Skokie Indians Spring League Evaluations

Skokie Indians families, thank you to those who came out for our Spring House League evaluations last weekend. We had a great turnout and are always delighted to see the support for the Indians and community baseball.

We apologize for any delays that you may have experienced; but, we had encountered a few technical difficulties in the gym that set us behind and forced us to set things up a little differently than we had anticipated.

There were only a few players who may have had to leave early and were not able to finish getting evaluated. For those few, again, we do apologize and ask that you please come out to our next evaluation and we will be certain to get you at the top of the list.

If you were unable to make it, our second evaluation will be held Sunday, March 9th at 8:15p in the Weber Center. This evaluation will be for AAA (3rd and 4th graders) and Majors (5th and 6th graders). Please dress in athletic clothing and shoes, bring your mitt, bat and helmet (if you have one).

Hope to see you March 9th!

Attend a Cubs Game This Year to Help Support Skokie Indians

Wrigley-DreamsDear Skokie Indians family,

The Skokie Indians are partnering with Wrigley Dreams to raise funds for the upcoming season by providing you, your family and friends access to 4 great seats to 65 Chicago Cubs games for the 2014 season, the 100th anniversary of Wrigley Field. We have the opportunity to purchase these tickets at face value, and a portion of the proceeds will be donated to our league. For every 15 games (60 tickets) our teams sell before February 28th, our league will be given access to these same seats for one of 4 premium games, including Opening Day and May 21 vs the New York Yankees. These seats are in section 423, row 7, seats 5-8, in the Upper Deck Infield section, behind home plate, in prime foul ball territory, with a great view of the entire field, truly one of the best places in Wrigley Field to watch a game.

Wrigley Dreams is not a ticket broker, it is the website of a private season ticket holder, and the tickets are being offered at face value (ticket cost plus 12% Chicago Amusement tax, no additional fees). The Cubs are planning some great promotions and giveaways for the 100th Anniversary season, including Sunday “Throwback” games, featuring uniforms from each decade of Wrigley Field’s existence and Friday night bobble head giveaways. Many of these games are available. Here’s how you can participate:

  • Please go to and look at the schedule and tickets available.
  • Please send the attached email to friends, family, neighbors or anyone else who may be interested in attending a Cub game this season.
  • Beginning at noon on January 27th, order your tickets by hitting the “order tickets” button at the bottom of each month’s schedule page.
  • You will be directed to an email form, which will ask for your name, email address and comments.
  • In the “comments” section, indicate which game you would like tickets for, how many you would like (options are 4 or 2), and be sure to type “Skokie Indians” in the comments section. You will receive a confirmation email within 24 hours along with payment instructions.
  • Tickets are sold on a first-come, first-served basis, and the website will be updated as availability changes.
  • There are only 4 tickets available for each game, and there are 2-3 other leagues being included in this opportunity, so please get your orders in as soon as possible so that our league can fully benefit.

Thank you for your participation in this great opportunity, and for helping support Skokie Indians Baseball and Softball.

Pancho Espinoza
Skokie Indians Little League Baseball and Softball President
