It is truly a privilege to play with so many teams from US and also other international teams.The fields are always well maintained, the umpires are very professional, the staff extremely helpful and the general organization is impeccable. In our case, this gratitude goes far beyond the games, since the homestay program provides an incredible opportunity for our boys. It's certainly a huge cultural experience that creates memories and friends for life."

Announcements

The Japan Little Senior Baseball Association selects one team from 25,000 junior high school students to play at the MCYSA 15U Summer International Championships each year. The JLSBA is making plans to attend Session #1 in 2021.

Brazil’s Beisbol.org is organizing teams at 15U and 13U for both sessions in 2021.

The Maceteros from Puerto Rico are planning to bring 14U and 15U teams this coming summer. The Maceteros won their first MCYSA tournament in 1998 (photo above).

The McHenry County Youth Sports Association (MCYSA) has been hosting the Summer International Championships since 1993. We are a community-based volunteer not-for-profit organization that takes great pride in hosting this event each year. Participation by high caliber international clubs provides a unique opportunity for participating teams to play world-class baseball and while enjoying a special cultural experience. Join us! We look forward to sharing time enjoying the game we love.
