About Us

Our Lincoln Youth Baseball Organization of Lincoln, Nebraska, was founded in 1957 and originally named Lincoln Little Chiefs after the professional minor league baseball team of that era. The Little Chiefs program affiliated with the National Little League organization in 1991 and was then referred to as Lincoln Little League.

In 2008, we ended our affiliation with National Little League because we exceeded the population restrictions that National Little League required. Since then our League is associated with the Lincoln Saltdogs and we utilize the name Junior Saltdogs League. All programs, services, insurance, and League administration, are provided by our Organization.

We provide baseball programs for the following age Divisions:

  • U6 T-Ball (for 5-6 year olds)
  • U8 Machine Pitch (for 7-8 year olds)
  • U10 (for 9-10 year olds)
  • U12 (for 11-12 year olds)
  • U14 (for 13-14 year olds)
  • U17 (for 15-17 year olds)
  • “Homer’s Heroes” for children 5-17 years with physical or intellectual disabilities

The Lincoln Youth Baseball Organization is a 501 (c)3 Corporation. Information on this website is for general information purposes only and may be updated as needed. Exact information can be obtained from the Division Commissioners as the season commences.

It is the mission of Junior Saltdogs League to provide an opportunity for youth from Lincoln, Nebraska, and the surrounding area to play and learn the game of baseball, improve their skills and confidence, and develop self-respect and respect for others, within a safe and fun environment.
