Westside Baseball of Oak Lawn

On June 1, 1962, Columbus Manor Little League was established -

"To implant firmly in the boys of the community, the ideals of good sportsmanship, honesty, loyalty, courage and reverence, so that they may be finer, stronger and happier boys, and will grow up to be good, clean, healthy men. This to be achieved through a supervised program of competitive baseball."


On February 28, 1972, the organization voted to change the name to Westside Baseball of Oak Lawn.

Today, Westside Baseball of Oak Lawn continues to implant firmly in the children of the community, the ideals of good sportsmanship, honesty, loyalty, courage and reverence, so that they may be finer, stronger and happier children, and will grow up to be good, clean, healthy men and women.

Westside Baseball of Oak Lawn is a place where children can come to play so that they may be well adjusted, stronger and happier children and will grow to be good, decent, healthy and trustworthy individuals.

To achieve this objective, Westside Baseball of Oak Lawn will provide a supervised program of competitive baseball games under the rules and policies of the league.
