BYBA News
BYBA parents,

Happy New Year!

Always difficult to think about baseball when there is still snow on the ground, but we want to make you aware of upcoming dates and inform you of some changes being made to improve upon the baseball experience for our Byron Youth Baseball families.

 

Upcoming Dates

Registration Opens January 9 through April 2

·       Register HERE beginning January 9.

·       Late fee starts March 25

Spring Training April 1 and 2 at Byron High School Gym

Travel Tryouts April 3-7

 

Changes/Enhancements

Rookies (Completing Kindergarten Spring of 2023)

·       Instead of individual team practices, BYBA, with the help of coaches and parents, will run a weekly one-hour practice that incorporates skill development into a fast paced, fun learning environment for this age group.

·       One-hour practice and one game per week.

·       Season starts week of June 5 and ends July 29

 

8U/9U (formerly Minors), 10U, 11U, 12U, 13U and 14U non-Metro Baseball League Teams

·       Teams will be participating in the Southern Minny Baseball League based out of Rochester Youth Baseball Association.  In the past, these teams participated in the Zumbro Valley League (ZVL) with limited success. We see this as a positive change that provides Byron players the opportunity to be more competitive, includes less travel as all games will be played in Rochester or Byron, and no weekend commitments, other than a year-end tournament.

·       One practice and one game per week.  Coaches can schedule more practices if desired.

·       You can learn more about the Southern Minny Program HERE. DO NOT register on the Southern Minny Program site.  BYBA will manage the registration for all Byron Teams.

·       Games start at the end of April and close with a tournament either the 3rd or 4th weekend in July.

 

Metro Baseball League (MBL) and Zumbro Valley League (ZVL)

·       BYBA will form a MBL team at each of the 10U, 11U, and 12U levels, and a 9U ZVL team in 2023.

·       13U & 14U level MBL teams will be tournament teams to better accommodate overlap with the school baseball schedules

·       For questions about MBL contact travel coordinator, Tony Cunico at ajcunico@gmail.com

 

Uniforms

Uniforms are becoming a major expense and prices continue to rise.  To help keep costs down for families, we will be changing how we manage uniforms going forward.

No changes to 2023, but in 2024 we will be removing the uniform expense from the cost of registration and will have a separate uniform package cost.   Families will be given the option to keep their 2023 uniform and carry it over to 2024 or purchase new in 2024. 

We are informing you of this change now, so you can keep track of your 2023 uniform.
