Historic Leclaire Field

Leclaire field has been a part of Little League for a long time.


"EGCLLA is a gem for this area.  The little league that I had in my home town folded due to everyone moving to "select" teams.  Now, there is no little league there for the families that cannot afford "select" or have other reasons for not going to a "select" team.  We are lucky here to have EGCLLA."

"Thank you for your time, your commitment to EGCLLA, and your patience.  It is great to see what a good league EGCLLA is for the kids."

"Thanks again for another great season!!"

"Thanks for all your hard work. It has been a great experience and we have truly enjoyed it!"

"They had some good coaches. My grandson had a awesome season."

Great organization. My son has really enjoyed playing little league. Great coaches.

Thanks for giving the kids a great summer experience playing baseball with their friends.
