What Makes Slammers Different?

  • We are community based. We have strong ties to the house leagues in Lincolnwood, Morton Grove, Niles and Skokie and to the local high school programs.
  • We are a developmental program. We focus on helping ALL of our players develop their skills. We don’t have players languish on the bench, and we don’t scour the metropolitan area for players that others develop.
  • We are a not-for-profit organization. Our decisions about what teams to field are based on the needs within our community and the number of teams we can fully support with coaching and facilities rather than how much money we can make by fielding more teams.
  • We emphasize playing the game the “right way.”
  • We have access to first-rate facilities at Niles West and Niles North.
  • We have world-class pitching coaches.
  • We have been around for a quarter century and have seen other programs come and go.
