Our fundraising program has enhanced the experience for community participants for many years. BYBS is a not-for-profit organization and our fundraising supports field and facility development, enhancement, and annual maintenance efforts, while also supporting a league scholarship program.
Every season, BYB&S pays for field use and/or facility maintenance while also focusing on long-term projects. These league contributions benefit not only current BYB&S participants, but also all BHS baseball and softball players.
Some of the recent projects are highlighted with the photographs on this page.
BYB&S also has a number of community partners including School District 220. Not only is BYB&S the feeder program for Barrington High School, we also have partnered in facility creation and development for several decades.
A current priority for our fundraising effort is a $400,000 contribution from BYB&S to Barrington School District 220 as part of a master plan of facility projects that includes the Fields of Dreams.
The phase two project for Fields of Dreams is part of a district wide program known as Blueprint 220.
Blueprint 220 is part of the successful March 2020 referendum that will address many field related projects including improved field surfaces, parking, electrical system, walkway pavement work, and many other priorities.
The online Fundraising Fee is the process for our annual discount card sales. Coaches will distribute three fundraising cards to each player’s family at the start of the season. Families can then sell these individual $20 cards to recoup the fundraising fee, use the cards themselves, or give them away.
Each player has a $60 fundraising fee (and will receive three fundraising cards to recoup this total) but there is a Family Maximum for this fundraising fee of $120 for families with multiple players in the program. This will be reflected on the shopping cart page as long as you register all your children at the same time (Select Register Another Player on the Review page)
Every registered player is part of the Raffle Pool and we will announce winners of prizes throughout the year.
We appreciate your participation and support of our fundraising efforts.

BYB&S partnered with Barrington 220 for this regrading work at six fields in 2020.
The focus of our 2020 fundraising has been a regrading project that involves works on all four Fields of Dreams diamonds, the Barrington High School varsity field, and the field at Station Middle School. Fields have been laser graded to address erosion challenges.
Many loads of new material have created a safer playing surface.
The 'lip' transition area between the infield dirt and outfield grass has been leveled and replace with new sod. The fields look great!
BYBS paid for new outfield windscreens at FOD
