Welcome to McDonough Youth Baseball, home of the AABC Roberto Clemente World Series.
McDonough Youth Baseball offers a supervised recreational and select baseball program for kids, ages 3-14. All games are played according to the rules and policies set forth by the American Amateur Baseball Congress, (AABC), with some additional ground rules set forth by the McDonough Youth Baseball Board of Directors.
McDonough Youth Baseball is also a proud supporter of Sunshine League Baseball, a special needs baseball program for boys and girls in our community. A beautiful new facitlity was built in 2005 at Richard Craig Park.
The Board of Directors and the McDonough Youth Association look forward to exceeding your expectations in order to make the McDonough Youth Baseball experience a positive one for the fans, the parents and most importantly, the kids that play the game.
Spring Baseball Registration
***We have extended online signups from Sunday morning to next Friday, February 6th at 4pm. Please take advantage of this opportunity and get your child signed up. If you are getting a message back stating that all programs are full or not available, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
We are also in need of coaches in all age groups so please Volunteer if you can.
The cost will be $70 for the 3/4 age group and $140 for 5 - 14 year olds.
Starting this year, MYA will NOT be providing uniforms (hats and shirts) to teams so that we do not have to raise the cost of registration. Teams looking to get this put together, can contact All Star Sporting Goods at 678-432-9491 when you are ready to order them.
For the kids that are 7-14 years old, the Evaluations and Draft will take place on Feb 7th at Richard Craig on each age groups field and the times are listed below.
13/14 - 10:00am
11/12 - 11:00am
9/10 - 12:30pm
7/8 - 2:00pm
For the ages 3-6 year olds, they will not have to try out and they will be hat picks and then put onto teams. The date and time has not been set up quite yet and as soon as it is, I will get it posted.

2015 Board Meetings

Background Consent Form
There will be a new process by which we will administer the Henry County Parks and Recreation background check for all individuals that interact with the children in Henry County Parks and Recreation programs. This new process will become effective on Tuesday, 6 July, 2010. The new form is listed here as well as in the Handout section where you will see the newly updated Background Check Application and the new page 2 instruction sheet that should be printed on the back of the application and thus becoming a 2 sided document. This document supersedes all other Background Check Applications and become effective on 6 July, 2010.

Henry Co. Bans Smoking in parks
Thinking about smoking a cigarette in a Henry County park? Think again.
The Henry County Commission Monday passed an ordinance that makes inhaling, exhaling, burning or carrying a lit cigar, cigarette, pipe,or any other combustible substance illegal in any of Henry's 27 parks.
The ordinance passed unanimously and takes effect immediately.
Citing concerns over second-hand smoke, commissioners said the ordinance is to protect the health, safety and welfare of the county's residents.
Commissioners also said potential fire damage to the county's 1,200 acres of parks is also a concern.
Signs will soon be posted in each park to notify residents of the new ordinance.
