Locos Express is a youth select baseball program with teams from 13U to 17U of age. Express draws from Northwest Ohio and is located in Lima, Ohio. Currently our program enrolls over 90 players from Northwest Ohio representing over 38 school systems. We are the official youth baseball program of the Lima Locos (Summer Collegiate Team) and are a non-profit organization.

Our focus is on the development of our areas youth baseball players for age groups 13 through 17 in ages. The Locos Express program provides the best players in Northwest Ohio the opportunity to play for their area verses having to leave their community and play in a major metropolitan city over the summer. It is our goal that we may provide the instruction, exposure and professional development so that Express players can make an impact on their high school teams at the earliest possible age and play the game of baseball at the next level if they so choose after their high school career.

 The success of the Locos Express will not be measured in wins or losses or championships achieved. Success will be measured on our eventual list of alumni players that have fulfilled their dreams of playing college baseball or beyond. The sport of baseball has become, in many ways, an expensive sport for young players striving to follow the path to higher levels. Our organization is a non-profit organization and establishes the lowest possible summer fee structure for our players. In many cases our fee structure is 2-3 times lower than similar organizations and is made possible with help from our communities.

In order to keep our fee structures as low as possible we initiate various fundraising projects for our youth players and solicit corporate sponsors and service organizations for their support. Our organization is a non-profit organization with all proceeds going directly to supporting our youth program.
