GYB kicked off the pre-season Mustang House League Draft at Westbrook February 28th. Coaches spent the entire morning drafting players and choosing their teams.
Glenview Youth Baseball is signing up team sponsors for the upcoming house league season! We anticipate more than 80 teams this season. Your support helps keeps the cost of our program affordable. Without your generosity we could not have a Glenview Youth Baseball League with the best baseball fields and facilities in the nation. Last year we spent over $70,000 installing brand new batting cages and sun shades at CPW, and did major field repairs on the Westbrook fields. We look forward to new concession facilities and to fill other requests from our baseball community. Please register with a credit card by clicking here

Glenview Youth Baseball is offering interested students 13 years of age and older the opportunity to work as a baseball umpire in Glenview. Umpiring is a part-time job that provides after-school and weekend work opportunities. Umpiring is a great opportunity for the students to take responsibility, be assertive, and work cooperatively with their peers and adults. Please visit the the Umpire page of the GYB website for more information and to register. Click here.

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 2014, we fielded more than 75 house league teams, more than 15 travel teams, and many fall league teams (for those who can't get enough baseball).
More than 1000 players participated in Glenview Youth Baseball programs in 2014, 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 look forward to the 2015 season!
