6U Field Under Construction at BYB Complex

6U Field Under Construction at BYB Complex
4/22/2018
On Saturday, April 21, 2018, BYB Board Members and a group of volunteers broke ground on the addition of a fifth field at the BYB Complex.  This field will be the new home of the fast-growing 6U Co-Ed Coach Pitch league, which BYB founded in 2017.  The league started in 2017 with six teams and about 70 players.  This year, the league has grown to eight teams and about 90 players. 

The new field will also host some of the 8U softball games.  In 2018, in conjuction with Genoa and Kirkland Softball, BYB founded the SoNIC (Softball of Northern Illinois) league.  This league combines nearby communities to play home and away games.  In addition, the SoNIC part-time travel teams are a combination of players from all of the communities involved.  These players will participate in various tournaments throughout the year.

The 6U field is located in the vacant Southeast corner of the quad of the complex, and it is expected to be completed by May 13th, 2018.  The Board of Directors is currently seeking a new Platinum Sponsor to help with costs of the project as well as secure naming rights of the new field.
