Now in our 60th year, BYB is an all-volunteer organization offering a quality baseball program for the children of Batavia and Mooseheart. Our programs serve over 1,200 players age 6 to 17 with over 90 teams. With no financial support from any local government, BYB raises funds through local sponsors, donations, and player fund raising. BYB is in constant need of adult volunteers to coach, prep fields, sell concessions, umpire games, etc. We encourage and need your assistance. BYB holds monthly board meetings (open to the public) on the second Tuesday of each month at the Batavia Civic Center, 327 W. Wilson, 7:30 PM during the off-season, 8:30 PM during the season May through July.
2016 Holiday Baseball Camp
Batavia Youth Baseball will conduct a two-day baseball skills camp for all players eligible to participate in Batavia Youth Baseball. The camp is run by Coach Brian Krolikowski, the BYB Travel Program Baseball Instructor.
The camp will concentrate on the Batavia Youth Baseball Standards that will be the cornerstone for individual improvement in the 2017 season. In addition to Conditioning, Batting, Hitting and Fielding there will be fun competitions and games that will reinforce the fundamentals of baseball.
