About the McHenry Cobras

The McHenry Cobras ( are a non-profit full-time travel baseball organization who are directly affiliated with and serving at the direction of the McHenry Baseball Association.  In most years, we field teams at every level from 8U all the way up to 18U.  Our teams are tryout-based and competitive among the best teams in the Midwest.  Our goals on the field are to prepare our players to play in High School and potentially beyond.  More importantly, off the field we aspire to grow these young athletes to be great teammates and give back to the community.

We play our home games at the McHenry VFW from 8U-13U, and other local fields beyond 13U.  Many of our teams play in local and regional tournaments on several weekends throughout the season.  We recently opened our first ever indoor training facility located nearby in Volo, IL.  The indoor facility provides our teams dedicated practice times and our players year-round access to continue to work on their game.


Pitching Instructor - Zach Badgley

We are ecstatic to welcome Coach Zach Badgley as our affiliated pitching instructor for the McHenry Cobras.  Coach Badgley is a 2008 graduate of McHenry West High School.  He is also a graduate of Northern Illinois University where he was a 4 year letter winner and was a captain his junior and senior years (including being the captain of the 2013 NIU Conference championship team).  2023 will mark the 10th year for Coach Badgley in the McHenry Baseball program, and his 9th year as the Varsity Assistant.  While in high school Coach Badgley was a 3 time All-Area selection, a 2 time All-State player, and a member of the 2007 Regional winning Warrior baseball team.  His family includes 11 siblings with 3 brothers who also played Division 1 baseball at NIU.
