Thunder Bay Lakers Baseball Club: Welcome


The Thunder Bay Lakers 12U Baseball Club will have a full schedule this season traveling to tournaments in Minnesota, Wisconsin, and Ontario as well as playing in the Thunder Bay Little League. 

The Thunder Bay Lakers have joined with the Northwest Slam Baseball Club and together have had over 40 players play at the collegiate level.

The Northwest Slam and Thunder Bay Lakers program's were developed to give Thunder Bay's elite baseball players the opportunity to showcase their abilities to college coaches and professional scouts. Since there are no High School baseball programs in Thunder Bay, we are trying to give our players a chance to reach the next level, whether it be in the college or professional ranks.
