When and where are practices held?
There is usually one practice per week. Practices times and locations are determined by the coach. Typically the coach will work with the parents to find a time that works for the majority.
When does the season start & end?
The spring house league season typically opens in the second week of April and runs through the first or second week of June.
My child made one of the Patriots teams. Can we still play in the house league?
Yes. All Patriots players are required to play in the spring house league.
What equipment will be provided by the league and what equipment do I need to purchase?
The league will provide hats and jerseys for all players. Players must supply their own baseball pants and glove. Cleats and protective cups are recommended. Many players bring their own bats but this is not required. Catcher's gear, baseballs and tees will be provided for the divisions that require them.
How/when do I find out what team we're on?
Teams are posted to the GYB website in mid-March. Those that have downloaded the SportEngine app to their mobile device will receive instant notifications when teams are posted.
Are there playoffs at the end of the season?
The Mustang, Bronco and Pony levels will have playoffs within their divisions. There are no playoffs at the Shetland and Pinto levels.
What fields will we play on?
GYB's primary baseball fields are at CPW, Westbrook and Crowley. The fields at Apollo, Flick, Roosevelt and John's park are also used but less frequently. More info on our fields can be found here.
My son wants to play with his friend. How can I make sure they are on the same team?
A limited number of friend requests are granted at the Shetland and Pinto levels. Up to two requests can be made via the designated section of the online registration. Unfortunately, friend requests cannot be granted at the Mustang, Bronco and Pony levels since those teams are assembled via a draft.
