NYBC Powered by Brita to Celebrate its 10th Year in 2017

The National Youth Baseball Championships powered by Brita will celebrate its 10th anniversary in 2017 as travel baseball teams from around the country will meet on July 24-30 at Baseball Heaven in Yaphank, N.Y.

Steel Sports is teaming up with top tournament organizations and venues on 18 qualifiers spread around the United States from January-June. All World Baseball, Baseball Heaven, Game Day USA, The Baseball Legends, Travel Sports Baseball and Xtreme Diamond Sports will operate qualifiers nationwide. With the inclusion of first class venues in Louisiana’s Cypress Mounds Baseball Complex, Iowa’s All-Star Ballpark Heaven and Missouri’s Ballparks of America on the qualifier schedule, the NYBC will feature events in 12 states, the most in its 10-year history.

“Steel Sports is honored to carry the National Youth Baseball Championships into its 10th year,” Steel Sports CEO David Shapiro said. “We are committed to creating a major league experience on and off the field when it comes to the competition, venue, national television, social media coverage, educational opportunities and interaction with MLB alumni. With the help of outstanding partners like Brita, the NYBC will host more youth players and teams than ever before in 2017 and continue to shine as one of the premier youth events in the country.”

CBS Sports Network will nationally televise 12 games during NYBC’s championship week, and will live stream all 12 broadcasts online. The week will also feature an opening ceremonies, a televised 12U All-Star Game, appearances from Major League Baseball celebrities and a festival throughout the week to commemorate the 10th anniversary.

“Having traveled to youth baseball events all over the country, I can say the National Youth Baseball Championships is unlike anything I have experienced,” former Major League Baseball player and manager Bobby Valentine said. “The NYBC is everything youth baseball should be about, a positive and fun experience that offers much more than high level competition on the field. I’ve been fortunate to be a part of the NYBC the last two years, and it’s something I want to continue being a part of for as long as I can.”

NYBC qualifying begins on Martin Luther King Jr. weekend (Jan. 14-16) with events in Arizona, California and Florida. Additional qualifiers will be held later in the year in Illinois, Iowa, Louisiana, Michigan, Missouri, Nevada, New Mexico, New York and Texas.
