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!"

May 9 Tournament Washed Out!

We worked hard Friday to get the fields ready for another full tournament at The Sandlot.  Brad dug trenches to get standing water off the dirt portion of the infields, periods of sun and wind provided enough drying to get them turned over and when we left for home Friday night, all 6 fields were ready for play.

But despite our best efforts, heavy pre-dawn rainfall has caused us to cancel a tournament for the first time in 2015.  Our apologies to all of the players, coaches and fans who were looking forward to a great day of baseball at The Sandlot.  The forecast is calling for quite a bit of additional rain throughout the weekend.

We hope you will be able to play in one of our future tournaments.  Next week's tourney (May 16) will only be played at The Sandlot, so space will be limited.  Mt. Vernon's fields won't be available as they will be playing their big Opening Day games because of rain this week.

We would like to wish you and your families a great Mother's Day weekend and say thank you to all of the moms who sacrifice so much so their kids can play ball.  You are awesome!
