Message from the Directors of Baseball

 

We are pleased to serve as Co-Directors of DYBA Baseball and are looking to build on the success of 2017 by DYBA and Chicago baseball.  We are excited by the opportunity and look forward to your participation and feedback -- more details to follow.

In 2016 and 2017, DYBA increased the resources to training and it produced positive results.  Therefore, we will continue to have clinics and group practice events run by the Deerfield High School baseball coaches, as well as many of our own travel baseball coaches.  Before, during and after the seasons, our goal is to allocate the necessary time and space for these clinics and learning experiences.

Outside of any improvements we may enact, as we do each and every year, for DYBA – our first and primary focus is the children of our program.  Regardless of the player’s age or ability, we strive to teach the benefits of baseball as it relates to life.  We need to stress to all the players honesty, and the importance of making good decisions both on and off the baseball field.  We need to stress teamwork, good sportsmanship and attempt to instill a positive working attitude in our young adults.  We, as parents, need to remember that we are here for the kids, not the other way around.

We hope as well, that all parents and players of our organization see and understand what it takes to make a league of this size run productively.  Only a few volunteers put in hundreds of hours to make sure every item from registration to the last games are great experiences for all involved.  Please consider volunteering some time and giving back to this league.  There is no organization more dedicated and productive when it comes to baseball than DYBA.

2018 SPRING T-BALL

 

Eligibility

Children are eligible to play T-Ball during the Spring if they are either (i) currently enrolled in their final year of Pre-Kindergarten (starting Kindergarten in fall of 2017) or (ii) currently in Kindergarten.

Pre-Kindergarten and Kindergarten ages will play in separate divisions for the Spring Season.

Schedule

The seasons start in Mid-April and continues to June 9th.   T-Ball is one practice/game during the week (Mon/Thurs, 6:00 start) and again on Saturday mornings.  

Game Structure

T-Ball games are broken into an initial practice and then a 3-inning game immediately after the practice concludes.   All players hit off the tee, bat every inning, positions are rotated, and no score is kept.  The total time is around 1 hour.

Location

Games will be held at Kipling School (potentially other locations depending on number of teams)

 

The success of the T-Ball season depends on the volunteer parents.  We are ALWAYS in need of T-Ball Managers and Coaches!  No previous coaching experience is necessary. We can help you though every step of the process.  Games are only one hour long and you get to spend time out on the fields with your child!  If you are interested in coaching then please register through the same process as you signed up your child. There will always be 1 manager per team and then the goal is to have an additional 2-3 coaches per team so do not feel you have to make every game in order to volunteer.
