Welcome to Deerfield Travel Baseball

You've reached the home of Deerfield Warriors travel baseball.  We're proud to be a community based travel baseball organization that is operated by the Deerfield Youth Baseball Association (DYBA).

We have travel baseball teams from 8U through 14U.

We are a true community based team as all of our travel players live within the Deerfield High School border lines.  We believe coming together as a community and focusing on the development of our players as both young men and young baseball players is our main focus.  Our coaches have nearly 100 combined years of Deerfield travel baseball coaching experience.  This is led by our mentor coach, Dan Mayer.  Dan is the sophomore baseball coach at Deerfield High School, he also consults on our travel baseball program, runs the tryouts, independently picks the travel baseball teams, and helps train our other travel baseball coaches. We're also proud that our coaching staff includes numerous high school coaches as well as many former Deerfield travel baseball players serving as managers and assistant coaches.  We believe the former players who come back to coach are important role models to the young men in our program.

From the links on the left of this page you can access more information about our individual teams, their schedules, their contact information, and other fun events the teams are participating in.
