Vestavia Hills Youth Baseball (VHYB) provides recreational baseball opportunities for kids who live in Vestavia Hills and are between the ages of 4 and 14.
The primary season is in the spring. Spring registration takes place in January. Teams are organized and begin practices in February. Games begin in March and go through May.
VHYB is a member of Metro Sports Baseball. Metro is made up of leagues from communities around Birmingham and offers post-season all-star tournaments.
There is a fall season during September and October to help kids prepare for the upcoming spring season. Fall ball is just Sunday afternoons for kids who will be playing in the 6 year old league and above the following spring. There is no fall t-ball.
4 year olds play t-ball. This is very unstructured with parents on the field and lots of chaos. No score, no outs, just fun.
5 year olds play t-ball. Slightly more structured. Only coaches on the field. Still no score and no outs.
6 year olds play coach pitch and hit off the tee if they cannot hit a pitched ball. Score is kept.
7 and 8 year olds hit from a pitching-machine that a coach operates.
9 through 14 year olds play player pitch.
