We are currently known as Lebanon County Youth Legion 2012-present

This is the former web-site of Lebanon County Junior Legion. The league existed from 1969-2011

Before that it was known as Lebanon County Connie Mack Knee-Hi Baseball League from 1950-1955/ 1963-1968

Before that it was known as Lebanon County Midget Baseball League in 1949

 The Lebanon County Youth Legion Baseball League is looking for teener age teams to compete in the league next season, 2019, and take it to the next level.  Develop your team from a clearly defined geographic area in Lebanon  County, no raiding of players from another team's territory.  Compete with other teams from around the state, not with all-stars, but with your team, which you developed and coached during the regular season.  Youth Legion is the largest provider of baseball for 13 to 16 year olds in the state of Pennsylvania with 17 leagues and 174 teams in 35 counties under its jurisdiction.

The league has been in existence since 1949 and has had many great players, coaches, and managers in its storied past.  For further information please contact President Ed Spittle 717-865-5117 or Vice-President Skip Wolf  717-272-8844.
