Program overview

The Hayner Academy Barnstormers is the travel baseball program of the Hayner Brothers Baseball Academy. The Barnstormers program was established in 2000. For six years we operated as a fall season only travel program fielding teams at the 13u, 14u, 15u, 16u and 18u levels. In 2014, we re-established the Barnstormers as an 18u summer travel program giving players the opportunity to play and train in the fall, winter and summer. In six years, we have grown our program slowly and strategically to offer a quality experience for the players and families in our program. For 2019-2020 season, our plan is to offer four teams for players in the class of 2024, 2023, 2022, 2021 and 2020. Tryouts are scheduled for August 13 and 15, 2019.

We have been fortunate over the years to attract great players and families. We are proud of what our players and teams have accomplished. As our players pursue their baseball goals, we strive to help in the process and provide quality opportunities. Although we attend some of the best showcase tournaments in our region (Diamond Nation Super 17, Boston Invitational, Boston Open by Prospect Select, Perfect Game, PBR, Firecracker and Sports Zone Invitational) we do not bill our teams as “showcase” teams. We want a team of players that strive to be the best they can both collectively and individually. We build our teams position by position and select players and families that fit into our team environment. We look for players that have the desire, tools and skill to play college baseball. Our mission is to play good, team baseball. Within that framework we help players continue to develop their baseball profile and thus improve their college opportunities. We want to build an atmosphere and culture that is conducive to fun, skill development and competitiveness. Our players typically come from many different high schools within 1.5 hours of our base of operations in Halfmoon. Players and families are committed to our program and it is our aim to provide the best possible travel baseball experience for each family.

Since 2014, 49 of our players have gone on to play college baseball and two are currently playing professional baseball. Click here for list. In six years, our teams have won numerous tournaments. Most recently, our 2019 - 17u team went 6-0 to capture the Firecracker Battle of the Border Tournament and our 2019 13u team captured the ENYTB Summer Blast Championship. Our 2018 – 18u team achieved a record of 26-5-1 and won three tournaments including the 50 team Boston Open finishing a perfect 7-0.
