Home of the Indiana Bandits

Welcome to the Indiana Bandits

          You've discovered the home of one of Indiana's finest youth select baseball clubs under the direction of the Bandits Youth Foundation, Inc.  Bandits Baseball  is in its 19th year of providing high level training for players ages 8 to 18.  The Bandits organization and its dedicated coaches and volunteers are focused on not just total player development but total person development.  The number one goal of the Bandits is to field high-level competitive baseball teams full of skilled, hardworking and motivated young boys and men who represent the Bandits, their families and themselves with honor and integrity – both on and off the field.  This is "The Bandits Difference."

          Teaching and playing baseball at a high level has allowed well over 100 former Bandits players to sign college commitments and play baseball at the collegiate level.  Bandits players have played for some of the top athletic and academic institutions throughout the county including Indiana University, Purdue University, University of Michigan, University of Missouri, Ohio State University, University of Louisville, University of Mississippi and Yale University.  Many of those players later went on to play professionally.  Feel free to browse our site and contact us if you should have any questions.  Discover "The Bandits Difference."


Although tryouts for the upcoming 2014-2015 Season are complete for the 8u - 14u teams, there are a few roster openings for our 9u team and one available roster spot for our 12u American team.  If you are interested in being on our 9u team, please contact David Chamberlain (317) 997-6689 dberlin32@yahoo.com for details.  If you are interested in being on our 12u American team, please contact Alex Stanley (317) 319-2829 alex.Stanley@psiusa.com for details.

The Bandits are Proud to Partner with Accelerated Rehabilitation for Sports Medicine **UPDATED WITH DATES/TIMES**

          The Bandits are excited to announce a new partnership with Accelerated Rehabilitation for the upcoming 2014-2015 season.  Accelerated Rehabilitation is an industry leader in providing people of all ages with cutting-edge sports medicine and physical therapy.  The Bandits are committed to ensuring that all of its players have a long and healthy career in baseball.  Accelerated Rehabilitation shares in that goal and has agreed to become the Bandits official sports medicine provider.

          For the 2014-2015 season, Accelerated Rehabilitation will provide each Bandits player, free of cost, with a throwing mechanics evaluation.  Using state of the art computer technology, each Bandits player will receive slow-motion video breakdown of their entire throwing motion with point by point identification of areas of concern relating to each player’s throwing mechanics and their risk of future injury.  Accelerated Rehabilitation will then recommend whatever changes to a player’s throwing mechanics that are necessary to best ensure a long and healthy playing career.  In addition, every Bandits player (and their immediate family) is entitled to a free orthopedic evaluation for any sports related injury at any of Accelerated Rehabilitation’s Central Indiana locations.  That’s “The Bandits Difference.”

Ricky's Going to Disney

By Joe Hollis

Ricky received several MVP nominations from two Game Day USA tournaments, which led him to be chosen to play in the All-Star tournament in Fishers, Indiana in August of this year. Ricky’s All-Star team comprised of kids from Ohio, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, Illinois & Indiana went on to WIN the championship game. They all received a tournament championship ring for their incredible effort, skill and hard work! Game Day USA Representatives were at this All-Star tournament to evaluate the players and prepare the nominations of those who would then receive “THE INVITATION” to PLAY in the 2014 Disney New Year’s Baseball Classic at the Wide World of Sports Complex in Orlando, FL!

Ricky (and 169 others) has been selected from over 1,900 baseball players to attend and play. Congratulations Ricky!!!
