Traveling Baseball & Softball ProgramsFor those seeking a more competitive program, IGH Baseball Association and the IGH Softball Federation offers a traveling program for players and families that would like to travel to other communities to play at a higher level than the in-house Parks & Recreation leagues. The traveling programs are geared towards those athletes and families that are dedicated to playing baseball/softball and requires a higher level of commitment. Playing time may not be equal and coaches at the traveling level begin to exercise the coaching of position players to provide the greatest strength to the team.
