NY Gothams Program Info
The NY Gothams youth baseball program was founded by Michael Orbison and Geoff Rich and fielded its first team in 2000 with the goal of providing talented New York City baseball players an affordable opportunity to improve their skills, extend their sportsmanship and compete at the highest levels of play. The NY Gothams places a large emphasis on helping players make the connections and receive the exposure that can assist them in gaining entry to quality New York high schools and colleges, and boasts many alumni who are now or have played college ball, with scholarships often provided.
In a reflection of the NY Gothams’ belief that our players should pursue their education with the same intensity they do sports, the NY Gothams were excited to add an educational component to the program, instituting study hall as part of the workouts. In 2010, the organization further strengthened its commitment to shaping student athletes by offering free SAT prep classes to interested players.
Our players come from a wide variety of socio-economic and ethnic backgrounds and represent the broad diversity of the City itself. The NY Gothams has always stressed community outreach and since its inception has offered scholarships to players in financial need. MLB recognized the organizations efforts with a $10,000 grant through its Baseball Tomorrow fund. The NY Gothams extended that goal internationally when it organized a collection of uniforms and equipment for Homerun Hopefuls, a charitable organization that distributes its collections to children in need in the Dominican Republic.
