Ryan Hanson 1980-2014
All of us at TYBA are deeply saddened by the loss of Ryan Hanson, Assistant Coach at Desert Christian High School. His impact on youth baseball in Tucson will never be forgotten. Donations can be made on behalf of Ryan’s Mom Alison, and father, Mike, to Tucson Youth Baseball Association.
The TYBA Baseball Experience
January 11, 2014 at Kino Sports Complex
The clinic will be a one of a kind for the Tucson baseball community. Clinic participants will have the opportunity to interact with multiple current and ex-Major League Baseball players. These professional baseball players will teach the fundamentals of baseball along with techniques to practice at home and advanced tips that have helped them to the pinnacle of their sport. Parents will also be welcomed and encouraged to ask questions and participate in open conversations with these professional athletes at the conclusion and during the clinic.
This year, we will also have The Major League Baseball Pitch, Hit & Run Competition Presented by Scott’s. This competition is open to ages 7 – 14. Participation is FREE and includes 4 levels of competition
WHO WE ARE
Some of our fondest memories growing up is that of youth sports. Organized sports at an early age play a substantial role in teaching us important life lessons. These valuable lessons include hard work, perseverance, self confidence, teamwork, dedication, and how to overcome adversity. The Tucson Youth Baseball Association wants to make these life lessons a possibility for any child that wishes to play regardless of their family’s, team’s or school’s financial status. We want to help provide each child with an opportunity to develop a strong foundation so that they have the opportunity to grow into our community leaders of tomorrow.

Each year in Tucson, there are individuals, teams, and leagues that struggle financially to play and practice the game of baseball. Your donation will help those in need that would like to participate in clinics, tournaments, or be on teams that require entry fees. In addition, we will help provide equipment and help supplement registration costs for certain teams, leagues, and organizations that need our help. We want every child in Tucson to have the ability to play baseball without restrictions. Your donation will allow our organization to carry out these and other programs that benefit our youth baseball community.
This year, we are also partnering up with The Head for the Cure. The Head for the Cure Foundation is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization dedicated to raising awareness and funding in the fight against brain cancer. To see more information about The Head for the Cure, check out www.headforthecure.org.
If you or someone you know needs assistance with fees, equipment, team expenses please contact us.
