Hello NYO Nation!
It's almost time... Is everyone ready to take the field???
We've all just sprung forward and there's an eager energy in the air that feels like the entire park is on deck... you know it's time to kick off the 2017 baseball/softball season and we are all excitedly awaiting that first official pitch...
NYO's Jane Wilkins Baseball/Softball Opening Day 2017 will take place this Saturday, March 18. This is our own fantastic community tradition with a goal to get everyone in the spirit for all of the games ahead. The parade will include NYO's Christopher League, Kit Kat and Rookie softball teams and all Small Ball, Shetland Blue, Red and Rookie baseball teams. Every year, the tradition carries on as many of our older athletes come back to volunteer their time to assist the younger crowd that looks up to them... we really are a team! There is also an always impressive crew of Atlanta school and professional team mascots to really get the crowd fired-up!

Dec 30 - IMPORTANT WAIT LIST INFORMATION: As our open sign up has now passed, new sign ups for Baseball will be placed automatically on our wait list. Many of our age groups (in particular ages 4-6 and our Pony league) continue to have openings. We review the wait list daily and admit players into the league as long as we have space. Age groups fill up differently, so we must control our numbers this way. Once you are cleared from the wait list, you will get an automatically generated email informing you that you have been admitted. In the event we are not able to work you in off of our wait list, you will get a full refund. You can also withdraw from the wait list at any point before we let you in, in which case you would get a full refund. However, once you are admitted, our normal refund policy kicks in.We know it's football and fall baseball season, basketball is just getting underway and the World Series hasn't started yet, but....here's a first notice regarding signups for the 2017 spring season of NYO Baseball (rising ages 4-14) with some important attachments.

Join us this Saturday, May 17 at 10:30am on Wilkins Field to honor the 2014 Nick Napalatano recipient!

These extraordinary volunteers often begin in the program as young teens and continue volunteering throughout high school, waking up early on Saturday mornings for practices and games. Come out and show your support for the players and "buddies" of the Christopher League!
Starting September 7th, on NYO's Wilkins Field, teams of volunteer Buddies and our Christopher League players will be competing on the diamond for eight straight Saturdays. Join in the fun, play begins at 9am and runs till 10:30. Download a schedule through October 26th by clicking HERE
The Christopher League is a baseball league run by NYO for children with disabilities. The program is designed for “Buddies” ages 11 and older to assist players in the games. We anticipate having about 25 Players, so all Buddies are welcomed and encouraged to attend any game they can. We have 3 away games scheduled and we will host 2 home games with visiting teams (timed to coincide with an NYO off-week to avoid parking issues). We will also have 3 intra-squad games at NYO. All home games are played on the Wilkens/Bronco Field. Our 8 game schedule as follows: click article image or headline for schedules and download link below.
