Travel Baseball - Yorkville Eagles

The Yorkville Travel baseball program provides our players with the best baseball experience around!  We believe in developing skills, teamwork, and sportsmanship.  Our goal is to put the best team possible on the field, while teaching our players to play the game the right way.  We do this through:

Coaching: All of our teams are provided with two professional coaches to ensure that we create a positive and effective learning environment for our players.

Training: Preparation is the key to success here at Yorkville.  Each team meets for a weeknight “Swing Out” session at the Yorkville Baseball Academy, as well as an outdoor team practice on the weekends.  During the winter off-season, teams meet two times per week (swing out session and an indoor gym workout) to hone their skills and maintain camaraderie. 

Competition: The Eagles compete against the best competition in New York during our fall and spring seasons, and we go up against the best teams on the East Coast during our holiday weekend tournaments. 

 


Developmental league baseball

Our D-League is for players in grades 1 through 5 who want a more intensive baseball experience, but are not yet ready for the travel baseball commitment.  Our experienced coaches provide instruction each Sunday, with an extensive workout that includes all the skills and drills necessary to compete at a high level.  D-League is played on Sundays and every weekly session culminates in a competitive game.  D-League baseball is NEVER rained out.  On rainy days we move indoors to the Yorkville Baseball Academy.

All new players who would like to participate in the Developmental League must attend a tryout.  Our Spring Tryouts are held every Thursday at 6PM from January 9 to March 12 at the Yorkville Baseball Academy (PS 146, 1st Avenue & 106th Street).

 


Yorkville BAseball Academy

Through the leadership of John Rodriguez: 2006 St Louis Cardinals World Series Champion, and Jaime Roggenkamp: former Division 1 pitcher at New York Institute of Technology, the Yorkville Baseball Academy offers top level baseball instruction. We lead the way for our players to gain the skills, knowledge and confidence to play the game at a high level. Our instructors will cover all the basic skills including hitting, pitching and fielding. We also run camps and clinics throughout the year.
