Welcome to the homepage of Parkside Junior High School Baseball
At Parkside Junior High, we field two teams.
The A Team is composed of the best baseball players in the school. Generally, these athletes are 8th graders. There may be 7th graders who show the skill level and maturity to compete on the A Team. Their schedule is designed to give them practice and game opportunities to learn the game of baseball at a highly competitive, highly skilled level. This team competes in a season culminating IESA sponsored State Tournament played at the Eastside Center in East Peoria.
The B Team is composed of players who aspire to become A Team players. Generally, these athletes are 7th graders. There may be 6th graders who show the skill level and maturity to compete on the B Team. This team does not compete in a state tournament.
Our field is located at the corner of College Avenue and Parkside Road, Normal.
