-The MANDATORY baseball club "meet & greet" will be held Thursday, September 17th in the Kahler Middle School gym from 7:30-9pm.  Players and parents should plan to arrive by 7:15pm and pay the $95 club fee.  Please make $95 checks payable to: Lake Central baseball club.  The club meeting will start at 7:30, then the teams will have individual meetings at 8pm.  

-The high school baseball team golf outing fundraiser will be held Saturday, October17th, at the Lincoln Oaks golf course in Crete.  This golf outing raises money for the high school baseball program by its booster club called the Stadium Club.  Below I have attached a link to the entry form.  It would be great if a couple couple foursomes could come from the AAU baseball club.  I have already formed a foursome with some dads from my 15U team from last season.  This is a good way to get to know some of the coaches and other parents in the program, it should be fun.  Next year at this time, you will all be asked to get involved with the Stadium club.  This is a good way to find out what it's all about.

-Thank you to all kids and parents who came to tryouts for our 4th season.  This tryout was the best we've had, with over 90 boys trying out for the 11U, 12U, 13U & 14U teams.  We are very excited to expand the program this year to include new 11U and 12U teams.  This years selection process was also the toughest we've had yet, as the caliber of players made the roster selections very hard.  Our first 3 seasons were a huge success and we look to build on that momentum.  We look forward to carrying that momentum into a productive 2010 campaign.  Teams will again compete in the NIML "elite" division, which will provide the most challenging competition possible. We are looking forward to fielding elite teams for many years to come.  All people involved, believe our program will be the premier "feeder" program in the state of Indiana.  Our teams are made up of boys who live in our school district, and attend schools that feed into the Lake Central high school.  Hopefully this program will result in many state championships for Lake Central high school in future years.
