By teaching, encouraging, and supporting sound fundamentals through good coaching; and

By ensuring that all youth have a safe, fun, yet challenging opportunity to enjoy the game.

EBSL Virtual Spring Training

Virtual Spring Training Launch

Hello EBSL Families & Friends!

First and most importantly, we hope you and your families are safe and healthy during this unprecedented global situation.

Several of you have asked for an update on the spring baseball/softball season. At this point, our position has not changed - all options for a spring season are still on the table. We will continue to take our guidance from the government, D205 and the IHSA regarding spring sports. Please follow our website, Facebook page and Twitter feed to keep up to date.

EBSL continues to be a community-focused organization here in Elmhurst. Normally at this time of year, we would be preparing to provide a safe, fun and challenging baseball/softball experience for our youth. Of course youth sports is not currently anyone’s priority, so we are taking this time to encourage our EBSL family to support local Elmhurst businesses. Please follow us on social media to participate.

To help everyone prepare for the upcoming season (fingers crossed!) on your own, we are happy to announce the launch of EBSL Virtual Spring Training. Our Virtual Spring Training site offers a collection of resources, videos, drills, and more created/curated by the EBSL team. Please visit the site and encourage your kids to get out in the backyard and work on their skills.

Please contact us at with any questions or comments.
