Lou Gehrig is proud to announce our 8U travel baseball tryouts. This may be new to many of our families with young kids at Lou Gehrig. The 8U travel program allows the boys to compete at a higher level, in local tournaments representing Lou Gehrig. It is truly a great way to develop and allow your young ball player a chance to gain invaluable experience. 

We are currently seeking 8U travel baseball players born between May 1, 2011 - April 30, 2012.  Playing travel baseball is a big commitment. A rough outline of expectations includes:

1-2 practices in late afternoon or early evening at the LG complex.

1-2 games a week depending on practice and tournament schedule

2-3 Tournaments, mid July - early August.

Fee of $250-$300, to cover uniforms, insurance fields, umpires, and tournaments.

12 players on a team, 2-3 teams pending on interest and talent.

Top two teams (RED and BLUE) will be balanced, if there are enough for a 3rd team (WHITE).

Travel committee will run the tryout process, with 3 stations to evaluate the players, hitting, fielding, motor skills.

Any 8U Lou Gehrig player can tryout.  Please preregister by emailing me at kvs70@roadrunner.com.  Please include PLAYERS NAME, DATE OF BIRTH, and their 2019 house level team/ coach.

*****On the day of the tryout please bring an ORIGINAL or CERTIFIED COPY of the players birth certificate or PASSPORT.  No photocopies will be accepted as proof.  All players should wear their uniforms complete with hat, jersey, pants, socks,, personal protection, baseball mitt, bat, helmet etc.  

Lastly, due to no house season, the COVID - 19 pandemic, and the limited amount of play, we will be conducting a clinic on July 6 and 7 from 4:00-6:00 pm at the Lou Gehrig complex. Please check-in at the concession stand and complete a mandatory waiver of liability, prior to participating.  Please attend with the appropriate attire and equipment. Attending the clinic is not required to attend the tryout. 

2020 Fall Registration

Hello Lou Gehrig Families,

We hope this letter finds you well. As we have navigated this unprecedented pandemic, we have all had to make some very hard decisions that have kept us from playing baseball and softball and watching our children play the game they love. On behalf of the Lou Gehrig Board of Directors, we thank all of our families for their patience, understanding and commitment to Lou Gehrig.

We are excited to announce that we are going to have a House Season called the “Dog Days of Summer” Baseball and Softball Season!

Here are the details for the “Dog Days of Summer” season barring any setbacks and IF we are cleared to play in Phase 4 by the appropriate authorities:

● Cost for the season will be $100. (There will be no team or volunteer fee.)
● Each family will need to have a signed waiver for each player.
● The season will begin in August and play through September.
● 1-2 games scheduled per week.
● August games will be played mostly on weeknights.
● September games will be on weeknights and weekends.
● Divisions will be made for Boys and Girls ages 5-12.

We are just as excited as you are with this announcement and look forward to seeing all of our athletes and families at Lou Gehrig this summer and fall. The safety and well-being of all our participants, families, and friends is always paramount and, with our current situation, is more important than ever. Again, the “Dog Days of Summer” season will only occur IF we are cleared to play by the Department of Health and the restrictions in place still allow us to play the game we love.

We are all in this together. We are Lou Gehrig Youth Baseball and Softball.

Thank you again for your patience, dedication, and understanding.

The 14U Lasers team volunteered their time to help at St Luke’s in February. The team and parents helped prepare and serve food along with other tasks St Luke’s needed done. It was a very rewarding feeling helping those less fortunate.
