REMEMBER: Our registration has a built-in, instant $25 fundraiser for you! Each registered player gets five raffle tickets worth $5 each to either sell off and earn $25 to put back in your pocket (making your registration that much cheaper!), OR you can keep the five raffle tickets, put your own name on them, and be entered to win some REALLY COOL prizes Opening Day, February 25, 2017. Or you can sell some and keep some. :) Whether you keep them for yourself or you sell the raffle tickets and keep the $25, make sure you turn in the stub with the person's information on it (full name and a phone number). You can drop off your tickets in the BYB office and they'll be entered in the big barrel where we draw winners' names from on Opening Day. Winners need not be present to win prizes Opening Day.

Did you know? The STALLIONS Baseball team is for those with special needs, ages 4 and up. Sign up for Stallions by February 11, 2017. For more information, see the flyer by clicking HERE.
"When does the season start and end?" Opening Day will be Saturday, February 25, 2017 and Closing Day will be Saturday, May 20, 2017 (subject to change). We are planning an Opening Day Carnival and a Closing Day Ceremony just like those we had during the Spring 2016 season, ONLY BETTER! "How do I sign up my child?" You can register your child for the Spring 2017 online by using our Online Registration budget toward the top of this website page. Or you can come in to one of our scheduled dates in the office where we can register you in person. We have the necessary registration forms in our office, and you will need to bring a copy of your child's birth certificate. You can pay for your child's registration with cash, check or credit card at our office. "How do I find out which team my child is on?" Players find out which team they're on by attending the Meet Your Manager/Pancake Breakfast Saturday, January 28, 2017 from 7 a.m. - 11 a.m. or hearing from their coach (via the phone number you provide on your registration) soon after that date. Practices will begin around the first week of February, 2017.
"I'm interested in coaching, where do I start?" First of all, THANK YOU! We need great volunteers like you! When you come to register your child, pick up the Manager/Coach application and fill that out. We will also need you to fill out a background check form and pay for your background check. Both the coach application and the background check forms are available by visiting our Rules & Forms page. The background check is required annually, so if you had one last year, you still need to do one this year, for the safety and benefit of our children. The cost of the background check is $20. You will be notified before the Meet Your Manager/Pancake Breakfast if you are coaching a team this season. "Who needs to get a background check done?" Anyone who is out on the field or in the dugout with kids during practices and games needs a background check. This includes parent helpers and Team Moms. "I'd like to umpire. Where do I start?"If you are interested in being an umpire for the Spring 2017 Season, please contact us with your information and experience at firstname.lastname@example.org Your information will be sent on to Mike Valentich, Umpire in Chief on the Beaumont Youth Baseball board of directors. "Do kids need to try out for the Spring 2016 season?" BYB does not hold TRY OUTS, but instead we have EVALUATIONS. EVALUATION INFORMATION: Every player from age 7 and up (divisions Pinto 7 and up for boys, and 8USoftball and up for girls) will need to attend ONE of our Evaluation dates, which will be held on Saturdays, January 7, or 14, 2017. The times for evaluations are broken down into their age division: Pony & 16U: 9:00 a.m. Bronco & 12U: 10:00 a.m. Mustang & 10U: 11:00 a.m. Pinto 7-8 & 8U: 1:00 p.m. Players should be "practice-ready," meaning they should be wearing cleats, bring a glove, and bring any other equipment they use to show their skills in the areas they will be evaluated in: hitting, catching, throwing, running, pitching, etc. Arrive early to ensure you have time to sign in and warm up. Evaluations are nothing to be worried about, and if you're registered by before or on the dates of evaluations you'll be guaranteed placement on a team if you have attended an evaluation date. Evaluations are useful for the league because they help us form balanced teams of individual players based on their evaluations records. It is necessary for your child to attend just one of the evaluation dates. Once evaluations are finished, team rosters will begin to be formed.
Noble Creek Park is located north of Interstate 10 on Oak Valley Pkwy, between Oak View and Beaumont Avenue. Our BYB office is located where the red X is displayed in the photo. Bottom border of photo is Oak Valley Parkway. Here's what our office looks like!
Even the little guys help out with picking up the bases.
Coaches/Managers/Parent helpers: PLEASE remember it's your responsibility to remove your bases and mounds at the end of your practices.
Even though we have more than 1300 people who "LIKE" our BYBSB Facebook page, our posts are sometimes seen by only a small fraction of those people. If you're missing some of our Facebook posts, here are some settings that may help. (Facebook is sometimes the first method of communication that we use, depending on the location of the person posting, so being connected with our Facebook ensures you'll get the most up to date information!)
Refocusing on the Y in BYBSB
It's not BB (Beaumont Baseball). It's not BAB (Beaumont Adult Baseball). It's BYBSB. The Y is the entire reason WHY there's a BYB. Here we are in the last two weeks of the 2015 Spring season, it's tournament time for most of the league, and this is an important time to STAY POSITIVE! Parents, coaches, umpires and fellow players are all to be respected, but also respectable. The players themselves also need to be respected, whatever ability and talent level they're at. This is all basic knowledge, but somehow throughout the season, things get a little serious among teams in any division, and we need a little refocusing. Whether you're a bleacher creature or a coach on the field, please remember the kids and how you want THEM to feel at the end of the game. Think of how you want THEM to have the desire to play again next season. Think of the values you want THEM to take away from this season. PLEASE revisit our Code of Conduct by clicking HERE.

Parking at Noble Creek
Just a reminder that there is no parking allowed in front of access gates on the outfields around the park. Also, please remember, parking behind Field 1 Right, past the yellow gates, is for authorized vehicles only for safety reasons. If you want to park behind Field 1 Right, PLEASE park parallel to keep the roadway as wide as possible. Within the yellow gates is not an open parking area and the yellow gates should not be passed or blocked by parked cars in any way. In the event of an emergency on a field, we want these emergency openings available to first responders. Thank you for your understanding.
Enjoy the game!
It shouldn't matter which side of the fence you're viewing the game from - good sportsmanship needs to be on the field as well as in the bleachers. As much as we encourage it in our players, we ask for it respectfully from our players' families and spectators. ENJOY THE GAME. And if you're not enjoying the game, get up and get a nice hot cheeseburger or some nachos from the snack bar. There's a 100% chance you'll feel better when you return to the bleachers with food! Here's a link to our Code of Conduct.
