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.

About ICYB

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.

Youth Baseball Clinics

During the spring and summer of 2020, the Chicago White Sox ICYB program will offer free youth baseball. Clinics are great to engage the youth ball players in your community!

  • The clinics provide quality hands-on instruction for boys and girls ages 9-12
  • No registration is required to participate in a clinic
  • The White Sox provide safe, youth-friendly, equipment - participants bring their own gloves

There are no dates set for 2020. Please check back later.
