Sandlot Baseball

The sights and sounds of America's Pastime can still be heard at The Sandlot, formerly the Mickey Owen Baseball School. Mickey's dream of teaching kids to play the game the right way continues under the direction of Brad Longley and Tom Cox.

Combining old school work ethic with the newest innovations and techniques, Sandlot Baseball offers players an opportunity to take their game to the next level. Whether you're a newcomer to the sport or an experienced performer, The Sandlot can help you reach your full potential.

Come enjoy youth baseball instruction at its finest, in our history-laden complex in the heart of the Ozarks and at some of the finest indoor facilities in the area.

The Sandlot Baseball Complex has six beautiful, age-appropriate fields where kids from 8-18 can play baseball from April to August. We have 13 Tournaments scheduled in 2019, and have numerous Day and Overnight Camps planned throughout the winter, spring and summer.

Thank you for the overwhelming support of coaches, players, parents and fans. Because of you, The Sandlot lives on.

We hope you'll join us, and look forward to hearing those immortal words, "Play Ball!"

April Showers bring . . . wet fields!

The April 18 and 25 tournaments will be remembered for wet conditions and some very patient and understanding coaches, players and parents.  Late rains just about washed out the first two tournaments of 2015.  However, "The Magician," Brad Longley and his crew of Logan Phillips and Kaden Shoff, somehow managed to get the fields playable after a couple of hours delay.

What we saw were incredible performances by the teams on hand!  And some great attitudes by everyone involved in the tournaments.  We continue to be amazed by the folks who come to The Sandlot and want to say "Thank you" for your support.  We love what we do, and the players, coaches and their fans make it all worthwhile.  We don't always get it perfect, but it's not from a lack of effort.

Our motto says, "Building Better People Through Baseball."  Well, from where we sit, you have already done a great job of that.  Keep up the good work and we hope to see you again soon at The Sandlot.
