Founded in 1940, Monsignor Matthias Butala built St. Joseph’s Park bringing recreational and sports facilities to the surrounding community and the parishioners to share his love of baseball with the city’s youth.  Today, St. Joe’s Park Pony Baseball has grown from only a handful of young boys in 1940 to more than 400 boys and girls today.  Children from communities such as Joliet, Crest Hill, Plainfield, Shorewood, Minooka, Channahon, Elwood, New Lenox and Romeoville all play at St. Joe’s because of the high level of competition and tradition in which the league is known for.  

St. Joseph’s Park Pony Baseball is a 501 (c) 3 nonprofit organization and your donation is tax deductible.  Our federal tax identification number is 36-3280741.
