Rochester Baseball Families,

RYBA is organized by a dedicated group of volunteers. Through detailed planning and execution, this group is able to facilitate the team building, skill development, physical exercise, socialization, and joy that you have come to expect and appreciate from RYBA baseball.

In recent years, the pool of RYBA volunteers has shrunk substantially. RYBA needs additional volunteers to help keep baseball vibrant in Rochester. Please consider volunteering your time and talents to aid in the cause.

One of RYBA’s goals is to grow the number of athletes playing baseball in Rochester. Accomplishing this goal with fewer and fewer people is difficult and asks more and more of our shrinking volunteer set.

Planning for the 2024 season has started. This is an excellent time to become involved with the planning process to help make next season a success.  Baseball expertise is not a requirement for serving on the board or a committee. Here are some of the areas where RYBA could use help.

  • financial planning
  • tournament organization
  • uniform design and ordering
  • coaching development
  • field maintenance
  • umpire recruitment and scheduling
  • technology coordination
  • neighboring community outreach
  • team formation
  • development of rules
  • game scheduling
  • website maintenance
  • equipment ordering and management
  • communications
  • marketing
  • fundraising
  • tryout organization
  • scholarship selection
Please reach out to to express your interest or curiosity. Thank you for your consideration.
