2.11.15 - Welcome Parents, Coaches, Kids and Friends to another very special season at SLS.  This year is our 50th Year Anniversary!






This year we will have special 50th Ann. shirts and be introducing SLS's 4th brand new Baseball Field at the Chewsville Community Center.  This 4th field will allow kids to grow further and give them an opportunity to play in a 50/70 Cal Ripken program.  Our Practice facilities through our community partnerships continue with the Town of Smithsburg, Black Rock Park(Wash. Co.) and Brooklane Health Services.

Please watch out for more events and annoucements as our 50th season is in full swing.  Sign ups are on-going now!!!

50th Year Anniversary  1965 - 2015



SLS Baseball was established in 1965 in Smithsburg, Maryland. We offer recreational and some travel baseball leagues for all youths ages 4-18 for the ENTIRE Washington County area. We are affiliated with Babe Ruth Baseball Inc. and have 2 different divisions broken up into individual leagues. Our Babe Ruth Division offers competitive baseball ages 13-18 that travels within Washington and Frederick Counties. Our Cal Ripken Division offers in house baseball played at our field in Smithsburg. Cal Ripken Division is broken down into 4 different leagues; all games are played on a 60ft. Diamond. Our Major League is for ages 11 & 12, our Minor League is for ages 9-10 and both of these leagues are "kid pitch". Our Rookie League is ages 6 - 8 and utilizes a "machine pitch" approach using a regular baseball @ 40mph. Our Instructional Tee-Ball league uses both a Tee and a "machine pitch" approach using a soft baseball; this allows the fundamentals of baseball to be taught. We also host Invitational Tournaments at the end of our regular season that provides a competitive yet fun baseball experience for age groups 8 up.
