The OYO travel baseball program was established as a self-sufficient affiliate to give kids a more competitive option. While OYO provides the infrastructure (field space, organization affiliation, etc.) to allow these teams to be formed and represent OYO around the city and state, each team is self-funded through team registration fees, sponsorships, and fundraising activities. The OYO’s travel program was launched in 2005 and typically fields up to 14 full-time and rec-travel baseball teams.
