Bentonville, AR….. Bentonville Youth Baseball and Bentonville Parks and Recreation are excited to announce a continued partnership in offering the Bentonville Youth Baseball Program. Bentonville Parks and Recreation will assume the administrational responsibilities of the program in 2021. This includes registration, scheduling, league organization and operation.
Moving forward, the Bentonville Youth Baseball Board will help guide the baseball program giving direction and advice to the programing staff at Bentonville Parks and Recreation. During this transition, players and parents can expect the same great service, organization, and level of play that they have become accustomed to.
For over 65 years, Bentonville Youth Baseball has shaped the lives of countless young men and women through sport. It is an honor to partner with an organization that has such a storied legacy within our community. In 1954, a semi-pro baseball team, The Bentonville Merchants, realized that in order to continue gaining community support for the team, they needed to create a program that would facilitate and support young boys’ participation in baseball. The Bentonville Youth Baseball League was created out of this vision. The program, which began with four teams, has grown to include over 150 teams and 1600 players.
Registration for the 2021 Spring Season will open on Friday, January 1st at www.playbentonville.com.
