Stateline Baseball

Stateline Thunder Competitive Baseball Teams


There are select players throughout our league who show excellence in Athletic Skill, Sportsmanship, and Teamwork. Many of them would be able to play baseball for any one of the Travel Programs around the area.  However, it's not always an option for our players to do FT Travel Baseball. For those players that deserve a higher level of play, for those that want a higher level of training...we are the Stateline Thunder.  Limited Travel, high level of training, great competition, low costs.

Our program is the area's ONLY registered Non-Profit program. We do not pay our coaches, we don't pocket any profits, and we don't fill our rosters with kids just because they can write a check. As a program under Stateline Baseball, we are a true community baseball team, focused on what is right for your kid, NOT a coach's glory or company profits.

Our focus is giving kids the ability to play baseball in their community, and through regional tournaments, WITHOUT the high prices, or trophy chasing pressures of other area travel teams.


• Players for the Stateline Thunder must play in the Stateline Baseball Community league.
• Players must tryout for the team at any appropriately scheduled tryout.
• Must meet all the age requirements, as applicable for that Season's Team.
• Must pay all appropriate Community League & Thunder registration fees in full.

Off-Season Training

After the Fall Ball season has concluded, we begin our off-season training. These off-season activities will be for the development of players hoping to improve their baseball skills and IQ. This is also a great way to get a leg into possible play our Stateline Thunder program. Players can expect training in all areas of the game, with detailed video analysis of hitting/throwing.

We hold 2 separate 2 hour sessions, 8u, 10u, 12u, and 13+ every Saturday from January through March @ Stateline Sports Indoor Center7939 Burden Rd. Machesney Park, IL 61115
