Joe Fusaro, President, PWYBA
On January 5, 2019, the PWYBA hosted the 6th annual PWYBA/ Hammer Baseball Clinic at the CMS Dome. As in years past, the Clinic was run by former Minnesota Twin (and PWYBA Director Emeritus) Scott Leius with assistance from current and former PWYBA players and coaches and Hammer Program Coordinator, Brian Kelly. Scott put the Hammer players through various drills; playing catch, batting, and pitching before taking the field for a spirited scrimmage. More than 20 athletes from Hammer participated in the Clinic and all players received an autographed baseball from Scott. In 2018 the PWYBA was honored to be recognized as a Hammer Community Partner. Hammer has been serving individuals with disabilities in our community since 1923 and their corporate headquarters are just west of Village Chevrolet on 394.
The Plymouth Wayzata Youth Baseball Association is a 501(C)(3) charity. Not all baseball associations are like ours. Many years ago, the PWYBA organizers decided that, as a charitable organization, we could give back the maximum to our baseball programs and fields. As we approach the corporate fundraising season, we would like to make you aware that you may be able to donate to the PWYBA easily through your work.

Linklete (www.linklete.com) is a website launched by former Twin’s player and current PWYBA coach Corey Koskie. The site is connecting people through the shared experiences of sports. Linklete is a collection of authentic sports stories and experiences that will inspire and encourage us as we navigate our way through youth sports. We believe these stories will help us be better sports parents,coaches and help our kids be better players.
