News and Announcements
It’s certainly been a crazy stretch and while youth sports may rank low on the list of life events being disrupted, we thought we would provide an update. It goes without saying that the remainder of the indoor clinics have been cancelled. From there, very little is certain. In short, we are preparing for best and worst case scenarios simultaneously.
If anyone needs additional confirmation that we live in an incredible community, we reached out to our sponsors this week, who couldn’t have been more supportive. Collectively they are committed to this season if we have one and if we don’t they will roll their sponsorship over to next year. As a result, we are finalizing uniforms that will either be put to use this spring or will be put in storage until spring of 2021.
Most importantly, we at HYBSA hope you and families are all safe and healthy. Don’t forget to throw the ball in the yard. Hopefully we need those arms warmed up sooner rather than later!
This year we are doing a cash raffle as our fund raiser. Each ticket is $25 and gives the buyer a chance at winning one of two (2) $1000 prizes. We will be drawing the winners on 2 separate dates. The first $1,000 drawing will happen on May 3rd, immediately following the Opening Day Parade. The second $1,000 drawing will be between the Minors and Majors Championship games on June 7th at Flagg Field.

HYBSA provides over 350 children with the ability to participate in youth sports each year. We rely on fundraising to maintain the fields, purchase equipment and to support our “no kid left behind” program where we reduce or waive registration fees to ensure that any child in Holliston is offered the opportunity to participate.
Attached, please find a list of all sponsorship opportunities. All of these sponsorships offer a great opportunity to advertise your business while showing support for the town and youth sports.
Thank you for your consideration and support of Holliston Youth Baseball and Softball.

It’s that time of year again to register for Holliston Youth Baseball and Softball for the spring 2020 season! HYBSA provides opportunities for all Holliston boys and girls from currently enrolled in Kindergarten through 8th grade to participate in baseball and softball programs. The spring season, which commences with indoor clinics in March, starts outdoor sometime in April (depending upon condition of fields) and continues through approximately the end of the school year, is grade-based and intended to be instructional. The level of instruction, commitment, and competition varies with age and is summarized in the Registration section.
On Monday October 28 at town meeting, both articles that impact Holliston Youth Baseball and Softball passed. As a result, $100,000 has been allocated for field improvements and an additional $20,000 for a machine that grooms infields. The strength of the yes vote reflected the fact that so many of you were there and the level of importance you place on the issue.
