Lincoln-Way Prospects Travel Baseball Coaching Staff
In addition to our coaches, we also feature some of the best skill specific mentors and instructors in the area.
Experience. Knowledge. Professionalism. Dedication. Continued Education. Proven Credentials. Sustained Success.

For most it goes without being said, but unfortunately there are still people that simply don't comprehend the history of metro baseball, nor do they acquire accurate information. This is competitive youth baseball, not little league nor recreational athletics. As a result, with the investment a family makes in their child, financial and time, we agree with several other fine programs that you should have the information below, clearly showing you the experience and the proven credentials of the unpaid volunteers that you trust your child with. It's our courtesy and accountability to you. These coaching milestones reflect upon the wonderful growth, improvement and execution of the game by hundreds of children we've been privileged to teach. You sought the information from our link, here it is:

Lincoln-Way Prospects Travel Baseball is the first youth baseball organization in New Lenox, IL to publicly announce that it encourages and supports their administrators and coaching staff, including managers, to participate in any capacity, with any baseball club or organization whereas their contributions as a volunteer can foster the advancement of recreational or amateur sports.

Our organization believes families should have choice and quality options as parents not forced to make a choice with whom to coach because of out-dated or restrictive by-laws and policy. Without disrupting their travel team commitment, our staff may help children at any level, in any community without being forced to choose between which child to assist as a volunteer when developmental and instructional programs are offered by different clubs.

Athletes first, politics ousted.
