Few things connect a community more than cheering kids on at the baseball field.

For the Orange Youth Baseball Organization, giving families a place to call their home field is a dream soon to come true. In a new partnership, Orange Baseball will construct its home fields and facility on the property of Noblesville Naz Church, located at 1399 Greenfield Ave. 

Orange Youth Baseball hosted a groundbreaking ceremony at Noble Naz Church in Noblesville Friday. The organization’s two youth baseball fields, team dugouts and fan bleachers will be constructed on the church’s existing grounds. 

The property was once vetted and zoned as a potential youth recreation space by Noblesville Parks and Recreation. The due diligence conducted by Noblesville Parks has helped empower Orange Baseball and Noble Naz to build upon the knowledge gathered to now activate this space to serve the youth baseball community. 

Fishers-based RQAW is providing the design concepts and rendering for the future baseball fields. As a not-for-profit organization, Orange will be actively seeking partner sponsors and donors to reach the anticipated $100k in hard costs to construct the fields. 

“We are so fortunate to have companies that are already contributing in-kind product and services to help us manage and minimize expenses,” said Steve Burzynski, founder and president of Orange Youth Baseball. “The community support and collaboration we continue to receive is awesome. Giving these kids the place to keep loving this game while learning the spirit of sportsmanship is truly what this is about.” 

Orange Baseball President, Steve Burzynki and Treasurer Shannon McVey will be joined by Noblesville Naz Lead Pastor Jesse Garner and board members Nate Sutake, Ann Earl, Sandy Barack, Leon Daughtery, and Charlie Stevens. Youth teams and their families will attend and host a pitch-in to celebrate. 

About Orange Youth Baseball

Orange Youth Baseball is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to providing an avenue for families to participate in competitive travel baseball with less of a time and financial commitment compared to other high-end and year-round full-time travel baseball programs. One of the key differentiators is a balanced approach keeping family first with an emphasis on practice, fundamentals, and character. This also gives families the freedom to play other seasonal sports without intrusive off-season commitments and overlap of schedules. Orange Youth Baseball is made up of 12 teams, ages 8U to 12U.
