    About PWYBA

    Not all baseball associations are like ours!

    Plymouth Wayzata Youth Baseball Association is a non-profit 501(C)(3) organization. Back in 1979, the PWYBA organizers decided that, as a not-for-profit and charitable organization, we could give back the maximum to the kids in our community, their baseball programs, and the fields they play on. That has been our focus ever since.  Thanks for being part of PWYBA and supporting our mission.

    PWYBA's Mission:

    We are dedicated to sponsoring a recreational baseball program that:

    1. Promotes appreciation and understanding of baseball 

    2. Instills good sportsmanship

    3. Strives for excellence in baseball for youth living in our community
