The Lakewood Baseball Club will host a pre-registration spaghetti feast and fundraiser on Friday, October 30 (5-8 pm) at Lake Louise Elementary.
For returning Lakewood Baseball Club players, here is your chance to register for the 2016 season. Regular Registration begins November 2, but you can “lead off” with this special event.
Those interested in learning about Lakewood Baseball Club, please stop by to talk to one of our volunteers.
Lakewood Baseball Club (LBC) will have computers available to register this evening, and you will have a chance to “steal” a base with a special offer. By registering this evening, and paying a minimum of 50% of your 2016 registration fee, you will receive our early bird special discount.
Of course, we would not like to have you miss dinner… Lakewood Baseball Club will be holding a special Spaghetti Feed Fundraiser (donation) for one of our own. Jeff Gallagher is a former LBC Coach, LBC Board Officer and Umpire. His son, Adam Gallagher, has a rare form of Leukemia. The Lakewood Baseball Family is donating a portion of the proceeds to help them in their time of need. It takes a TEAM to defeat this!
Who is Lakewood Baseball Club?
Lakewood Baseball Club is a nonprofit organization providing area youth AGES 4-19 the opportunity to play the great game of baseball. Our players come from Lakewood, Tacoma, Puyallup, University Place, Parkland, Steilacoom and surrounding areas. They are placed into divisions based on age and skill level. While we are not affiliated with City of Lakewood Parks and Recreation or Clover Park Schools, we have formed mutually benefitting relationships and use many of their fields.
The Lakewood Baseball Club strives to instill in our youth the belief in good sportsmanship, honesty, loyalty and a sense of teamwork so that they may become strong, healthy, well-adjusted members of the community.
It is our mission as volunteer coaches and parents to provide a healthy atmosphere for our players, regardless of ability or experience, in which they are able to learn the positive aspects of baseball and utilize what they learn, on and off the field.
LBC is affiliated with PONY baseball. The PONY baseball program was created for all players to be able to participate in baseball. We want to Protect Our Nation’s Youth as they grow into young men and women and leaders of tomorrow. PONY is a community based program for everyone in the family to enjoy.
