Youth baseball is offered for boys in grades 1-8. The older 5/6 and 7/8th age groups will have two options that are explained below (Tryouts vs. Non-Tryout). Grades 1/2 is coach pitch, Grades 3/4, 5/6 and 7/8 is kid pitch. We will have competitive tryout teams in the 5/6th and 7/8th grades that play in the JLS League, there are no requests for these two teams. Our recreation division teams play in the Suburban Baseball League.
