CYPRESS, CA JULY 8, 2008- In the inaugural National Youth Baseball Championships, Diamond Sports has been chosen to be the official baseball by the Major Youth Baseball Alliance, LLC (MYBA), governing body of the championship. The National Youth Baseball Championships consist of the highest placing teams in the U10 and U12 World Series from AABC®, AAU®, Babe Ruth®, Dixie Baseball®, NABF®, PONY League®, Super Series® and USSSA®.
The collaboration of the eight national youth baseball organizations will bring together eight million players to compete to be the true National Champion. Over the course of four days, the two pools of four teams will play against each other. The winners of each pool will go head to head on the final day for the nationally televised finals.
“We are very excited to work with the Major Youth Baseball Alliance and the eight organizations associated with the alliance. The goal of having one true champion in youth baseball will be something special that we are looking forward to being a part of,” said Andrea Gordon, President of Diamond Sports. “Competitive youth baseball has been growing so much that the possibility of crowning a single champion was not possible until now. Memphis will be the place to be in the end of August.”
“For the first time we will determine a real national champion because right now all these organizations have their own championship and then it stops. We never really know who is #1, well we’re going to know now!” said Eddie Einhorn, Founder and Chairman of MYBA who has envisioned an alliance of the major youth baseball organizations for some time and early this year put the resources together to bring the biggest championship field ever amassed in baseball. “One thing that binds us together is they all love youth baseball, dedicated their lives to youth baseball.”
