LAYBS and our baseball sponsor, Xcel Baseball and Softball are excited to announce the formation of a new partnership designed to advance in the development of our young athletes within the sport of baseball.  With this partnership we are also thrilled to announce a new event which comes open for registration today – “The Xcel Baseball & Softball LAYBS Pre-Season Hitting Clinic” to be held on January 4, 2020.  Click here to register for the Hitting Clinic.  Please click the "Unassigned (1)" tab to add registration to your cart.


This event is designed to help our players prepare for the upcoming evaluation days on 1/11 and 1/18.  At this time, the clinic is being offered for baseball only (the league is currently working on a softball dedicated event in the similar light) and will be conducted via three (3) separate one-hour sessions based upon players’ age.
