The Canes Great Lakes Baseball, formerly the Michiana Scrappers, is a youth based organization that began with a vision in 2005 and has evolved into 20 teams on the baseball side (9U, 10U, 11U, 12U, 13U, 14U, 15U, 16U, 17U & 18U).

In 2021 Canes Baseball approached our organization to join there team and Canes Great Lakes was established.  Canes Baseball has over 2000 college commitments, 250 MLB draftees and 50+ current MLB players.

Our sister organization is our Michiana Lady Scrappers that came into existence in 2014.  The Lady Scrappers currently have 5 teams (12U, 13U, 14U and 16U).

Our goal is not to win at all cost, but a shared philosophy amongst all coaches to teach each player how to be grown young men & women and mature through the game of baseball and/or softball, while also preparing them on the field to compete at a high level.  If you have a passion to play and learn at a high level and are not afraid of failure then this is the place for you.
