ALL TEAMS THAT HAVE TURNED IN DEPOSIT & TEAM INFO SHEET HAVE BEEN POSTED. WE WILL POST ADDITIONAL TEAMS AS SOON AS THE DEP AND INFO SHEET IS RECIEVED. LOOKS LIKE WE'RE GOING TO HAVE A GREAT FALL!
We still have time to help you put your team together for our fall baseball league. We’re looking forward to another great season. We know its summer time and teams are always running behind, so we will extend the final deadline to get your team’s info sheet and deposit turned in. The very last day we can accept this is 8/22 by 6PM. All you have to do is run it by the office at 13980 Buffalo Airport Rd or get in the mail (mail to PO Box 20559, Amarillo Tx. 79114) in time to be received by deadline. Please see fall info sheet and checklist to complete the steps in putting a team together. Nothing to it, just get the kids together and after a little paperwork the rest is “Play Ball”. If you have any questions, please email email@example.com for answers. Please leave contact info in case we need to call to help.
Please remember our league rule of borrowing or adding a player for a league game. You can borrow any player from a team in your age, or a player that’s 1 year younger as long as you clear it with the kid’s regular team and follow league rule by batting him last and can’t pitch (9-14’s). You can also add players to your regular league roster as long as they are eligible through USSSAAND the kid’s parent registers them for your team on wtyba.com and you add them to your USSSA roster. No player can participate in any West Texas Youth Baseball event without being added as stated above first. If a coach is found to be breaking this rule they will be suspended for the remainder of the season and possibly banned from the program. Sorry if this seems harsh, but we have 120 teams and are very limited with our field situation so there's not much room for changes. We will get all games rescheduled by first part of next week.

Thank you for your interest in WTYBA. Our league consists of a select program an elite division for the more competitive select teams. Our program has been growing every year since 2007 and we are the largest youth baseball program in the panhandle. We work very hard to provide our region with quality baseball. The league is run with the participants in mind seeking input from many knowledgeable baseball folks. This is the participants program, run by individuals who understand the ever changing baseball trends. The program will always strive to meet the needs of the competitive baseball teams and never allow agendas or egos to get in the way of our goal for quality baseball in this area. It is not a draft league. We are very lucky in this area to have Kids Inc and Canyon Baseball Assoc who will run a recreational baseball program, assuring any kid who wants to play baseball has an opportunity to play. We do have a Free Agent list that consist of players who are looking for a team to play on. We would be happy to add your player to that list. Click the FREE AGENT link below to fill out the online form. This is NOT a guarantee of getting added to any of the select or elite teams, but only a way for parents to show their kids interest in playing for a team. We will remove the free agent list 1 week out from the deadlines to signup for any of the rec sign up leagues, which gives parents a chance to register their kid for the draft in these programs. We will work closely with both of the rec programs now and in the future to assure all kids have opportunities to play the great game of baseball!!
I hope this answers some of your questions. Let us know if there is anything else we can do for you.
