Have you seen the NYO Good Sportsmanship Awards?

Have you seen these new awards around the park yet? Did you see the player in the A league who received this award after giving encouraging words to every player on his team after every bat? Or the catcher who accidently hit a runner on the other team with a thrown ball to third base and then went to check on the player before resuming play? Click headline or award to read more...

For the few uninitiated readers among you, the Christopher League is a baseball league run by NYO for children with disabilities. The program is designated "buddies” ages 11 and older to assist players in the games.  We currently have 27 Players signed up, so all Buddies are welcomed and encouraged to attend any game they can. We have 3 away games scheduled and we will host 2 home games with visiting teams (timed to coincide with an NYO off-weeks to avoid parking issues). We also have a special event at Oglethorpe where we will help the Stormy Petrols warm up and cheer them on against Millsaps College. Finally, we have a road trip to Rome where we play a game and then attend the Rome Braves game. All home games are played on the Wilkins/Bronco Field.

BASEBALL TEAM MOM/ DAD MEETINGS FEB 11, 12 and 18 All baseball players will know their teams and coaches by Feb 10 so it's time for the team moms or dads to step up. Volunteering to be a team mom/dad is a great way to get involved at NYO. These volunteers really make the season run smoothly for the coaches, players and parents. And it's a lot of fun! We will have three team mom/ dad meetings to kick off the season. It is important that the team mom or another team representative attend the meeting for their league.

Northside Youth Organization, the league of 1500 players located in the heart of Buckhead, started the 2014 Baseball/ Softball season by forging a team across the Atlantic Ocean.  NYO learned about a Fellowship of Christian Athletes mission project in the Dominican Republic that they could help.  The Dominican Republic kids are ages 4-18 and love to play baseball/ softball but do not have the luxury of the equipment that kids in the US enjoy.
