North Hunterdon Youth Baseball (NHYB) is a competitive baseball program designed for children ranging in age from 4 years old to 15 years old. NHYB was formed in 1952 under the guise of North Hunterdon Little League (NHLL). In 2012, The NHLL Board of Director’s voted to undergo a change, thus forming NHYB.
NHYB is a member of the Babe Ruth League. There are six levels of play at NHYB, beginning with Rookie Ball. As the player ages, he progresses through the league concluding at the AAA or Major league level (Cal Ripken Baseball). Upon turning 13, the player then advances to the Senior League Division (Babe Ruth Baseball). In order to participate at the AA, AAA, or Major league level, a player must attend our evaluation process for team selection. This is not a tryout or cut process; the evaluations help us ensure that our teams in each age group have similar numbers of players at all skill levels.
NHYB is a non-profit organization and relies heavily on the families of the league for their participation and support as volunteers. Please support our program by volunteering.
NHYB traditionally fields 10 All-Star teams at the end of its regular season. These teams are chosen based on regular season performance and/or try-outs. It shall be the All Star Manager’s prerogative which players he selects to represent his team. Playing up at NHYB, does not guarantee a player a spot on an All-Star team. (Example: A player playing as a ten year old in the majors is not guaranteed a spot on the 10 year-old All-Star team). This applies to all age levels.
