Crystal Lake Little League Baseball was formed in 2011 as a result of the merger of Continental Little League and Crystal Lake American Little League. Crystal Lake Little League Baseball is the only organization in Crystal Lake chartered by Little League International, and eligible to compete in the Little League World Series.

The objective of Crystal Lake Little League Baseball is to instill in the children of the community the ideals of good sportsmanship, honesty, loyalty, courage and respect. By advocating these virtues the Crystal Lake Little League Baseball program is designed to develop well adjusted, stronger and happier children that will grow to be superior citizens.
