SOUTH SUBURBAN YOUTH BASEBALL LEAGUE

 

Welcome to Blue Island Park District youth baseball!  We’ve partnered with the Chicago White Sox RBI program and White Sox Aces to offer a comprehensive, 5-level baseball league with talent ranging from beginners to players transiting to high school.

 

The Chicago White Sox RBI program, in affiliation with Major League Baseball’s Reviving Baseball in Chicagoland (RBI) and the Blue Island Park District, is a youth outreach program intended to motivate children during Spring/Summer with fundamentals learned through baseball.  

Description

We’ve partnered with surrounding towns (Maywood, Bellwood, Broadview, Matteson, Melrose Park, Worth, Midlothian, Blue Island, Dolton) to create two divisions competing for an overall league champion. A volunteer head coach will provide instruction for each team on baseball fundamentals in a positive and fun environment. Each team will host home games. Practices will begin the week of April 3 at the coaches’ discretion. Registration deadline March 18. Individual registration includes a 16 game regular season, playoff games, a White Sox jersey and hat, and an All star game
