Inner City Youth Baseball

The Mission of the Inner City Youth Baseball (ICYB) program is to provide free, safe and structured recreational baseball programming during the summer months to inner city youth age 9-12 who may not have the financial resources and support to play baseball.

The league reaches youth living in under-served communities, including all of the Chicago Housing Authority's (CHA) major family housing developments and the CHA's scattered-site housing.

The program also serves as the feeder program into the White Sox RBI program and gives the participants the opportunity to interact with positive role models and to experience teamwork and cooperation through the game of baseball.

The ICYB program, in affiliation with Major League Baseball's Junior Reviving baseball in Inner Cities (Jr. RBI), is operated in partnership with the Chicago Park District and features 450 youth playing on 30 teams.

To register, please visit the Chicago Park District's website or call 312-742-PLAY.
