    Welcome to the Lake Zurich Baseball and Softball Association

    Lake Zurich Baseball & Softball Association provides quality baseball and fast--pitch 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.

    The 2021 spring practice season is underway and only about 2 more weeks until opening day!

    Do you know a teenager who would be interested in an outdoor spring/ early summer job?  Being a member of our Blue Crew (umpires) might be a great option to gain leadership skills while earning a few dollars for the summer.   We recently extended the age limit so that umpire candidates now have to be 14 by the end of the year (14 by 12/31/21)  See the registration link below.

    2021 Training

    Umpire Training will be consist of an introductory meeting via Zoom, followed up with on-field training.  Dates will be forthcoming.  Games will begin 1st week in May 2021

    Similar to our 2020 season,  we will be implementing social distancing measures for everyone's safety.  Umpires will be calling games from behind the pitcher's mound rather than from behind the plate to maintain physical distance.
