Thank you for visiting the official website of the Mascoutah Athletic Commission, a 501(c)(3) organization. Since 2014, we have been honored to be a part of improving youth athletics in Mascoutah, Illinois. While most of our projects consist of designing and constructing ball fields at Scheve Park, we are also deeply devoted to the benevolence of other Mascoutah-based programs, providing logistical and financial support to those entities.

In the Spring and Summer of 2012 and 2013 the baseball and softball infields in Mascoutah’s City Park (Scheve Park) were virtually unplayable after any weather event brought more than a light rain. The infields retained much of the water due to improper drainage and uneven playing surfaces. This in turn, caused an increasing amount of Khoury League youth baseball and softball games and practices to be canceled. In those two years alone, there were an estimated 30 canceled games each year. This was extremely disappointing to the youth participants and their families because many of the games could not be rescheduled due to the restrictions on the length of the baseball and softball seasons.

Therefore, in July of 2014, a group of parents and volunteers formed the Mascoutah Athletic Commission (MAC), a 501(c)(3) organization.
