The 20 sanctioned NYO summer baseball teams have reached the half way point of the summer. Each week our teams play approximately 100 games and we're at right about a .667 winning percentage overall - just the right combo of strong competition and excellent play. This past weekend featured something incredibly unique with all 4 of our 10 year old teams wining their tournaments, combining for a 20-0-1 record.  Our teams captured two Triple Crown travel tournaments and 2 Dizzy Dean warm up tournaments. Congrats also to our 11U Bulls who captured the Dizzy Dean Distric and  the 9U Bulls and 7U Toros who battled to the final game of their districts. We also saw deep runs by our two 12U travel summer teams as well as our 14U, 13U, 11U and 9U travel summer teams.

We're pitching in to help host the 10U Dizzy District featuring the NYO Longhorns and Young Guns so come out if want to catch some baseball. Otherwise, our other 18 other teams will hit the road wtih some of our teams starting long weekend trips to even hotter Florida.

Sunday May 29- The NYO summer baseball season is here.  This summer season will feature 20 NYO sanctioned team ages 7-14 with players all coming from our spring leagues.  Teams will be criss crossing the metro area and, in some cases, the southeast as we get started Memorial Day weekend and play through the last week of June and first days of July.  Teams will be playing a broad range of touranaments, with some teams playing straight travel baseball, others playing a travel/Dizzy Dean mix and others playing straight Dizzy Dean style tournaments leading to districts and state. Look for team posted updates right here on the web siite throughout the summer.  Looks like we are off to a good start with 4 tournaments wins this first weekend and perhaps a few more on Memorial Day.  Good luck to all of players and families this summer and thanks to all for making NYO proud.

We know we've just wrapped up a phenomenal spring season, but while its on our mind, attached is our opening informational memo for the fall 2016 baseball season. Sign ups start Saturday May 28 and run through July 29. Sign up in that window and you're in - after July 29 we'll wait list and let kids in as space allows.
This season will include our first ever fall 4U Small Ball league. More details are in the memo and will be coming this summer. Emphasis will be on fun, learing skills and keeping things moving.

Practices will start in late August with games running from the weekend after Labor Day through the first full weekend of November (one weekend earlier for 4U and 5U).
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 2017, with players with 2017 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

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.

Here's a link to see Chesny's HR:
