Lake Park provides fun and competitive baseball for players ages 4 through 10. Our coaches stress fundamentals at all levels and try to instill a love and respect of the game. We serve a large area that includes players from downtown Duluth to rural Duluth, from Congdon all the way to Two Harbors, and everywhere in between.

Lake Park Field Schedule
Here is the field schedule for the first two weeks of Instructional Minor and Minor practices:
(*New in 2023!) Little Boppers Wiffle Ball (Intro to Baseball/Rookies)(registration closed 4/28)- We decided to revamp our rookie program to best serve the needs of our youngest players. We have moved to a two-nights a week model that will combine basic skill introduction and fun wiffle ball games. Each session will begin with throwing, hitting, and fielding mechanics using wiffle balls, tennis balls, and soft baseballs. Then, players and coaches will participate in a fun and fast-paced wiffle ball game. This will be an opportunity for kids to learn the basic rules of baseball while having fun smashing wiffle balls and running the bases. Kids will need to have their own baseball glove but a wiffle ball bat will be provided to each player! Practice and game nights will be Mondays and Wednesdays beginning May 31st and the recommended age is 4-6.
Instructional Minors (Coach Pitch) (registration closed 4/7/23, email about waitlist)- This level is when kids move to a regular sized field, use typical baseball equipment, and play by modified baseball rules. Sessions are divided into a team practice (where basic skills of throwing, hitting and fielding are stressed) and a game against an opposing team. Game play involves the coach pitching to players starting from about 25 to 30 feet away. Players will be required to have their own batting helmet, bat and a glove at this level. Practice and game nights will be Tuesdays and Thursdays starting May 9th and the recommended age is 5-7.
Minors (Player Pitch)(registration closed 4/7/23, email about waitlist)- This is when baseball really starts looking like baseball! Kids will now be pitching to hitters, players will be allowed to steal bases, standings will be kept and the league playoffs will take place at the end of the season. Individual skills are still stressed during practice time but there is more incorporation of team concepts and situational play. Game nights will be Tuesdays and Thursdays starting May 9th, with Sundays being a makeup day and optional practice day based on coach discretion. The recommended age is 7-10.

Rain is always an issue in the summer. Games will be played in the rain as long as the field does not become unsafe. Any observed lightning, games will be halted. Wait a minimum of 30 minutes from the last observed lightning or thunder before resuming activities.
The league covers a large geographic area, the players and parents should never assume that because it is raining in their area, it is raining at the fields. Please assume the game will be played unless you are notified otherwise.
