The STL Naturals Baseball Club was established in 2011 to provide the premier environment in the
St. Louis area for youth and high-school baseball players. Lance Schuermann and TJ Mathews saw a need for a
club to provide lower-cost/higher effort training to its players. As such, the Naturals have brought in
highly experienced coaches, most playing a minimum of college baseball, and several seeing playing time in the
minors and MLB.
The Naturals high school level teams are playing extensively in showcase and exposure tournaments with the goal
of graduating as many players as possible into the next level - college baseball. The season for our high school
teams starts in early Winter for extensive indoor training, and later after high school ball is finished our
summer season begins! Our youth teams begin at age 10 and continue through age 14. We have multiple teams at
13U and 14U, and our teams play from the AA level all the way through USSSA Major. Like the high school teams,
our youth teams begin workouts in early Winter, and continue all the way through Summer. We provide several
guest instructors at our Winter training sessions, such as current MLB coaches and players.
Most Naturals teams play in multiple tournaments both in the St. Louis area as well as out-of-town locations.
We feel that our youth coaches are ABSOLUTELY committed to providing the most comprehensive instruction
available in Missouri and we thank you for following us this season!
