Our park was founded in 1955 as the first Little League baseball park in South Bend. Since then we have gone through many changes. Beginning with only Boys 12 Under Baseball, we have since added Boys 10U Baseball, Girls Softball ages 6-18,Boys 13-18 Baseball and finally Boys and Girls Tee Ball ages 4-5. We now offer 5 Diamonds (2 Lighted) on over 20 acres.
