Play hard and play to win, but win or lose with class

Welcome to the Lake Zurich Baseball and Softball Association

LZBSA provides quality baseball and fastpitch softball programs for the youth of Lake Zurich, Hawthorn Woods, Kildeer, Long Grove and adjacent communities. Dedicated to providing safe and enjoyable recreation and travel programs that teach a love for the game of baseball/softball, we stress game fundamentals, sportsmanship, discipline, teamwork, and a competitive spirit, all of which assist our youth in becoming responsible and productive adults.


    OPENING DAY CELEBRATION on MAY 4

    We survived one of the toughest, harshest winters in Chicagoland history! But with the smell of fresh cut green grass and the sound of the crack of the bat (or “ping” of the bat,) spring is officially here and so is the start of the youth baseball & softball season in Lake Zurich!!! 

    • LZBSA league games start this Saturday, April 26. 
    • OPENING DAY festivities and celebration will take place the following weekend on Sunday, May 4 at Staples Park!
    • Highlights include a free hot dog and drink for players in uniform and the popular annual PITCH HIT & RUN contest.
    • Festivities run from noon to 2:30 p.m. Stop by at anytime.
    • This season's Opening Day celebration is being held in honor of Tom Kowalski, who passed away last June at the age of 52, after a tough 5 ½ year battle against multiple myeloma. Tom joined the LZBSA board for the 2006 season as Boys Tournament Director and continued to serve the 2007, 2008 and 2009 seasons as Vice Commissioner of Baseball.
