Jim Harelson Scholarship Announcement

This scholarship was developed and funded by the family of Jim Harelson, in his memory.  Jim was a coach in the Forest Lake Baseball program for many years and left a lasting impression on the community and many of the players he helped to develop.  Jim and Marge both believe in providing a positive experience for the players, as well as developing skills.  The family would like to remove some of the financial barriers to play travel baseball.  If you are seeking financial assistance to cover 50% of your registration fees, please complete this form and send to   Since we have limits on the number of participants that can receive the scholarship, the executive committee for the Forest Lake Baseball association will review applications and notify the parents in advance if the scholarship has been awarded.  

The application is due by March 1st.  Please do not register for the upcoming traveling season until you hear about the scholarship application.
