bring baseball and softball to Havana area youth.

We are reaching out to our banner sponsors to ask for your renewed support of the Havana Youth League to help with the costs of field maintenance, gameday field preparations, and umpires.

    HYL Board announces COVID cancels fundraisers

    HAVANA – Due to the pandemic and its uncertainties, the Havana Youth League (HYL) Board of Directors announced that their fundraising events such as the popular Bags Tournament and Mice Races held in February are canceled for 2021 season.

    The all-volunteer Havana Youth League provides recreational and travel-league baseball and softball for area boys and girls from T-ball through age 14. The bats, balls, supplies, umpire fees, and t-shirts are financed through player fees. To keep those fees low the league conducts a variety of fundraising activities throughout the year.

    Keeping safety in mind has always been the goal for HYL. Until further notice, all HYL events requiring public contact are cancelled. The HYL Board fully expects and are looking forward to a fun summer season in 2021.
