Now in our 61st 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.
Fall 2017 Baseball Registration Now Open
Hello BYB Families,
Registration for Fall 2017 Baseball is now open. Fall League is a great chance to play with your friends, as teams can be formed by coaches. See our Fall Baseball Team Formation rules for full details.
You also play up at the next level in many cases, so it helps introduce you to new rules, new fields and more competition. We run our Fall League with Geneva, St Charles and West Chicago, so a majority of games will be against other towns.
The season starts in late August. Games will mostly be played on weekends after Labor Day, with some weeknight games on lighted fields. The season will end around Columbus Day in October.
NEW This Season!
BYB is now offering a Combined Fall/Spring Registration. If you plan to play Fall 2017 AND Spring 2018 baseball, you can now register for both early and save 10% off your registration fees. Look under "Fall 2017/Spring 2018 Combined" on our Registration page.
We hope to see you out there this fall. Click here to REGISTER NOW.
We do require that you identify your son's team so that all feedback is in context of the experience of each team--which can vary widely based on many factors.
Rest assured that your responses are as anonymous as you choose to make them. Every family receives the exact same link, and the BYB website does not have the ability to match respondents to responses. However, we do invite you to provide your name and we give you that option--but you are not required to do so.
If you have more than one son playing BYB, please complete the survey multiple times so that all feedback aligns with the appropriate team.
Thank you for being part of Batavia Youth Baseball!
