16U goes 2-2 in St. Louis College Exposure
The 16U Sizzlers split 4 games in St. Louis College Exposure over the Halloween weekend. There were a number of College Coaches there and our players showed themselves well. Rain cost the Sizzlers their first game, but this was worth the trip.

Take 2nd place overall
Go 1 - 2, but all games were close
The Sizzlers started slow and lost to a team they had defeated just two weeks ago. Fortunately, the Sizzlers went out and won their next game. Ultimately, in bracket play, they lost a heartbreaker 8-7 to finish their play in Algonquin. They are ready for their next assignment
Round Robin Sweep on Saturday 9-21-13
The 12U Sizzlers kept their focus for all three games and went undefeated in the Downers Grove Round Robin Tournament. They used their bats to hit and bunt their way to 40+ runs in three games. They had strong pitching and defense to back up the bats. What a way to start, win 2 by Mercy rule and a big win in the finale to round out the night.
ON BASE a ton in Dowers Grove
The 16U Lemont Sizzlers put on a hitting expedition on September 14th and 15th at the Premier Girls Fastpitch Tournament in Downer Grove. Heavy rain shortened the weekend, but the Sizzlers bats thundered before and during the downpour to gut out an 8-4 win in their final game.
14U Sizzlers at the NSA Battle Royale
The revamped 14U Sizzlers kicked off their 2013/14 Fall Season this past weekend (Sept 7) in Kankakee at the NSA Battle Royale. They won the only game they played versus a 14U Team and battled hard versus two 16U Teams that were in their Bracket.
Welcome to the Sizzlers all our new 14U Players and Families!
The Fall Season kicked off in Kankakee
The Sizzlers 18U Elite kicked off their fall season at the NSA Battle Royale in Kankakee. Welcome to the Sizzlers Fall Season to all Sizzler's 18U Elite Players, Families and Coaches
The 16U (Freikl) Sizzlers took 2nd place in the ASA B Chicago Metro Tournament held in mid-July. There were many close games and the Sizzlers capitalized on strong hitting, defense and pitching to take second palce. In the final game, the Sizzlers were up 4-1 late, but the opponent got hot for one inning to win in the championship game by two runs. Great regular season for the 16U Freikl Sizzlers. Nationals are next...
The 14U Sizzlers finished their summer season strong in Vernon Hills with a first place finish in pool play. The team capitalized on their good pitching and strong hitting to be seeded first. Overall, the team performed very well this season and have memories and friendships that will last a long time. Thanks to Dani, Alyssa, Sarah, Vanessa, Shannon, Amber, Chrissy, Jessica, Emily, Marissa and Amy for a great season!!!
Nothing like a double-header vs Caledonia, Michigan and a fun day on the lake!
The 16U Sizzlers (Freikl) visited Paw Paw, Michigan on July 1 and 2 to play former Winter opponent - Caledonia, Michigan. Game 1 was a tie with double digit runs for each team. Quite different from the Winter 2-1 game that went into extra innings. Game 2 was a Sizzler win. Afterwards, the team headed to Kayla's Lake House and promptly swam across the entire lake - Coach Tony picked up a couple stragglers on the boat. On July 2, you can see by the pictures, the Sizzlers didn't let lousy weather bother them as they took to the water to Wakeboard (or atleast try), Kneeboard, go Tubing and Canoeing...Great fun on a great lake..
The 16U Sizzlers (Frey, Mikl) "Freikl" came back strong on Sunday after a rough day of Saturday softball in Wheaton. Ranked low after Pool Play, the 16U Sizzlers easily defeated Wheaton Sunday, advanced to defeat Bartlett and go to the finals versus the Roselle Rampage. The Sizzlers had a 2 - 0 lead going into the bottom of the 6th, but the Rampage put on their hitting shoes and took the lead. The Sizzlers had a great showing but are disappointed that victory slipped just by. Great weekend of Pitching by Jessica, Elizabeth and Anna. Great hitting by: Autumn, Emily, Karina, Anna, Bri, Hope, Kayla, Grace, Jess, Liz, Rachel (If you didn't notice, that's everyone). Stellar defense highlighted by "the GUN" in Centerfield of Bri. Run if you dare!!
Home Runs help power the Sizzlers to Peoria!
The 16U Lemont Sizzlers (Frey, Mikl) "Freikl" team earned their NSA World Series bid with two strong performances in Kankakee, first with a with a 2nd Place Finish and another great tournament showing the week after. Highlights included 4 home runs by Liz, 2 by Hope and Rachel with her first round-tripper. GREAT JOB Sizzlers "Freikl"! PEORIA HERE WE COME!
Okay, so maybe that's not such a surprise, but the 14U Lemont Sizzlers are making the plays and having a great 2013 summer season!
