Good evening everyone I would like to announce and remind everyone that Lakewood's Club Team try outs 2nd round will be held Sunday April 13th at 5pm at Evans Park. The Club Teams are Elite Teams that compete against the other youth leagues in Licking County. Games are played on Sundays during the regular season beginning at 2pm. Lakewood Little League and myself are working very hard to provide our community and Licking County an alternative to having to go to Travel Baseball and paying thousands of dollars to get the coaching and higher level competition that parents seek when they make that decision. Our alternative provides the individualized skills and higher competition of like travel baseball for a fee of less than $75. We have to charge an additional fee since it has to be separate to our Little League Charter, so provide liability insurance for the players, a jersey for the players and pay umpires for the games we host at Lakewood. Any and all profits from concessions or otherwise from the Lakewood Club Team go directly to The Lakewood Little League Operating Account. I am working to reduce the time dedication on Sundays from a double header to (1) 9 inning game. I realize that baseball season is a grind and a 3, 4, 5, and sometimes for some of us a 6 or 7 day a week passion. We only do this because our kids truly love it and desire this much work and fun. These are the things that separate us from every other program in the State of Ohio, the (3) State Baseball Titles and (3) State Softball titles verify that. These Club Teams build relationships that will last way beyond High School. In recent years Lakewood Little League has built a reputation as one of the very best programs in Ohio District 5 and in the State of Ohio for that matter. In our second year of Little League competition Lakewood's 10u team was Ohio District 5 Champs and finished 5th in the State of Ohio at the State Tournament in Cleveland. That same year Lakewood's 12u team was a Ohio District 5 semifinalist. Last year the 12u team finished as Ohio District 5 runner-up coming one game short of the State Tournament in Ashtabula. Keep in mind that making the club team does not guarantee a spot on our tournament (all star) teams, but the club teams need to be rostered by all star level players. So if you feel your child meets these requirements and desires this level of play and competition I would encourage you to attend Sunday. The better the turn out the higher the level of talent to choose from, this aspect is difficult, but a good problem to have. I know our league is filled with quality ballplayers and I would love to see them all reach their full potential.
