Lemont Lightning Travel


The Lemont Lightning consists of competitive part-time and full-time travel baseball and softball teams for boys and girls of the Lemont Baseball and Softball Club (LBSC) playing at ages 8 through 16 for boys and 9 through 14 for girls competing against teams from the geographic Chicagoland area. Lemont Lightning is a division within the LBSC and was formed to provide LBSC players the opportunity to experience travel ball.

Part-time travel players must remain a registered member of LBSC in-house league and actively participate with his/her regular-season LBSC team. Lightning games will be played within the Chicagoland Sunday Baseball Leagues on Sundays and Wednesdays. It is expected that the players will compete in approximately 15 Lightning and 15 LBSC in-house games. Additionally, these teams may participate in local tournaments through July.

Full-time travel players must remain a registered member of LBSC and to have played within the LBSC organization for at least two (2) years in the past or have played in the 2014 season. All games and tournaments should remain in the Chicagoland region and teams will be competing in an independent league such as the West Suburban Baseball League. The season shall consist of approximately 25 games with additional tournaments through the end of July. Players on the Full time Lemont Lightning Travel team cannot participate on any LBSC All Star teams.

Our mission is to train young baseball and softball players ages 8–14 in a safe, yet challenging part-time and full-time travel program, preparing them for a chance to compete at the high school level.
