Lincoln Youth Baseball Organization (dba as Junior Saltdogs League)

Junior Saltdogs is a summer youth baseball program.  We have 7 divisions…U6 tball, U8 machine pitch, and player pitch for U10, U12, U14, and U17, and our Homer’s Heroes division for kids with physical or intellectual disabilities.

We have 75-100 teams each season, and there are no tryouts.  JSL commissioners form the teams based on the preferences that each player lists on their registration form for a specific coach, friend, or school.  While we can’t guarantee specific team placement, we do our very best to honor listed preferences while at the same time balancing player numbers between all the teams in each division.  Please check the FAQ page for answers to many questions.


Our 2021 season ended on July 26th.  Thanks to all our team sponsors, volunteer coaches, players, and parents for your support of Junior Saltdogs!  We look forward to having you back again next year.

See the Saturday, August 14th Lincoln Journal Star for our Season Highlights edition and photos.
