Attached to this article is our opening informational memo for the fall 2015 baseball season. Sign ups start Saturday May 23 and run through July 15. Sign up in that window and you're in - after July 15, we'll wait list and let kids in as space allows. Practices will start in late August with games running from the weekend after Labor Day through the first weekend of November.  Keep in mind that when signing up, your child automatically moves up to the next league, i.e. the league they will play in during the spring of 2016, with players with 2016 league ages of 10, 11 and 12 playing in single age group leagues and players with 2016 league ages of 13 and 14 moving up to Pony. There are some exceptions as noted in the memo.  We usually try and keep teams more or less together from the prior spring in rising age groups 5 and 6 and down. The rest of the leagues have a modified draft format.  There are some features regarding the fall program that work a bit different that the spring, so be sure to take a look at the memo as it should answer all of your questions about fall ball, in particular the highlighted section.

Hope you can join us. Thanks, NYO Baseball
