SPRING BASEBALL REGISTRATION IS NOW OPEN!!
We are pleased to announce that registration for our 2020 Spring North Hunterdon Youth Baseball season for children age 4 through 7 is still open! NHYB is a chartered organization and part of the Cal Ripken national organization. Our Rookie and A divisions include outside professional coaching resources. A divisions play with state-of-the-art pitching machines to help develop our younger players and assist with the pace of the game. New in 2020, we are expanding our field presence and are revamping Foran Field. This complex will be the third NHYB complex complimenting Jericho and Stadium 31 and will be the home for our Rookie & A divisions along with providing additional fields for our other teams to practice.
Our registration period for all 4-7 year olds will close on February 15th, 2020. We ask that all children are registered prior to this deadline so the league can ensure ample time to form the teams and to secure uniforms before the season begins.
Congratulations to our 2019 10U Red team on a great season! The team won 6 tournaments and were runners up at several more. Below is a list of their accomplishments. Many of these tournament wins were against travel/club teams across up and down the east coast. Not bad for a group of kids exclusively from our NHYB league. Way to go boys!!!!
