Welcome to Green Bay East Side Youth Baseball. Our baseball league provides young players, age 4-12, with the opportunity to learn the game. We offer T-Ball (4-6), Bambino machine pitch (7-8), Minors kid pitch (9-10) and Majors kid pitch (11-12) for our spring season. In fall, we offer a fall ball season for Bambino, Minors and Majors. GBESYB is also home to the Green Bay Sluggers travel team.
The league provides each player with a shirt and hat. Players should have a glove and bat. For the safety of our players, bats should have a USA stamp on the handle as shown below. Additional optional items your player may want include baseball pants, cleats, belt, bat bag and baseball socks.
Jack Baldschun, a Major League Baseball pitcher, left not only an impression on the field but off the field. Jack was born and raised in Greenville, Ohio, and attended Miami University, still in Ohio. Jack was originally signed by the Washington Senators; however, was later acquired by Cincinatti, where he spent time with their Class C affiliate in Wausau, Wisconsin. Jack also spent time in Philadelphia and San Diego. During Jack's tenure in the Major League, he had a 48-41 record with 60 saves, 555 strikeouts, and a 3.69 ERA. After Jack retired, he settled down in Green Bay, Wisconsin.
Jack passed away on June 6, 2023. In Jack's honor, his family made a donation to our League. We would like to thank Jack's family for their donation to the Green Bay Eastside Youth Baseball League.

If you know of any certified umpires or young high schoolers that are looking to earn some extra money, please send them our way. We are in need of umpires for the upcoming spring/summer season.
If you are a high school student and interested but worried because you have no prior umping experience, that is okay! All that is needed is a basic understanding of baseball and we will teach you the rest.
We are in immediate need to fill an open position on the league board: Vice President, Director of Fundraising, and Director of Umpires.
Training is available for all positions. Those interested or with questions should contact Ed Pichette.
