GYB Board

The GYB Board of Directors is made up of volunteers that donate their time to help keep the league functioning. Some of the duties that they provide include overseeing the league, organizing all of the teams and information, preparing the fields for the season, filing the proper paperwork with the proper agencies, website and social media maintaining, promotions, attending meetings, handling uniform orders, managing equipment, working concession stands and much more. They don’t do it for personal gain or glory and their reasons for involvement vary. Whether it’s for a sense of community or just wanting to help, there is a common theme among them: they are happy to do it for the kids that love this game.

Thank you to these individuals for their commitment, time, and dedication!
