The Liberty Hill Youth League was established in 1953 and continues to thrive still to this day!  We are a non-profit, 100% volunteer run organization that has spent the years developing the youth of the Liberty Hill community in baseball and softball.

Benefits of Youth Sports in Your Community

Playing youth baseball in a community league isn't simply a benefit to the individual player, it is a building block in building active, healthy, community focused individuals for the future and building strong, thriving communities for all. 

Did you know the impact of youth sports in communities has been heavily researched? 

  • Active kids do better in life overall.
  • Active communities are healthier.
  • Sports activity help children develop and improve cognitive skills.
  • Youth sports communities directly impact the success of the business community around them.
