Last Sunday, the 12U Cooperstown team held their 1st annual skills clinic geared toward teaching 7-9 year old BYBA players the fundamental skills of baseball and to have fun doing it. The clinic was organized, marketed, and run entirely by the 12U players as a means of raising funds toward their trip to Cooperstown, NY (home of the Baseball Hall of Fame) later this summer when they play against 103 teams from across the country. 46 kids attended the clinic, which played to rave reviews from parents and kids alike, and included 8 skills stations, a hot dog lunch, and a finale game of ”pickle” to round out a beautiful day on the ballfield. Thank you to everyone involved for their support of the Cooperstown team – wish these Boys of Summer good luck in NY next time you see them!

The Summer Tournament baseball program is a competitive league that augments our regular season league and supports one to three teams per league starting at Sandlot (8 years) and ending at Sauer (14 years). 

Summer tournament teams are a more rigorous training program for developing baseball players and require a higher level of effort, focus and commitment than the regular season.  All Summer Tournament team players spend the spring playing on a regular season BYBA team.  Most teams play their first tournament of the season on Memorial Day weekend and then continue throughout the summer on a regular basis after the regular season ends.  Each team is run by a group of Tournament Team coaches who are appointed by the League Director.  Typically, one of the teams is designated as the A team (the Red team) and one as the B team (the Blue team). Typically, the A team will seek to play in the more competitive A brackets of local tournaments. In the Mudville division, we typically form a third team of all 9U players (the White team).

The League Director of each league is responsible for forming the respective league’s tournament team in late April. Tournament teams are highly selective and players are selected based on a variety of factors, including:

  • Attitude, effort and ability
  • Observed performance during the regular season
  • Coach evaluations based on regular season play
  • Viewing day performance (conducted in late April; Mudville, Reyna and Sauer only)
  • Tournament season availability (families should schedule summer plans to make at least 3 of 4 or 4 of 5 tournaments)

Assessments and selections will be made by a committee of experienced tournament coaches. Not all players will be selected.

Each team participates in tournaments held in nearby towns throughout the summer, typically Memorial Day through late July or early August. Coaches and team to decide tourney schedule (~ 4 to 6 tournaments per team). Anticipate minimum of 2 practices per week (one field practice and one batting cage practice). The cost is approximately $375 – $450 per player for the summer and includes

  • Uniforms (hat, jersey, socks)
  • Insurance
  • Field and light fees
  • Equipment
  • Tournament entry fees
  • Fees are only due once player is selected to a team

Burlingame Youth Baseball Association DRAFT PHOTO SCHEDULE 2017[1]

Tragic loss of one of our former BYBA players…Thoughts and prayers to the Baylock family.


“As youth coaches, it is us who are supposed to make indelible, life-long impressions on the players we coach, but in some rare instances, the reverse happens.  During my first season as a coach in BYBA, I had the absolute pleasure of coaching Nick alongside his dad, Joe (and Cathy who knew more than all of us) – what a great family. I still remember Nick’s innocent smile, curious and precocious mind, and rocket left arm on the mound. As the bench coach on the team, I would talk to the players while they were in the on deck circle waiting for their at-bat, and I have very vivid memories of light-hearted conversations with Nick where he would school me on game situations or the latest baseball stats, or the best up and coming rookie ball players in the majors (mostly Giants players…) – always talking with a twinkle in his eye and glee in his heart.  While Nick was a very strong and accomplished baseball player and athlete, it was clear at an early age that his talents in life were going to make a bigger impression on this world outside of the foul lines.  Nick obviously left this world too soon, but he still did an amazing job making his time here count.  He will be missed, but never forgotten.”

Nicholas Baylock


July 7, 1993 – March 28, 2017


Nick passed away on Tuesday March 28th after a long, tough battle with sarcoma. His life was cut too short at just 23 years old but he loved every moment of it. When asked how he wanted to be remembered he said, “A man filled with life and love. A sports database, loving husband, and devoted son. Enjoyed every minute of life”. Nick was always up for a challenge whether it be an eating contest, a sports trivia question or his battle against cancer. He never gave up and never stopped living.

Nick was the biggest Warriors and Giants fan, watching every game religiously even if he had to yell at the television a little bit to help coach them. He graduated from Burlingame High School where he was a three-sport Panther athlete and a member of the 2010 CCS championship baseball team. Nick worked at Sam’s Sandwiches in downtown Burlingame where he loved eating their delicious sandwiches and, of course, working a little bit too. After graduating from the University of San Diego in 2015, Nick worked in sales at Nutanix in San Jose; which was his dream job at a Silicon Valley start-up that went public while he was battling cancer. He was frequently a top salesman driven by competition and he often set the record for number of phone calls made just because he could.

He met the love of his life, Natalie, three years ago and they shared the most amazing memories together and married in December. He never came close to beating her on the golf course, but it was one of the rare competitions where he didn’t mind. During the six month battle she never left his side, staying every night alongside him to be his personal nurse and cheerleader. Nick passed away at Stanford Medical Center with his family by his side and his chin held high. He is survived by his loving wife, Natalie, his parents Joe and Cathy Baylock of Burlingame, brother, A.J. of San Bruno, grandmothers Mary Thompson and Rosina Baylock, uncles, cousins and beloved in-laws and friends Bob, Patti and Sabrina Bodnar of Pleasanton.

A memorial service will be held at 12pm on Saturday April 8th at St. Catherine of Siena Catholic Church, 1310 Bayswater Ave. Burlingame, CA 94010. There will be a celebration of life to follow at the parish center from 1-4pm. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Sarcoma Foundation of America (curesarcoma.org) or the Burlingame Youth Baseball Association, P.O. Box 1633 Burlingame, California 94010 in memory of Nicholas Baylock. Nick will be missed but never forgotten.




Former BYBA player to get opening day start for Cincinnati Reds!


GOODYEAR, Ariz. (AP) — The Cincinnati Reds chose newcomer Scott Feldman to start on opening day against the Philadelphia Phillies.

It’ll be the third opening day start for the 33-year-old Feldman. The right-hander also opened seasons for Texas in 2010 and Houston in 2014.

Injuries have depleted the Reds’ rotation for the second straight spring training. Homer Bailey had surgery to remove bone spurs from his elbow and is expected to miss the first two months of the season. Anthony DeSclafani, who was in line to start the opener, will go on the disabled list with a sore pitching elbow.

Feldman signed a one-year deal with the Reds on Jan. 26 that guarantees him $2.3 million. He has a chance to make an additional $2.2 million based upon starts.

He was chosen over Brandon Finnegan to start the game on April 3 at Great American Ball Park, where he’s pitched only one other time in his career.

“It’s pretty cool,” Feldman said. “I know the about the history of Cincinnati, being like the capital of opening day.”

The city has a downtown parade before the opening game. Popular former Reds star Sean Casey is this year’s parade grand marshal.

Feldman’s only appearance at Great American Ball Park was a start for the Cubs on May 24, 2013. He took the loss after going 5 1/3 innings and allowing five runs, including a homer by Joey Votto. He also hit a homer off Bronson Arroyo, who is trying to win a spot on the Reds’ roster.

The Reds signed Feldman because they wanted a veteran who could fit into the middle of the rotation. The injuries opened the way for him to start the first game.

“He has a savvy that will serve us well,” manager Bryan Price said. “Part of the decision is the fact that we don’t have Homer or DeSclafani ready to go.”

Feldman will be the Reds’ third different opening day starter in three years. Johnny Cueto started in 2015, when he was traded to Kansas City. Raisel Iglesias started last season in place of DeSclafani, who injured an oblique during spring training. Iglesias was moved into the bullpen later in the season.
