We are excited to announce that Lightning Baseball has signed a partnership with the City of South Daytona to become their travel baseball organization!! Starting in Fall (July 2017), Lightning Baseball will run South Daytona’s 8U, 9U, 10U, 11U, and 12U travel teams on the (3) fields at James Street Park in South Daytona. The current South Daytona Stingray teams will exist at the 13U-15U age levels until those kids age out into high school. Then the 13U-15U age groups will also become South Daytona Lightning teams. This puts our Lightning Baseball on some of the nicest playing surfaces in our area while not competing for field time with any other organization.

This partnership provides an incredible amount of value to our kids, families, and coaching staff. This provides our kids with a clear pipeline to where they will play from 8U all the way through to high school. As a leadership team, it provides us a cost effective home base from where we can scale up from and allows us to strategically bring in world class outside coaching help as needed. The baseball organization support system at South Daytona is second to none and will be key in advising our organization as we grow from 2 teams up to 5-6 in July.

South Daytona Baseball has long been viewed as the standard for youth travel baseball. The South Daytona Lightning will look to continue this standard of baseball excellence set by the Stingray teams and drive it to new levels. We cannot wait to get started!!
