The STL Naturals Baseball Club was established in 2011 to provide the premier environment in the St. Louis area for youth and high-school baseball players. Lance Schuermann and Rich Phillips saw a need for a club to provide lower-cost/higher effort training to its players. As such, the Naturals have brought in highly experienced coaches, most playing a minimum of college baseball, and several seeing playing time in the minors and MLB.
The Naturals high school level teams are playing extensively in showcase and exposure tournaments with the goal of graduating as many players as possible into the next level – college baseball. The season for our high school teams starts in early Winter for extensive indoor training, and later after high school ball is finished our summer season begins! Our youth teams begin at age 10 and continue through age 14. We have multiple teams at 10U, 12U, 13U and 14U, and our teams play from the AA level all the way through USSSA Major. Like the high school teams, our youth teams begin workouts in early Winter, and continue all the way through Summer. We provide several guest instructors at our Winter training sessions, such as current MLB coaches and players.
Most Naturals teams play in multiple tournaments both in the St. Louis area as well as out-of-town locations. We feel that our youth coaches are ABSOLUTELY committed to providing the most comprehensive instruction available in Missouri and we thank you for following us this season!
