Grassroots Grown, Locally owned

With a rich baseball legacy, Lake Country has long rooted for a team to call its own. After all, our lifestyle here is everything summer fun — and as any local knows, summer just isn’t summer without baseball. So the community came together to bring the best ball to our backyard. And with our Lake Country style in the game, the energy is unmatched. 

Tom, Lisa & Jarred Kelenic

Tom & Lisa have long been a Lake Country powerhouse team working to give local youth and athletes the chance to learn, love and excel at the game. They are co-owners of the Five Diamonds complex, NX Level training, and STiKS Baseball Academy. Their son, Jarred Kelenic, is a professional player and MLB top prospect.

Sonny & Sal Bando

Local legend Sal Bando is a retired 16-year MLB professional baseball player, and 8-year MLB General Manager. He was an integral member of the Oakland Athletics dynasty that won 3 consecutive World Series championships between 1972 and 1974. His son, Sonny, is also a local business owner.
