Development Based Instruction

29ers Baseball offers a year-round baseball program based off of high-level instruction led by coaches with decades of high school, college, and high travel baseball experience.  The 29ers staff strives to maximize the talents of our players by pushing them to reach individual, team, and program goals.


The original crew that started it all.

High Level Competition

29ers Baseball teams are proud founding members of the Chicago Scouts Association's I94 League made up of the very best players and travel baseball programs in the Midwest.  Additionally, our teams play in the best local, regional, and national events.  This allows our players to regularly play in front of college coaches from all levels as well as professional scouts while playing against top level competition.      

College Recruitment, Planning, and Assistance

The staff with 29ers Baseball program utilizes its many contacts throughout baseball coaching community to highlight and promote our players.  We also lean on the expertise of Lawler Baseball Training, led by Scott Lawler,  to help guide our players and families through the college recruitment process.  Scott Lawler brings with him over 10 years of NCAA D1 college coaching and recruiting experience as the former Associate Head Coach, Recruiting Coordinator at the University of Notre Dame, University of Arkansas Little Rock, University of Evansville, and Northern Illinois University as well as stints with USA Baseball.  He's also served as an Associate Scout for the Florida Marlins.
