Center Grove Youth Baseball was founded in 1971 and has served the Center Grove community for over 50 years. The organization is dedicated to youth sports and specifically to youth baseball. Each year CGYB brings together over 900 young people and hundreds of adult volunteers to participate in and learn about baseball in a wholesome, safe, structured, and fun environment. CGYB considers competition healthy and instructive but de-emphasizes the importance of winning and instead promotes the importance of participation, sportsmanship, and teamwork.
CGYB is governed by a board of directors made up of coaches and volunteers. This board is, in turn, overseen by an Executive Board that ensures both the financial and philosophical integrity of the organization.
We believe that youth participation in team sports is a vital component in the optimal development of all children, and a foundational element in building a stronger community. We are always looking for additional volunteers, partners, and resources that will allow us to expand our impact on youth and our community.
At this time CGYB offers a spring league program. We also host events on our fields each summer. It is our goal to collaborate with like-minded organizations and individuals to create greater opportunities for area youth in order to help them maximize their potential both on and off the field.
Our travel league allows more competitive athletes to hone their skills by competing against teams from other geographic areas. Such opportunities provide these young athletes with physical fitness and self-confidence as well as training in teamwork and leadership. The CGYB travel team has a total of 13 teams in 2022.
