Fostering teamwork, good sportsmanship, and community spirit

BYSA 2022

In 2021, BYSA completed its 38th year of providing recreational youth slow pitch softball. We felt blessed that last season was completed despite all the uncertainty and we thank the nearly 1100 players, volunteer coaches and volunteer commissioners for making it happen while staying safe with no reported Covid cases. We are now ready for the 2022 season and look forward to another successful year.

Bob Darden, Head Commissioner
