2019 PYO Patriots Program

The Pisgah Youth Organization continues to serve the local youth in our community as it has for over 50 years. In an effort to provide a balanced sports program, PYO launched a Select Baseball Program in 2010 fielding its first Patriot Team. In 2018, PYO fielded 16 Patriot Teams.

As an organization, PYO realizes that many of our members want their child playing select baseball. With the PYO Patriots program in place, many of our skilled players remain within the organization. PYO's goal is simple: If you're going to play select baseball, why not do it with the organization that you already belong to.  

Please consider allowing your child to tryout for a 2019 Patriot Team to play next Spring/Summer. Select/travel baseball is not for everyone. The time, talent and costs related can be considerably more than the traditional, local teams that PYO has fielded for many years. Patriot teams generally consist of 12 players. Most teams will begin off-season training in early January and play approx a 30-40 game schedule. Playing time is not guaranteed. The Patriot team's play to win and represent the most talented players that each coach assembles. The total costs vary by team, but are generally in the $750+ range.

Please see the below Patriot Coach information for the age group listed as well as the tryout information. If the date for the tryout is past, please contact the coach directly for more information.

In case of wet weather, please go the PYO website www.pyobaseball.org and hit the "Field Conditions " link to see if the Fields are open for the tryout.

Players may not have their birthday prior to May 1 of the current year. (I.e.: A player’s age on April 30 of the current season is the official age).

As more information becomes available we will update the below chart.


If the date for the tryout is past, please contact the coach directly for more information.
