2012 Lakeside Legends Tryouts

Tryout for the 15U, 16U & 17U Lakeside Legends Tournament Teams

The Legends has quickly evolved into an AAA amateur Illinois baseball program. Starting in 2010 the first Legends team (15U) took 3rd place in the MCYSA/USSSA’s Premier 15U International World Series. And that was with a 10-4 win over a very well regarded Puerto Rican team! This year’s 16U (previous 15U) had another successful season finishing high in the DSP world series. The early success has brought players from Grayslake, Warren, Lake Forest, Waukegan, Grant, Bradford, St. Joes, Christian Life Hs, Antioch, Highland Park, Carmel and others to tryout and play for the legends. This past season there were two 15U teams and one 16U.We expect a similar turnout for 2012.

Each Legends team will play in 6 elite tournaments in 2012 with at least one out of town(overnight).

Winter workouts will start in mid November and end just before high school ball begins. The Legends program is meant to add to players experience not distract form their high school team. Workouts will be intense, working on proper hitting mechanics, preparing their physical strengths to play ball at the highest level. Our coaches will be constantly evaluation their players to address any challenges he might have in order to improve. This program is meant for players who are willing to put in the necessary work to continue their baseball careers to the next level=COLLEGE.

A player must be 15 or 16 years old or younger as of April 30, 2012 depending on the team tryout. They can reside within the Chicagoland metropolitan area including southern Wisconsin.
