This year GYB celebrated the 14th year of the Jim Christ Neighbors Helping Neighbors Tournament. The tournament was created in 2000 to assist the family of Jim Christ, a long time coach and volunteer with Glenview Youth Baseball who unexpectedly passed away. Jim had been coaching within GYB for many years and several of his sons were playing in GYB when Jim passed away, leaving behind a wife and 5 children under the age of 12. Initially, the proceeds of the tournament were donated to help his family but has evolved into much more of a community initiative over the years. A barbeque picnic is done every year in conjunction at OLPH Church parking lot to raise funds, and proceeds from the tournament are donated as well to the Needy Family Fund to help local families from Glenview and neighboring communities that are facing financial hardship. It may be due to the death of a loved one that was a income earner for the family, loss of a job, etc. Funds are given to families to help pay mortgages or rent, utilities, food, clothing, school supplies, etc. Since the tournament began, GYB has proudly donated over $200,000 from the proceeds of the tournament to the Needy Family Fund to help these families try to make ends meet.
GYB wishes to thank Tim Heublein and all the board members, coaches, parents, and volunteers for helping to make Jim Christ a success. There is a tremendous amount of work that goes into preparing a tournament and without all the many hours of volunteering GYB coud not offer so much to our Youth Baseball Community.
Thanks to all the teams who played in the 2014 Jim Christ Memorial Tournament and congratulations to the winners:
9U - Chicago Mudcats
10U - Wheatland Athletic Association
11U - Chicago Mudcats
12U - Wilmette Green
13U - Glenview Patriots Red
14U - Glenview Patriots FT
Welcome to Glenview Youth Baseball
Glenview Youth Baseball has offered baseball for more than 50 years to boys and girls from kindergarten to 18 years of age. In 2013, we fielded more than 90 house league teams, more than 15 travel teams, and even a few fall league teams (for those who can't get enough baseball).
More than 1,000 players participated in Glenview Youth Baseball programs in 2013, which is designed to provide a positive learning experience for all of our youth. We emphasize the importance of teamwork, sportsmanship, and improving our players' and umpires' fundamental skills, and, of course, improving life skills such as winning and losing with class. But above all, participating in our program is just plain fun.
We are excited to have started the 2014 season!
