Homewood Baseball and Softball is one of the premier youth sports organizations in the Chicago Area. Established in 1951, our volunteer organization has grown to one of the largest Baseball, Softball, and T-ball organizations in the area.
HBSL MISSION STATEMENT
Our mission is to create a fun, competitive and fair environment for players of all ages and abilities to improve their skills and build lifelong friendships through sport.
Our nearly 70-year history in Homewood was built though volunteerism, dedication and pride in creating a sense of community and nurturing a healthy love of the game.
HBSL VISION STATEMENT
Retain and grow the league while continuing to evolve and adapt to meet the changing needs of the community and youth sports. As a board, continue to represent the league in its entirety and remain the oldest and largest youth baseball and softball program in the south suburbs of Chicago.

Sportsmanship: Teaching coaches, players and parents the value of playing hard, playing fair, respecting umpires and playing for the benefit of the team
Competition: Providing appropriate competition for children of all skill levels
Volunteerism: Building a league around our volunteer(s) (coaches, board members, commissioners and concession stand workers) that fosters a sense of community and friendship among our players, families and friends
Heritage: We have built the largest and oldest baseball and softball league in the south suburbs of Chicago based on the strength of our people, our neighborhood and our fields.
