SYB is a non-profit PONY (Protect Our Nation's Youth) organization, run by volunteers in Simi Valley since 1962. For more than 50 years SYB has been providing a great place for the youth of our community to play baseball, make new friends, build self-confidence and self-esteem.
PONY has developed a tradition of service to young people...teaching them to play by the rules, so that they will learn to live by the rules.
We invite you to visit our beautiful baseball complex at 789 Irvine Road Simi Valley, CA 93065 (just off Madera Rd), near the Sinaloa Golf course. Many families have contributed over the years to make SYB one of the premier places to play youth baseball in the nation. Players and parents alike will love the Professional Grade Turf Infields, Age Appropriate HR Fences, Bullpens, Upgraded Snack Bar, BBQ with large Covered Dining Area, Upgraded Batting Cages w/Soft Toss Areas, Wiffle Ball Stadium, Handball Court, Covered Bleachers, Score Booths, Electronic Score Boards, and more.
SYB currently have 5 age divisions. Pony 13-14, Bronco 11-12, Mustang 9-10, Pinto 7-8 and Shetland 6 and under. Each year SYB offers a Spring Season for individual players that runs March through mid-May with signups in November-December and tryouts in early January. This is followed by an All-Star season (for selected players) which runs from mid-May through June/July (depending on how far teams advance). We also run a Fall Ball Season (individuals & teams welcomed) that plays from just after Labor Day in September through the weekend before Thanksgiving in November. Simi Youth is the host of many tournaments throughout the year for travel/club teams.
SYB has established itself as one of the most competitive all-star powerhouses in the country. Since 2004, 23 SYB all-star teams have advanced all the way to the PONY World Series level, winning 9 World Series Championships in that time -- the latest being our back-to-back 2013 Pinto-7 and 2014 Pinto-8 World Series Champions. Many competitive travel/club teams get together after our spring season to continue playing games/tournaments together throughout the year, which helps strengthen the level of play at SYB.
