The Lakewood Rec. Dept operates our in house recreation league baseball program. Teams are formed from Lakewood residents and play in Rookie (Staff pitch), Minors (9-10 kid pitch) and Majors (11-12). More information and registration information here.
The LCBA operates travel baseball teams comprised of residents of Lakewood, Ohio. We play in the Cuyahoga Valley Baseball Association League and Puritas Baseball League. Annual tryouts are open in August for teams for the following year. Ages 6 through 18 years are encouraged to tryout. One or two teams for each age group from 8U - 14U are formed based on assessments from annual tryouts. Travel teams play a regular season and will enter two or more tournaments depending on interest. Tryouts for the 2018 season will be in late August.
Premier League Baseball
Premier teams are formed when enough players within an age group demonstrate a higher level of skill and are interested in more challenging competition. Premier teams play in the extensions of the Diamond League, considered by many to be the premier travel program in Ohio. Teams compete from the Diamond level to the Prospect and New Prospect level. Teams are comprised of players from many different cities with an emphasis on exposure to high level competition.
Independent teams made of players from Lakewood and nearby communities are formed as needed and registered in regional fall leagues such as Puritas, Brunswick or North Ridgeville. Fall leagues give players an opportunity to extend their season and continue to develop in a competitive environment.
Player Development Sessions
LCBA Staff provides one-on-one personal coaching for registered players. Hitting, Fielding, Pitching, and Catching sessions can be scheduled as needed. Holiday Camps are also done every year during Winter Break by the High School staff and players to deepen ties in the LCBA community and further achievement for all teams.
