AYRA Athletics Travel Baseball


Travel Vision


The AYRA Athletics Travel Baseball Program is run as a developmental program designed to provide advanced skilled instruction and elevated competition for those players possessing exceptional ability, positive team orientation, motivation to learn and the capability to make a significant commitment to the Travel Baseball Program. The travel program allows kids the opportunity to play competitive baseball at a higher level to commensurate with their abilities and within the limits of their love for the game. AYRA currently participates in the Mid-Atlantic Baseball Association (MABA) which travels to fields within and around the Howard County area.

We have a great community of kids, convenient fields and experience to help a young team get started and become successful.  Travel teams are formed when a travel team manager has been identified for an age group. Apply to become a Travel Team Manager: Travel Manager Application or contact Bob Kula ([email protected]) with any questions.

We would love to hear from you if you share our vision!
