Illinois Baseball Academy
Chris Beacom is the founder and President of Illinois Baseball Academy (IBA).  A native of Winnetka, he currently lives in Wilmette with his wife and three children.  His passion for baseball and child development led him to create IBA in 2005.  This business was built from the ground up – starting in a church gym.  Now IBA serves more than 2,000 children, ages 4 – 18, each year.  Recently, Chris helped to develop two indoor baseball facilities (The Yard in Northfield, and The Dome in Rosemont).

Chris’ vision for IBA is “to grow the game of baseball and develop the leaders of tomorrow . . . to re-pay those who have gone before us by teaching proper fundamentals and instilling core values in the players of today.”  His philosophy is to work hand in hand with community associations and park districts and to fully support community-based baseball programming.
