“Big thanks to everyone at The Yard for making my daughter’s birthday party a success. You made all of us feel so welcome and the activities you planned kept the kids moving and entertained, regardless of their baseball experience. Everyone had a blast!”

“Kevin had the “best birthday ever” at The Yard! The Yard’s staff did a great job keeping all 20 of the 9-year-old kids engaged – with games and competitions that were fun for all levels, and background music to keep the kids moving. The facility is great – spread out so the the kids could be split into groups, and room for a banquet style meal/cake – we brought chicken wings in for dinner. Overall a great experience!”
– E.H. Wilmette
“Thank you so much for a WONDERFUL party experience! The two coaches you had there were great with the kids. They learned a lot and had fun! Dylan couldn’t stop talking about how great his party was and his Ernie Banks baseball card. I really can’t thank you enough!!”

“Thank you for a really great birthday party this past Saturday! Josh said this was his favorite by far. The kids were all engaged and had a great time. Some had never played baseball before. Coaches Ryan, Alex and James we great with the kids. Thanks again for a great party!”
