All of SLYB regular season games are played at Shillito Park Baseball Fields.

Our Cal Ripken Baseball League is comprised of Major, Minor, Rookie and T-ball as follows (Ages as of April 30, 2022) Wee- ball (Ages as of August 31, 2022)


MAJOR LEAGUE:  The most experienced level of Cal Ripken Baseball. For 9-12 year old players, this division is played under Official Cal Ripken Baseball Rules, but implements some special rules as necessary for the development and welfare of the young age group.  The six-inning game is played on a 70-foot diamond with a pitching distance of 50 feet.  Placement on a Major team is through a tryout and player draft.   Registration Fee: $225.00

MINOR LEAGUE:  This division, for 9-12 year old players, is designed to assist players with the continued development and refining of their fundamental skills, while they begin to understand game strategy.  In general, there will be less games and practices than Majors in this division.  Registration Fee: $200.00

ROOKIE LEAGUE: This division, for 7 and 8 year old players, continues teaching the fundamentals of the game and building player confidence.  It is at this level that the players are introduced to the “live” pitch.  This league’s games consist of six innings of Coach Pitch. Registration Fee: $165.00

T-BALL LEAGUES:  This program is for 4, 5, and 6 year olds, focusing on teaching the fundamentals of hitting and fielding. All batters will hit from a batting tee which is adjusted to a height that allows the batter to swing level.  Adult coaches are stationed beyond the infielders in order to provide instruction to all defensive players. The primary goal is to begin to instruct young players in the fundamentals of baseball in a supportive team environment.  Registration Fee: $135.00
