Introduction to Baseball/Softball 

Parent and Tot T-Ball  – Boys & Girls Ages 3-5
Come sing “Take Me Out to the Ball Game” and take parent/player photos to commemorate the experience. This class is an exciting introduction to baseball/softball that will provide your child with a better knowledge of base running, catching, throwing, field position, and hitting off a tee. Games are played at Legends Ballpark at West Ridge Park. No scores are kept and no outs are counted. Parent (or adult guardian) and the player will receive a team jersey. Only one child per adult may participate. (7 weeks)
For more information, contact Mike Divincenzo at 847-579-3198 or

Sluggers Baseball – Boys and Girls Pre K & K 

Join us for an unforgettable summer! Boys and girls will play on appropriately-sized fields designed to accommodate simultaneous “off the tee” or “coach pitch” baseball games. Legends Ballpark features four adjacent fields with home run fences, bleachers, and PA systems. Practices or games will be 45 minutes to an hour in the time window listed below. A Sluggers t-shirt and MLB cap is included with each registration. Players will start the season hitting off the tee and move to coach pitch halfway through the season. Players will also have the opportunity to walk in the July 4th parade. Parents are encouraged to become volunteer coaches.
