About Skokie Youth

Our History

The Skokie Youth Baseball Organization was established in 1977 and has endured in the community, providing an athletic outlet for those geared towards the American pastime and also a landing for the Sabbath-observant north suburban community. As detailed in the headlines of a recent community newsletter, “They Don’t Pitch on Sabbath!”

Skokie Youth is an independent, volunteer organization. We receive no funds, equipment, uniforms, or assistance from any national organization– Skokie Youth’s existence is due entirely to its generous sponsors and adult volunteers. Our volunteers contribute countless hours and immeasurable energy as managers, coaches, and board members.

This year marks the 40th season of Skokie Youth baseball and we are extremely excited to unveil a brand new uniform that commemorates 40 years under the sun and as a symbol of the community that Skokie Youth represents. The “SY” forms a hamsa hand which is a multi-cultural symbol of protection (and good defense! You’ll notice it caught the baseball). It is said to bring the wearer good fortune and prosperity, things we hope to bring to our organization with your help.
