Tyro League

Our Tyro League is designed for 1st and 2nd grade boys who have an interest in playing baseball.  It is a "coach pitch" league wherein each team selects an adult to pitch overhand to their own team, with the opposing team playing the field.  It is designed to teach the boys the elements of baseball and covers such topics as fielding positions, batting order, base running and fielding.

The Tyro League is a non-competitive league designed for 1st and 2nd grade boys and girls who have an interest in playing baseball. This league is intended to teach the basic elements of baseball and covers such topics as fielding positions, batting order, base running and fielding.  It is a "coach pitch" league wherein each team selects an adult to pitch overhand to their own team, with the opposing team playing the field.  The Tyro League uses a "safety ball" to minimize the chance of injury.
 
The Tyro League is split into two divisions by grade, 1st grade and 2nd grade.  Players are placed on a team by the league President, who will make every effort to group players by school, neighborhood, or friend requests.  Due to the large number of players at this level, requests to pair players is not guaranteed.  The number of teams in the league will vary based on the number of players that register each year, though typically ranges from 5 to 10 teams per division.  
 
The baseball season begins with practices in early April and then 16 games from late April through June.  There are 2 games per week, one during the week in the evening and the other game on Saturday.  At the end of the season, all teams compete in the "LZBSA World Series Tournament", which takes place over the course of two Sundays in Lake Zurich.  
 
The league also includes an "All Star" team, comprised of selected 2nd graders, which plays in local tournaments during the month of July.
