Our Mission

Lake City Youth Baseball Association is a motivated group of parents, local businesses and community members working together to provide a quality youth baseball and fast-pitch softball program to Lake City and surrounding communities.

To enable this to happen there are people and teams all across the community pushing this common vision. Local fundraisers, raffles and business sponsorships help make our program the most affordable opportunity in the area.

What We Believe

We love the game of baseball, but in the end it’s just that: A GAME!

Baseball will not be more important than school.

Baseball will not be more important than our family.

And baseball will not be more important than our individual development.

The game of baseball will serve many life lessons along the way, but it will not be our life’s priority.

There may be people that have more talent than you, but there’s no excuse for anyone to work harder than you do.

Derek Jeter

Talent may get you on the field, but it’s effort and attitude that will keep you there.

Ken Griffey, Jr.

I don’t think anybody’s goal is to be mediocre. I think everybody should want to be the best. I’ve always felt that way. I want to be at the best at everything I do.

Justin Verlander

You don’t have to be great to start, but you have to start to be great.
