    THANK YOU TO SPONSORS OF GLENVIEW YOUTH BASEBALL

    Glenview Youth Baseball thanks all team sponsors for making the upcoming house league season possible! Your support helps keeps the cost of our program affordable.  Without your fabulous generosity we could not have a Glenview Youth Baseball League with the best baseball fields and facilities in the nation.  Last year we spent over $70,000 installing brand new batting cages and sun shades at CPW, and did major field repairs on the Westbrook fields.  We look forward to new concession facilities and to fill other requests from our baseball community.  

    If you have any questions contact David Waldherr at david.waldherr@comcast.net or 847-774-7661.

    ABOUT GLENVIEW YOUTH BASEBALL

    Welcome to Glenview Youth Baseball

    Glenview Youth Baseball has offered baseball for more than 50 years to boys and girls from kindergarten to 18 years of age. In 2014, we fielded more than 75 house league teams, more than 15 travel teams, and many fall league teams (for those who can't get enough baseball).

    More than 1000 players participated in Glenview Youth Baseball programs in 2014, which is designed to provide a positive learning experience for all of our youth. We emphasize the importance of teamwork, sportsmanship, and improving our players' and umpires' fundamental skills, and, of course, improving life skills such as winning and losing with class. But above all, participating in our program is just plain fun.

    We look forward to the 2015 season!
