Welcome to the Taney Youth Baseball Association

Welcome to Taney Baseball!

2017 marks 24 seasons of Taney Baseball! We have been offering "fun, instruction, good sportsmanship and teamwork" to Philadelphia youth since 1994. In 2016, TYBA offered baseball, softball and tee-ball to almost 1,000 boys and girls from 3 years old to 15 years old, and basketball to over 450 boys and girls from 5 to 12 years old. In 2014, the Taney Dragons were the Little League Mid-Atlantic Champions, advancing to the semi-final round of the Little League World Series!

Eligibility for Playoffs and Tournament Teams

Taney Baseball is now a proud member of Little League!  We are also now subject to Little League eligibility rules. Effective immediately are the following two new eligibility rules, for baseball (ages 7-12) and softball (ages 9-13) players:

1. To be eligible for TYBA intramural playoffs, a player must have played in at least the minimum number of intramural regular season games indicated below (depending on the total number of regular season games the player's team plays):

    10 game season -- at least 6 games

    11 game season -- at least 7 games

    12 game season -- at least 7 games

    13 game season -- at least 8 games

    14 game season -- at least 8 games.

The Commissioner of a league may grant a waiver from this rule in cases where a player missed games because of injury or medical condition. In considering a waiver request, a Commissioner may require information from the player's coach, parent or guardian of the injury or condition.

2. A player who is not eligible for TYBA intramural playoffs because of not having played at least the minimum number of games required by Rule 1 above, also is not eligible to play for a TYBA tournament team.

If you would like your baseball or softball player to be eligible for playoffs (all teams) and/or a summer tournament team (by tryouts only), please be mindful of the minimum number of games required. Thank you.

TYBA Scholarship Fund (Bob Hyland Memorial Fund)

TYBA and its past presidents have started a Scholarship Fund, in order to provide opportunities for all children to play. Part of our mission -- and the legacy of our 2014 Mid-Atlantic Champions -- is to reach out to inner city youth. Please consider a donation to our Scholarship Fund. There is even an option to Sponsor a Player, where you can pay an extra registration fee, providing a full scholarship for a child to play this season. Questions? Please email us: TaneyBaseball@gmail.com

The Scholarship Fund is in honor of Bob Hyland, who passed away on October 6, 2011. Bob was the heart and the soul of TYBA for many years, right up until his death, and he is missed by all of us. In his name, we have established the Fund to continue his legacy of service to Taney youth. We ask for your support in honoring Bob and helping to create a lasting legacy in his name. Click here for more information on the Fund and how to donate to the Fund. Click here to donate to the Fund. Thank you so very much for your support.
