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 travel has received a few inquires to create a 8u tournament team for the 2020 BYB season. The tournament team concept allows youth players to get a "taste" of travel baseball by participating on a BYB house team during the regular season and also play in 3 weekend tournaments during the season. Players would also participate in a limited amount of indoor winter practices at the Dawg Pound and Batavia High School Field House.
If you and your son would like to consider the 8u tournament team for 2020 send Kevin Riley an email at .
