Lexington is proud to present a Youth Softball Program.
Lexington is part of the Southeast McLean County Travel League. This conference is comprised of teams from Blue Ridge, Colfax, El Paso / Gridley, Farmer City, Fieldcrest, Flanagan, Gibson City, Heyworth, LeRoy, Mansfield, Tri Valley and Lexington.
The Southeast McLean County Travel League is divided into four divisions: Machine Pitch (Ages 8 & under), Minors (ages 10 & under), Majors (ages 12 & under) and Intermediates (ages 14 & under). Division is determined by players age as of 4/30, not their grade level.
Softball practices are determined by the coaches at each level. Games are usually on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, but can occasionally be on other days. The season ends either before July 4th or the first week after July 4th, depending on the day of the week July 4th is on and the weather.
The focus of the youth softball program is for every player to play during a game. This particular league is a participation league. Players will have equal amount of playing time regardless of their ability during the regular season. Coaches are instructed to teach the young baseball players how to throw, run, field and learn the rules in order to facilitate their progression towards high school softball.
