SYA Travel Baseball – Managers Selected

SYA Travel Baseball’s mission is to develop the skills of advanced baseball players, both on and off the field, who live within the SYA boundaries and to help prepare these baseball players for an advanced level of play/competition and for life by teaching them a wide range of skills through the game of baseball. The managers selected for the Fall 2017/Spring 2018 season to guide these players are:

8u – Bob Woodruff
9u – Doug Neely
10u – Dwayne Nitz (Jim Poythress if there is a 2nd team)
11u – Scott Bowers
12u – Ben Lorigo (Cord Chase if there is a 2nd team)

These are the managers for the A/Prime team. Should registrations/tryouts and talent depth dictate a second team we will make every effort to put a team in place and find a manager.

Composite Bat News

Travel Baseball, depending on the league and tournament, are governed by various ruling bodies. While Little League recently announced a moratorium on composite bats, USSSA and AAU – the two popular ruling bodies – have different stances on composite bats. Click on the appropriate ruling body for their stance: USSSA, AAU (look for Bat Size).

For teams playing in NVTBL, here are their rules on bats: Age 8U – 14u divisions: Players shall NOT be limited by the 2015 High School Baseball Rules published by the NFHS regarding bat dimensions. JV, Varsity and ODL teams must follow BBCOR standards. All bats need to be BPF approved.
