The Y: We’re for Youth Development, Healthy Living, and Social Responsibility.
KNOCK IT OUT OF THE PARK
The Y’s Youth Baseball League is a 8-Week program designed to be instructional in nature and non-competitive in practice. Participants learn the fundamental skills of baseball, the rules of the game, and sportsmanship values by our great volunteer coaches. Children are asked to bring a glove and the Y will provide all other equipment.
This program is offered through our Pittsfield Branch. Northern Berkshire branch baseball is cancelled.
