UPDATED 11/19/14 - Thanks to all of those who have registered so far for 2015 spring basealll. Looks like it will be another record year for NYO Baseball.  We have now completed our open registration process.  For those who are still interested in signing up, you can still do so at any time by clicking on the Registration tab for this web site and following the prompts to get registered.  Initially, all new players will be waitlisted and we will let players in as space allows. We are just about full in all ages but we will continue to have a few spots open in some age groups.  We do continue to have a bit more room in our 4U Small Ball league, 5U Shetland Blue league and 13U-14U Pony league where sign ups tend to lag a bit, but any players should sign up as soon as possible to maximize their chances of being admitted in any age group.   If we cannot get a player in off the wait list, we would of course provide a 100% refund,  For more info on registration, click on the title for more info! Thanks, NYO Baseball

Champions Again at Triple Crown Georgia State Championship

The 11U Dirtbags continued their June undefeated streak with another Championship Title at Fowler Park (Cumming, Ga.) over the weekend of June 13-15. This follows their two previous Sunday Championships: (1) June 1 at the Sharon Springs Shootout (Cumming, Ga.); and (2) June 8 at the Grand Slam North Georgia State Tournament (Dacula, Ga.)

Triple Crown Pool Play: On Friday, the Dirtbags posted big offensive numbers. In Game 1 they beat the Suwanee Dirt Dawgs (Buford, Ga.) 12-5 behind stellar pitching from Mark O’Meara and Brendan Parks, plus timely hitting by Liam Sullivan, Tyler Hare and Champ Davis. In Game 2 the Dirtbags cruised to a 15-3 victory over Team 300 (Dallas, Ga.), relying on a solid group pitching effort from Thomas Markwalter, Hare, Sullivan, Reid Sturgis and Patrick Withers. In Game 3 on Saturday the Dirtbags took a commanding 7-2 lead over the Parkview Panthers (Stone Mountain, Ga.) heading into the final inning, only to let it slip away into a 7-7 tie. With a 2-0-1 Pool Play record, the Dirtbags were slotted as the 4th Seed going into Bracket Play.

Triple Crown Bracket Play: In the quarterfinals, the Dirtbags topped the Oregon Park Braves (Acworth, Ga.) by a 6-4 tally. Hare pitched 4 solid innings, with steady relief appearances by Sullivan and Chase Roberts. Parks, Sullivan and Hare had key RBIs.

On a rain-shortened Sunday, the Dirtbags crushed cross-town rivals the Buckhead Braves in a convincing 9-2 rout. Markwalter was fabulous on the mound in a dominant pitching performance. Thereafter, the Dirtbags were crowned tournament champions!

Thus far, the Dirtbags have only lost to one team all summer! They finish their season with a Florida adventure to the Grand Slam World Series in Panama City June 18-22.
