League | Competitive | Age: 13 – 19

Signup opens soon

American Legion baseball is a staple in Tucson summer baseball. For over 80 years American Legion baseball has been played in Tucson. Generations of families have participated in the longest continuous summer program in Tucson.

Legion baseball represents all the veterans and current military men and women who have served our country. They made the commitment to our country, the players that player Legion Baseball are required to give back with that commitment.

The league is highly competitive. Scores and standings maintained to qualify teams to play in the National Legion

The league requires that every game maintains scores for all games.

The league offers a post-season tournament for those teams that wish to continue to play for a championship.

The adage “It’s only summer ball” is one that does not fit into the league vernacular. Coaches, players, parents that utilize this adage are those that use it as an excuse if a player or game does not have a positive result. Those programs that take the summer seriously will be the ones that see success down the road.

American Legion Baseball enjoys a reputation as one of the most successful and tradition-rich amateur athletic leagues. Today, the program registers teams in all 50 states plus Canada. read more

The Kino Sports Complex is the home of the Kino Baseball League since the league’s inception in 2010.

The fields are professionally maintained, and the facilities that include restrooms, concessions, covered bleacher seating, and lawn common areas for chair seating are clean daily, compared to City and county fields that the league uses are prepared by a group of staff that are hired by the league to get the fields ready for each game.  There are no concession facilities, but there are restroom facilities at city and county parks.

The Kino Sports Complex is not a public park.  It is classified as a “district” that is in the business of turning a profit by attracting events to the various facilities.   The city and county parks are under the jurisdiction of the Tucson Parks and Recreation and Pima County Natural Resources which are not in the business of turning a profit.

Due the large number of teams that participate in the Kino Baseball League, there are not enough city and county fields that can accommodate our operation; therefore, a majority of summer league games are played at the Kino Sports Complex due to the multi number of baseball fields that are available.

Playing at the Kino Sports Complex comes with a price tag that is extremely more than playing at city and county parks.   Along with the cost of field rental and light costs, the league is required to pay for ancillary support cost that include county event staff, cleaning staff (custodian for restrooms), security and athletic trainers from Banner Medicine and Orthopedic every night that the league plays.  All this cost adds up, and therefore to offset these costs admission is charged to the public daily.

The player registration fee that you pay covers the cost of umpires, baseballs, insurance, and a small percentage of the field and light costs that the league is charged.  To cover the costs of the ancillary costs at Kino, admission must be charged.     There is no admission charged at city or county parks because of less cost responsibility on behalf of the league.

The Kino Sports Complex also has various policies on what items can and cannot be brought in.  These policies are posted on the Kino Baseball League website and will be sent prior to the start of the season to all coaches that participate in the summer league to communicate with the families.
