Winterball is one of RYBA main fund raisers. The money's raised through Winterball are used by RYBA to help fund field up keep, Umpires, Shirts, Hats, Baseballs, Facilities and Concessions. With this in mind, scholarships are only offered for House and Traveling Leagues, we do not offer scholarships into Winterball.
