We just moved here to Lockport from Richton Park and I was curious which are the better travel teams for my 10 year old to go out for. He has played organized ball for almost 2 years and he is pretty good. played right field and a little bit of 2nd base last year. I see all these yard signs for yellow jackets badgers and rhinos in the area. please help. thanks

You are better of moving back to Richton Park. This town has nothing but inconsiderate neighbors blowing off firecrackers at all hours of the day,crappy parades, over priced local merchants, fake Sunday worhipers and ont evengetme started on the politicians. The local baseball clubs suck and their use are outrageous.

We just moved in last week and have yet to have any of those issues. I heard so many great things of Lockport.

Who said that,the people that sold you a home or their realtor? Have you been downtown? The place is a hell hole. Wait tillyourneighbors start blowing off fireworks at midnight or play loud music until 3 nthe morning.

We live close to Dellwood Park. Is that a good area? Lockport is pretty big. The people we bought from were here for 3 years and they said they loved it.

Everyone is going to have their own opinion, I'm sure I will hear about it, but looking at sheer consistently great teams, the Illinois Sparks are at the top. Probably one of the top 3 true "elite" organizations in the Chicagoland Area along with Upper Deck and Top Tier. There are going to be haters that disagree, but you cannot argue with these organization's results.
Rhinos are a start-up and are coming off their first year as an actual organization, I don't know if you call them a top program until they prove they can field great teams at each level year in/out and get kids into College/MLB. They do have pretty new uni's and a funny logo though.
Yellow Jackets have been around, have some decent teams, but don't think they are at a AAA or Major level.
Bottom line is you live in Homer, Sparks have a long term lease at the Bo Dome off of 167th and I355-right in your backyard. Awesome facility, year-round access, pro instruction, many D1-D3 and MLB Draftees over the year, but hard to get on a team. I'm not sure if they are even having tryouts...I have seen their 10u (11u next year for your son)and they have been a very dominating team for the past two years. Check the website. Tryouts are occurring now so I would start checking team's websites for the dates.
There are also the Lincolnway Blue Demons, Homer Heat, Lockport Cobras, Victory, Troy Titans...these organizations can sometimes produce some good competitive teams as well. I would try to find those who can provide the best facilities and instruction for the $. Only you will know what is best for your son...good luck.
Thank you!

If they loved it so much why did they leave? Did they tell you it was a relocation because of work? yea-right. Prepare for your home value to drop 4-6% each and every year.

McDonald is run by some REPUBLICANS that pretend to read the BIBLE. They are overpriced and have poor quality food.

I know my mom is into A-T-M (Ass to Mouth), and there are a few other moms that like it as well.
