McMinnville Youth Baseball and Softball, otherwise known as MYSB, is the premier baseball and softball league located directly behind McMinnville Civic Center. Seven recently refurbished fields offer all MYSB age groups a high-quality athletic experience.
Athletic coordinator and league administrator Kevin Roberts has worked diligently to compile information on how best to improve the athletic programs at the Civic Center and now MYBS has a newly designed and easy-to-navigate website jam packed with information about the sports scene at the Civic Center.
The new website contains information regarding rules and regulations about the various leagues but also rules on conduct among players, parents, and coaches. The desire of MYBS is not just to create a competitive league for all ages but a program to instill proper techniques and a safe, fun learning environment.
“Every child deserves an experience and MYSB desires every competitor at every age and skill level to leave the field with fond memories that will last a lifetime,” said Roberts. “Many people feel it’s not always about winning and most children are just happy to be among friends having fun. Winning is just icing on the cake.”
Every child does not have the same opportunities and skill set. The MYBS website has a wide variety of tutorial training videos for pitching and fielding. This part of the website can be used at home when an athlete is away from the ball park.
The coaches section is dedicated to player eligibility, league rule books, and a new concussion certification to help ensure player safety. How to understand what a concussion is and how to respond if an athlete shows signs and symptoms. Roberts wants to emphasize a safe playing environment for all age groups.
A league information section is used to provide parents or guardians with team schedules and standings throughout the season. There is a FAQ tab with over 20 of the most frequently ask questions by parents to the staff.
