RESULTS UPDATED 5/22 11:00 PM with Sunday results and championship match ups; Sunday champions crowned in nine leagues and divsions - PCA winners announced- see the attached Circle of Champions and each of the game spreadsheets for all the results and recipients.

What a Championship Sunday with 9 incredible finals in Pony American, Pony National, Bronco, AA Gold. AA Silver, A Gold, A Silver, Rookie Gold and Rookie Silver with PCA awards being handed out to well deserving recipients in all leagues. The kids really treated us to some phenomenal baseball and coaches really had their teams playing at spectacular levels. And then throw in the best weather we've ever had on the Championship Sunday. What a way to finish up. 

Thanks and congrats to all the hard working members of our baseball committee, especially league directors and our umprie coordinators for keeping all the plates spinning so well in their respective leagues.  

The magic continues Monday night at 5:15 and 7:30 with our first finals in International and Majors on Field of Dreams, with the "if necessary" games to be played on FOD on Wednesday.

Fall ball is right around the corner. Sign ups will be online from May 28 through July 29. Many more details to follow on that shortly both here on the website and in a direct email to parents in our spring leagues.

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
