The Des Moines Urban Baseball League is a collaboration between Fellowship of Christian Athletes, Iowa Cubs, John R. Grubb YMCA, Boys and Girls Club of Central Iowa, Atlas Sports Group and Elim Christian Fellowship.
The league is free and will runs from May through mid-June. Games will be played every Saturday at the Grubb YMCA.
The purpose of the league is to promote the physical and spiritual well being of the young people in our city by providing an environment for physical, mental and spiritual growth. We are seeking to provide young people with a fundamental knowledge of both baseball and biblical character. We do this by bringing in coaches and volunteers such as Iowa Cubs players, former professionals, and high school coaches who understand baseball and serve as role models to these young people. We also do this by praying before and after games and by having a time of devotion each Saturday.
