Welcome to the Southern Illinois Select Baseball League (SISBL). I want to take this opportunity to thank all the coaches, managers, players, and parents for their support in the past. Every new season brings new faces and challenges. 2014 looks to be bigger and better with coaches and managers constantly looking for the league that would be the best fit for their team.
With the support of the Freeburg Park District, constant improvements to the park have occurred over the past 5 years. Next season will be the same.
We take pride in making everyone’s visit to the park an enjoyable experience. With SISBL, we strive for the following:
- Kid safety
- Kids being able to learn and enjoy the game of baseball in a fun and relaxed environment
The league itself has become one of the best in accommodating teams of all playing abilities. Being able to run 2 divisions in age groups 8u through 14U has set the standard for all leagues. I consider the SISBL umpire group as the best around. The SISBL umpires strive to make the park a fun and relaxed place for kids to play and parents to enjoy the game of baseball. Constant communication between SISBL umpires and myself helps make the park a place where everyone wants to play. By participating with the SISBL coaches are able to just coach their team and not be concerned with field setup, game balls, or scheduling umpires. With SISBL this is all included with your season which takes pressure off of the coaches and makes their summer more enjoyable.
The SISBL is also known for producing some of the top teams in the state of Illinois.
In 2014, SISBL will be running league games mainly at the Freeburg Sports Complex and using the O’Fallon Family Sports Complex and Waterloo Jaycees Complex as overflow parks. We will also be hosting 5 Tournaments in various age groups in 2014.
I enjoy being at the park and communicating with everyone that is a part of the SISBL experience. Feel free to talk with me, call me, or email me at any time. I am willing to talk and listen to whatever needs to be discussed and I will always strive to improve and make your SISBL experience enjoyable.
