Youth Baseball and Softball League
The Village of Godfrey Parks & Recreation Department offers a Rookie Baseball Program for ages 3-5, Youth Baseball/Softball program for ages 5-14, and a Competitive Recreational league for boys ages 15-18. The youth program focuses on teaching the participants the necessary skills to make them achievers in the game. Our youth baseball and softball program seeks to teach participants the fundamentals of baseball and softball while instilling good sportsmanship values. The competitive recreational league for high school age seeks to allow the older group to continue to play baseball for FUN while still over the competitiveness they seek.
The Village of Godfrey participates in the local Little League charter for the Minor (9-10), Major (11-12) and Junior (13-14) Leagues. These leagues travel to surrounding communities including Jerseyville, Grafton, Calhoun, Carrolton and Meppen to play (directions to these fields are at the bottom of this page).

Metro East Recreational Baseball League
The Godfrey Parks and Recreation Department is partnering with the Metro East Recreational Baseball League to offer high school aged boys (14-18) an opportunity to play competitive recreational summer baseball.
MERBL allows anyone who is going to be a freshman in the 2018-2019 school year, or anyone who will be graduating in the spring of 2018, an opportunity to play in this travelling recreational league.
MERBL follows NFHS baseball rules, with some addendums. The league will consist of 16-18 games, beginning in late May/early June and ending by the end of July (weather permitting). A single elimination tournament will be played at the end of the season.
This is a travelling league- other teams in the league consist of O’Fallon, Belleville, Millstadt, Troy, Granite City and Collinsville.
