Welcome To New Orleans Youth Academy

The New Orleans Youth Academy's mission is to provide inner city youth with free, year-round, top quality baseball and softball instruction, education assistance, and career path development. Here at the New Orleans Youth Academy we strive to fulfill that mission as we provide life skills and baseball instruction to over 5500 inner city youth. The biggest thing for us is that academics and athletics go hand in hand and it is our primary goal to make sure the right balance is met.

The New Orleans Major League Baseball Youth Academy opened in 2012 and is located at 6403 Press Dr. N.O. LA, 70126, better known as Wesley Barrow Stadium. It is a 650 seat baseball stadium nestled in the Pontchartrain Park neighborhood in Gentilly area of New Orleans. The stadium includes a 200-square-foot climate-controlled press box, while the baseball field features professional-sized artificial turf with a clay pitcher's mound and two fenced bullpens. The facility also includes an artificial turf softball field, a three-lane outdoor batting practice cage and a two-lane indoor batting practice building.
