OUR MISSION: B-Buzz Baseball League is committed to the personal and athletic development of all its players through quality coaching in a competitive, supportive and fun environment. With an emphasis on performance development, we promote fundamentals, teamwork, leadership discipline, integrity and sportsmanship all while enjoying the game of baseball. We strive to promote superior citizens rather than superior athletes.

OUR HISTORY: Founded in the late 1950's, the B-Buzz Baseball League was an integral part of many young men’s lives in the Lee-Harvard community. Fast forward to 1969 – Lee-Harvard’s rapid transformation to a predominantly African American middle-class neighborhood prompted a group of parents and community members to continue the league long after its original participants moved away. For more than 15 years after relocating to Charles W. Eliot field in 1969, five leagues comprised of young men ages 8 to 17, played almost every day during the summer. At one time, close to 300 youth participated in B-Buzz Baseball League every summer. By the early 1980s the league dissolved and the young men were on their way to becoming community leaders, professional athletes, and successful businessmen.

In 2015, after over 30 years of absence from the ball park, a newly formed Board of Directors has re-established the B Buzz Baseball League and are seeking to build character and virtue through the game of baseball to the youth of the Lee Harvard/Warrensville Hts. Communities.
