OHYSA has been a vital and growing part of the Southwest Austin community since 1967, and even earlier when it was simply a dream to a group of determined volunteers.  In 1963 the Oak Hill Optimist Club purchased a lot off of Highway 290 and over the course of a year, through mostly volunteer labor, built a house. That house was placed on the market and the proceeds of its sale were used to fund the purchase of what would eventually become the 16 acre OHYSA complex. By 1964, the first fields were being developed, with a clubhouse and other facilities built to serve the players and their families.

In 1967, the complex opened and has been operating through Spring, Summer and Fall seasons since. In addition to developing athletic skills in players age 3 to 18, OHYSA is committed to imparting life lessons such as teamwork, preparedness, self-reliance, and accepting outcomes with grace. Many of our youth remain active when not playing by participating in umpire, grounds crew, facilities upkeep, and concession worker programs and activities.

Each year thousands of player, parents, spectators and fans of baseball and softball visit our complex to play, manage, officiate, volunteer or just to catch a game. We invite you to to come out and be one of them!
