VYBS

Vashon Youth Baseball and Softball (VYBS)

From April through June of each year, the Vashon Youth Baseball and Softball organization uses the two ball diamonds on Sunrise Ridge for play by several leagues of boys and girls ages 4 – 14.

Their mission:

“is to instill in our island youth life lessons of teamwork, individual achievement, a spirit of fair play, and a healthy sense of balance between competition and honorable cooperation.”

Opening day festivities are held in April of each year. T-ball is a co-ed program for children ages 4 to 6. The Pinto League features machine-pitch baseball for girls and boys ages 7 and 8. Older children play in Mustang and Bronco levels. The oldest age groups, are Pony and girls groups up to age 14, with fast pitch groups starting at age 8. Some games are played in West Seattle, but Sunrise Ridge fields are busy on Saturdays and some week nights.
