TYBA is proud
to announce that there is again NO fee increase for 2008. Our
registration fee is only $75.00 for the first child in each family, with
a$10.00 discount to each additional child of the same family. There
is also an �Early Bird Discount� of $10.00 per child, if your application
is received by February 10, 2008. Returning families will be
given priority until February 10, 2008. After that, all applications
will be accepted on a first-come, first-served basis until our enrollment
is filled. This year we are also offering
online registration with Visa or Mastercard at

season. If you are thinking of coaching in 2007, please let
us know now. With our draft system, baseball and softball
managers and coaches must volunteer early, and are encouraged to attend
tryouts of all players in their coaching divisions. We would also like to hear
from Tee-ball coaches.
One of TYBA�s goals has been to provide a quality but affordable instructional baseball league for the community. Our registration fees are still among the lowest in the area. We do not have special fund-raisers or sell raffle tickets or novelties, and we do not have a concession stand to raise funds. In 2006, enrollment fees provided only a small percentage of the income needed to offset expenses for uniforms, equipment, postage, field maintenance, printing, insurance, trophies, professional umpires, and training for coaches and managers. The balance of our income has always come from personal and business contributions and donations. TYBA does not turn away any child, regardless of the family�s ability to pay.
2008 it will cost over $115.00 per child to provide the TYBA experience.
Each child�s �FAIR SHARE� would therefore be an additional
$40.00, or $115.00 total. For
parents who can afford to pay their �FAIR SHARE,� please
consider sending an additional $40.00 tax-deductible contribution, or
whatever you wish to contribute, to TYBA with your registration.
Please check to see if your employer offers matching contributions! There will be no further
solicitation of FAIR SHARE contributions beyond this letter. Support TYBA and help us continue
to provide quality instructional baseball to our Center City
