Welcome to the heart of the Southside of San Antonio! We offer Little League sanctioned baseball and softball programs for boys and girls from ages 7 to 16! Come visit our fields and join us! Our league is located at 8214 S. Flores (between Formosa and Amber). We host SPRING divisions in non-sanctioned tiny tee (ages 3 & 4); in t-ball (ages 5 & 6); coach-pitch (softball (girls only) & baseball (boys) ages 7 & 8); Little League sanctioned minor (boys & girls ages 9 & 10); major (boys & girls ages 11 & 12); juniors (boys & girls ages 13 & 14) seniors (boys & girls ages 15 & 16) and Big League (boys and girls ages 17-18). Regular baseball rules apply for boys when playing in the 50/70 division (ages 12 & 13) and age 13 and older.  Junior Division and older play on regulation baseball field (60/90).  For each division (except Tiny T which is seperate from Little League), boys' age set yearly by Little League International and girls' age as of December 31 of the preceding year.  We are a volunteer organization and appreciate all community support.  Thanks to all the people who generously volunteer their time, energy, and know-how!  We are grateful for every minute!

5Diamonds Board of Directors, our players, parents, coaches, and friends cannot express the debt of our gratitude to Toyota Motor Manufacturing Texas for supporting our programs and its children every year.  Truly it comes from the heart of the Southside!  Please accept our heartfelt THANKS!


The private airplane that crashed on 5diamonds property today, Saturday May 10, 2014 clipping the 5Diamonds field #3 outfield fence and landing between our fence and the creek fence, resulted in all games on field 3 being canceled by SAPD and Firefighters.  Although a game was being played, no children were injured.  Thanks to quick thinking coaches, the pilot of the private plane was removed and taken by ambulance to the hospital.  Thanks for your patience as we reschedule games on Field 3.  All other games on the other fields are not affected.

 Hitting Drill

The tee ball drill that powers LSU baseball video is GREAT.  It’s not just for kindergarteners. Hitting the ball off a tee can make you a better batter. Here’s how LSU's baseball team uses Tee Ball to get consistent hits.
