NYO Summer Baseball is now in full swing with about 6-8 weeks of baseball for 19 sanctioned NYO teams from age 7 up to 14.  We'll be following the ups and downs across Georgia and the southeast as our teams proudly bring the NYO brand out to the baseball world.  This summer feature 2 teams at ages 7, 12 and 13, 3 teams at ages 8, 9, 10 and 1 team at age 14.  Look out for updates as our beat reporters from each team report in with stories and updates from the road. Looks like we're already off to a big start this Memorial Day weelend with a couple of tournament championships from 2 of our 9 year old teams.  Our teams will face some big challenges with many of our teams playing high level travel tournaments and others playing teams from other parks in Dizzy Dean style tournaments. Good luck to all playing this summer and make us proud. We'll be back soon with more updates on a team by team basis

The delays caused by the rain on Sunday and Monday made the baseball all the better in Tuesday's big championship games. The kids treated us to some unbelievable action all night.

The night started at 5:00 on FOD as the Int'l Angels upset the Red Sox in a 6-3 contest, forcing a game #2 winner take all "if necessary" final on Wednesday at 6:00 on FOD.

Action continued on Garr Field where the Pony National Dodgers prevailed over the Giants 8-6 to take the crown.  Thanks to all of the Dodgers and Giants families for allowing this game to be pushed out from Sunday.

Meanwhile, over at St. John's, the AA Yankees and Tigers battled back and forth, with the Yankees finally prevailing in the championship game 9-8 with a walk off hit in the bottom of the 6th. Thanks to both teams for allowing us to move this game over to STJ.

Back on FOD, after the Astros eliminated the D-Backs in a continuation game on Wilkins, the Majors Cubs put together a great performance to take the Majors crown 6-2 over the battle tested Astros.

Finally, back on Garr, in a game continued from Sunday, the Pony American Angels prevailed 7-6 over the Tigers in a 9 inning test where both teams fought back and forth into extra innings, capping a wonderful night at the park and the 14U End of the Era party.

Whew.  Come on out for the last game of the spring season on FOD at 6:00 for the Int'l league final

Thanks to all of our league directors, coaches, team moms and other volunteers for all the hard work this last week.  Special thanks to everyone who had to fight the rain Sunday and Monday, especially everyone out there for the crazy Shetland Red Silver Championship game which ended in a driving rainstorm in extra innings!

Check out all of our regular season champions, playoff champions and runners-up and PCA Coach of the Year recipients in the attached Circle of Champions spreadsheet.

It has been quite a year and thanks to all for your patience and cooperation as we got in the 944 games on our schedule for all 118 teams and 1,504 players in our baseball program. Special thanks to all of our coaches, league directors, team moms and league coordinators, as well as everyone on or baseball committee, for all of their tireless work in putting together a fine year of baseball.

Congrats to 12U player Drew Holmes, the recipient of this year's Kyle Burnat Award, and Ben Levenbaum, the recipient of this year's Volunteer of the Year Award.

Look for some major work and completion of our new parking area once the regular season has drawn to a close. And just as soon as we wrap up playoffs, our 19 summer tournament teams will get underway with action criss-crossing Georgia and the southeast (look for website updates on that throughout late May and June).

Finally, don't forget about fall ball sign ups online running from May 23-July 15 (with sign ups continuing after that date as space allows).

That sure seems like enough.  Thanks to all, NYO Baseball

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
