NYC Travel Baseball is BACK! WYAL was proud to play host in our city's return to youth and young adult baseball, bringing back our competitive, travel league with divisions for all age groups in 2020.
WYAL also expanded its offering in its Fall season in 2020 to include recreational divisions, enabling teams and players of all skill levels a city-wide baseball league they can now call home.
We look forward to seeing you again out on the fields in 2021. Registration is now open for Fall ball.
Congratulations to our first place division winners! Thank you to all participants, including umpires, coaches and fans who made our return to play possible in 2020 with safety in mind. Continue to keep well and stay tuned for future league updates!

Mission Statement - Our baseball organization is geared towards inner city youth with a focus on diversity and inclusion. Our goal is to bring competitive baseball to youth in the metro area at an affordable price. The percentage of youth who participate in competitive baseball is significantly lower than the suburbs. Sports in suburban areas have strong organized leagues and financial support. Our mission is to offer the same opportunity for youth in the inner city to play competitive baseball amongst great players all over the country. Our players often come from underprivileged households that sometimes cannot afford the expenses associated with quality travel baseball. Sports have been proven to build social skills, keep youth away from drugs, violence, and other negative activities, increase concentration in school, and build confidence. Clinical studies also show that sports have been proven to help youth establish lifelong, healthy, physical activity patterns. Our organization aims to create a positive and inspirational environment for our players both on and off the field. We strive to level the playing field and give New York City youth access to the same opportunities as other kids in the country at an affordable price. To make our mission a reality, we will depend on corporate sponsorships, government funding, and grants to operate and provide inexpensive league membership to our teams. Our goal is to never turn a player down due to financial or economic hardships.
Our newest league sponsor, sincere thank you for supporting our league and players.
