Welcome to NYO Small Ball
LEAGUE OVERVIEW For players league age 4 (and, if approved, 5 year olds not prepared to enter the Shetland league). This is an instructional league designed to introduce our newest players and coaches into the NYO baseball program. Players hit off a tee. Emphasis is on fun and instruction. The first part of the season is composed of a series of clinics and practices designed to teach the most basic skills of baseball. During the second half of the season, a 6-7 game season will be played on weekends with weekday practices. We will not keep scores or standings in this league and there will be no playoffs. There will not be more than 2 events per week. Teams are organized primarily amongst neighborhoods so as to encourage community involvement. All events will be at one of the NYO Tee Ball fields or W.T. Jackson Elementary. Players will be assured spots in the Shetland League during the following fall and spring seasons.
