The EBSA House league is a developmental baseball league. All players are group by grade level. Play-up requests are discouraged, as the kids playing-up usually end up being the worst players on a team and having less fun than their peers. 

ROOKIE LEAGUE: PRE-K AND K

The Rookie League is a wonderful introduction to the sport for all kids. The emphasis is on fun and an introduction to some basic baseball skills. A batting T is used to emphasize the importance of learning a proper swing, with some pitching by coaches.  The league runs from April through the mid June.  All games are Saturday morning.  

PINTO LEAGUE: 1ST & 2ND GRADES
This is a non-competitive developmental league.  Emphasis is on the fundamentals of the game with children playing all the positions, including two innings of "kid-pitch" with modified rules. Innings are over when three outs are made or eight players bat.  For many children the Farm League is their entry point to baseball.  The league runs from April through the mid June.  Games are played on a weeknight and Saturdays.

MUSTANG LEAGUE: 3RD, 4TH GRADE

The Middle League is another fine entry point to the game. The Middle League plays on Saturdays, with one midweek game. Players pitch and innings are over when there are three outs or five runs are scored. Umpires work each game and the season ends with a championship tournament. Teams are formed with the objective of evenness and balance.  The league generally runs from April through the first or second weekend of June.

BRONCO LEAGUE: 5TH, 6TH GRADE

While most players in the Major League have prior baseball experience, we have seen many youngsters start the game at the Major League level if they have the desire to play and learn. Games are played on Saturdays with one game midweek. Leadoffs and base stealing become part of the game. All games are umpired. Innings end with three outs or five runs scored. Teams are formed by a draft to ensure competitiveness and balance. A championship tournament ends the season.  The league generally runs from April through the first or second weekend of June.

PONY LEAGUE: 7TH, 8TH GRADE

In this league, all the rules of baseball are in force, including leadoffs and stealing. Teams are formed by a draft with the objective of evenness and balance. Umpires work all games.

Pony League teams play in the Chicago Suburban Youth Baseball Association and play against teams from surrounding towns.
