is a non-profit athletic organization established in the summer of 2000. Founder Dr. Dwayne Aboud initiated this venture to fill a void he felt in his community — to rekindle the spirit of youth baseball in El Paso.
"Baseball has been an El Paso tradition since the organization of our first professional team in 1892. Unfortunately support for baseball in El Paso has dwindled and the city’s facilities are substandard at best. -Dr. Aboud
Of course, the health benefits of a youth baseball and softball league did not pass unnoticed by Dr. Aboud, who had previously noted that childhood obesity and diabetes rates in El Paso youth were on the rise at a rate exceeding the national average. The EPBYAA brings a healthy alternative to the video game and sedentary lifestyle of today’s youth, as well as providing valuable leadership experience.
Currently, we are working on the completion of a brand new, state-of-the-art outdoor baseball complex that will allow El Paso’s youth to better realize and refine its talents — and with better facilities and more developed talent will come more recognition from school recruiters and professional scouts. It’s a process that starts today and continues far into El Paso’s future.
The board members at the El Paso Border Youth Athletic Association is made up of experienced professionals passionate about our baseball, our community and the improvement of our youth.
