Dear RYBSA Families:


Dear RYBSA Families:

As the 2020 RYBSA baseball season comes to a close I would like to thank all of you, the families of RYBSA, for helping us have a successful season for all of our kids. This year brought many “what ifs” from will we ever play to how to keep all safe when we start to play. Hundreds of hours went into planning, implementing and maintaining the 2020 season and all of the RYBSA Board Members did a great job and I would like to say Thank You to each and every one of them.

RYBSA’s main objectives every year is to teach kids the basic skills of the game while they learn the concepts of team, respect and dignity. RYBSA works with over 300 young boys and girls annually to teach them the "American Past Time” and I feel we accomplished all of this with the help and dedication of the volunteers who coach and serve on the board.

2020 unfortunately is my last year as President of RYBSA. As well as being a member of the board, I have been happily involved since 2005. I have seen boys and girls become avid enthusiasts of the great game, while seeing many children and families create lifelong memories and relationships as they compete at the Martin Street field. These past few years, we as a board, have worked tirelessly on many, many improvements including building a new concession stand and storage building between Fields 5 and 6, and building a new garage to store our equipment at the lower fields. As I write this letter, Fields 5 & 6 are being completely upgraded to enhance our players’ experiences.

Over my past 15 years I also have made memories that will last a lifetime, and I am truly blessed to be able to say that I was part of such a great organization that truly cares about the children who play in the league, whether they are first year players or a players who have been in the league for 8 years.

I would like to say thank you to my wife for allowing me to spend 1,000’s of hours doing what I loved to do, while seeing my 3 children go thru a program that have made them into better individuals.

Thank you to all the board members, volunteers and sponsors for all they have done over the years. RYBSA will always be a part of the Salera household and we are looking forward to what the future brings.

Thank you,
Paul Salera
President, RYBSA
