Travel baseball entails a greater time and cost commitment, and entails competitive matchups. Players involved have a real love for the game and an interest in learning. Teams typically hold practices during the late fall, winter and early spring before the spring season. In the spring, Skokie travel teams play in the Lake Shore Feeder Baseball League (LSFBL) against teams from surrounding communities, and may also play in tournaments. Travel players are additionally required to play on a spring house league team.
Our goal is to notify players/parents of 2017 travel rosters no later than the end of October.
