2020 Season Preview
Founded in November 2018, the Eastburgh Avengers Baseball Club is a non-profit AAU baseball program based in Munhall, PA. We began programming in early 2019 in an 1,800-square foot indoor training facility located inside Community Forge in Wilkinsburg (the former Johnston Elementary School building). In November of 2019, we moved and began operation of a 2,200-square foot indoor batting cage located at 510 E. 10th Ave., Munhall, PA 15210, inside the Carnegie Library of Homestead.
Eastburgh was formed as a response to the costly participation fees, stressful time demands on families and irreparable harm to community baseball that is associated with elite travel youth baseball. The Avengers aim to provide an elite baseball program that is accessible to players from all backgrounds, friendly to families with busy schedules and does not complete with community baseball programs. We are committed to preserving America’s great pastime by connecting talented players to elite youth baseball programming, exposing young baseball players to quality training programs and strengthening our local community baseball associations.
Mission: Provide youth of all backgrounds from across the Pittsburgh area a family friendly and affordable travel baseball experience.
Strategy: Develop highly skilled youth baseball players through individual training, group instruction and competitive play against regional travel teams.
Vision: Establish Western PA’s only affordable, inclusive and diverse elite youth baseball program.
Join our effort to re-connect Pittsburgh area youth of all backgrounds to America's pastime.

The Eastburgh Avengers compete at the 7U, 8U, 9U, 10U and 12U levels in the Pittsburgh Travel Baseball League (PTBL) We coordinate with local Little League associations to avoid scheduling conflicts with house league games. We discourage our players from leaving their neighborhood Little Leagues to play with us exclusively. Teams are coached by current college/high school players, parents and volunteers. Preseason Workouts begin the week of 1/13/2020 through mid-April:
Every Saturday at 11am we invite youth ages 6-12 of all skill levels from the Steel Valley area and neighboring communities to our free baseball clinic. The clinic will be facilitated by Eastburgh staff and focus on hitting, fielding and pitching fundamentals.
