Lincoln Heat History

The Lincoln Heat baseball program was formed in 2002 to teach the fundamentals of baseball, commitment to individual and team development, sportsmanship, and most important to have fun playing competitive baseball. In the 2003 inaugural year, the Lincoln Heat fielded a single 11-year-old team. In 2004 and 2005, the Heat fielded two teams. In 2006, the Heat added two teams to field 11, 12, 13 and 14-year-old teams. In 2008, the Heat added a 9-year-old team to field a full six-team organization with teams from 9 to 14 years-old.

The Heat baseball program plays from the beginning of April through the middle of July, and does not play as many games as the 65-90 game schedule of other select teams. This gives the young men on the team the opportunity to play at a competitive level and still be young men. Out of town travel for the program is limited, with most games within a 60-mile radius of Lincoln. Unless the teams are playing in a tournament, the program also does not typically play on both weekend days, leaving important weekend time for family. Practices will run approximately twice weekly depending upon game schedules and weather conditions. A significant time and financial commitment is required by each player and his family to ensure the program's success. Practice begins in the fall and continues indoors through the winter months.

Although the program does not play as many games, this does not mean that the program is not fully committed to the development of the young men as baseball players. We have never been, and will never be a "win at all costs" organization. We want to have fun and we want to win, but the goal of our organization has always been this: to prepare our players and give them the skills and fundamentals to have a fighting chance to make their high school baseball teams. In 2007, the first year that our players had graduated from our program and on to high school baseball, every player that tried out for their high school team was selected to the freshman or reserve teams. Since then, several of our players have excelled in high school, not only on the baseball field but in the classroom and in other sports besides baseball. Some of our former players have gone on to play not only college baseball, but college football, college track and college tennis. This is something that as an organization our Board and coaches are extremely proud of, and is a testament to the hard work that our players have put in over the years to make themselves better. We are just as proud of our former Heat players that have a 4.0 average and are outstanding citizens as we are of our former Heat players that were All-City and All-State. There are many life lessons found in the sport of baseball. At some point - hopefully a long time in the future - we all "hang up the glove". We want to help prepare these young men for life outside of baseball, too.
