Thanks to everyone who took part in the Baseball Swap Meets March 20 and April 24. There was a great turnout and a lot of gently used baseball equipment changed hands. Pictures below are from this year's swap meet. Already looking forward to next year's meet.

We are excited to be playing baseball again, but please remember (so we can keep playing): If you’ve been exposed to someone who has tested positive for Covid-19, it’s your responsibility to self-quartine for 14 days. If out in public, wear a mask, wash hands, & stay 6 ft apart.
If you suspect that you are not getting blast emails sent out from SYBA (we send a lot of them), the following articles may help you:
If these do not appear to help, you can contact Sportsengine by emailing (email@example.com) and ask to check for email suppression.
Hope that helps.

Thanks to everyone who participated in SYBA's baseball equipment swap exchange. Gloves, bats, spikes, helmets and pants were dropped off and picked up. We were also able to collect seven large bags of equipment that will be donated to a charity. Nothing went to waste. Thanks everyone.
