Weather & Field Status Update

Currently All Fields are CLOSED

All fields are now CLOSED as we begin our transition to the fall sport season.  Please refrain from the use of all fields as this is also a key period of non-use to allow field the time to recover from the busy spring and summer seasons. Fields will re-open at the beginning of the football/fall baseball/fall fastpitch seasons. If you see anyone using the fields, please encourage them to move off the fields and follow these guidelines. 

As always, cages are open, but do not use them in the event of rain, lightning or dangerous, frigid or sloppy conditions. Thunder & Lightning Safety Plan

Thunder & Lightning Safety Plan

Thunder & Lightning Safety Plan for NYO's Fields at Chastain Park.



* All play or practice is suspended
* All players, coaches, umpires, officials and spectators should leave the field and seek shelter immediately!

Move to a sturdy enclosed structure or a fully enclosed vehicle with the windows rolled up. No place is absolutely safe from a lightning threat, however some places are safer than others. Stay away from:

* Fields, common areas and any area of higher elevation.
* Tall isolated objects, such as flag poles, light poles or trees.
* All metal fences, bleachers and batting cages.
* Unprotected open sided buildings like dugouts, picnic pavilions, rain shelters, tents, or any covered rest area.
* All water and water fountains.

Safety is the number one consideration - common sense and good judgment should be used at all times.

Parents dropping off unattended children should have a safety plan in place for their child.
Do not return until the all clear is sounded – 3 quick 5 second horn blasts.

NOTE – For offsite NYO games or practices, umpires and coaches should follow the same safety guidelines if they hear thunder or see lightning. Play or practice shall not be resumed until there has been a minimum all clear period of 20 minutes – again common sense and good judgment should be used at all times.

Thank you!

NYO Grad Chesny Young Off To A Hot Start

Cougars second baseman Chesny Young makes a putout against  West Michigan on Sunday. | Sean King / For Sun-Times MediaNYO product Chesny Young is off to a flying start after being drafted in the June MLB draft. He's earned two promotions so far and has made his way from Arizona to Boise to Kane County, Illinois.  Good luck to Chesny the rest of the summer. Here's a link to a great article describing his early success.

The Warrior 12U boys of summer finally hit their baseball stride at the season-ending Summer Bash Tournament in Sugar Hill. The tournament was deluged with scheduling issues due to the weather in Gwinnett. It was hard to imagine there was extreme weather and flooding when less than 35 miles away back at NYO, it was sunny and clear. But supposedly human error added to the rain total at the tournament venue with someone forgetting to shut off the overnight sprinkling system so the fields got a triple dose of water and were deemed unplayable. After some scrambling, the games were moved to a nearby park for pool play.

The 12U NYO All-Stars captured the USSSA All-Star State Championship late Sunday afternoon with an 11-0 win over the Murphey Candler Cobras, capping a remarkable weekend during which NYO won all six of its games by a cumulative score of 70-10.

In the final, Susie Pieper pitched a no-hitter, backed by airtight defense from Anna Galvin and Elle Shores. NYO jumped to a 2-0 lead in the top of the first inning on nifty baserunning by Alex Bradham and KJ Pressly, and a run-scoring single from Hollis Gottlieb. The All-Stars added three more in the second and four in the third, with key hits from Hadley Griggs and Katie Atwater. That was more than enough offensive support for Pieper, who retired the first eight hitters in the game, and finished with six strikeouts and one walk.

Click on the article title above for more details.

The 10U Chaos won their second tournament title of the travel season Saturday June 21st at the GSA Summer Slam in Cartersville competing against travel teams from across North Georgia.  The team won all four tournament games by a wide margin due to timely hitting and dominant pitching by Sydney Silverstein who allowed merely one hit across four tournament games, including a no-hit, near perfect game (one walk) in the final.  Congrats to the Chaos for another excellent performance!
