2023 SPRING REGISTRATION FOR RETURNING 2022 SPRING PLAYERS AND SIBLINGS

(Open Registration will begin in January 2023 - attempting to register early will result in moving to the end of the Waitlist)

2023 Spring Baseball and Softball

  • November 1, 2022:  Returning Player Registration for Spring 2023 opens for Returning Players and any siblings of Returning Players from the Spring 2022 Season.

If you are a Returning Spring 2022 Family, please check you email for the registration link.  This link is for Returning Spring 2022 families only.  If you believe you should have received a link but didn't, please email registration@wppachicago.org

  • January 3, 2023:  New Player and Fall Ball player Registration for Spring of 2023 open on January 3, 2023.  Please note that playing Fall Ball only in 2022 does not count as a Returning Player registrant.
  • The Spring Season is for all age levels except Liberty Baseball (which registration happens separately - see below).  Age Requirements can be found here.
    • Baseball: Rookie, Junior, Minor, Major and Senior
    • Softball: 8U, 10U, 12U and 14U
  • Due to high league demand at most age levels, New Players registering may be placed on a Wait List.  Registration is on a first come, first served basis.
    • If you are put in the Wait List, please do not reach out to WPPA to get your status on the list.  We will reach out to you if a spot opens up for your player.
  • The Spring Season runs from mid-April (practices start) and concludes in mid-July.  The season ending celebration and picnic is typically the Saturday following the final games.  The exact schedule for the season will be released in February once park district field allocation is distributed to WPPA.

A link to register via TeamSnap will be posted on this page (and on the WPPA Home Page) when they go live.

Fall Baseball and Softball

  • Registration is now closed.
  • Age Requirements are available on the website.
  • An 8-game season will begin in late August and run through mid to late October (weather dependent).
  • Practices are completely optional (for most teams there are not any) and the idea of fallball is to have a bit of fun with the game and be out there with friends.
  • Teams can be formed to allow players to "play with" friends.  This is accomplished by working with a volunteer coach and having that coach form the team.  The coach will provide their roster to the Fall Baseball Commissioner or Fall Softball Commissioner once it is formulated.  Players do not request coaches during registration.  If a coach only has a partial team of players/friends, that is okay - the commissioners will complete the teams with at-large players that are available.
  • If you are from a neighboring park and want to play in WPPA Fallball, you are more than welcome!  Please reach out to the Fall Baseball or Fall Softball commissioner to learn more about the registration process.

Liberty Baseball

  • Registration opens in May of each year.
  • This is for baseball players aged between 15 and 20.
  • There are no practices.
  • Typically 3 games per week, with one game on either Tuesday/Wednesday (5:30pm) and two games with one on each weekend day of Saturday and Sunday (3:00pm or 5:30pm).
  • Season starts in early June and runs through the first full week of August.
  • For more questions on Liberty baseball, reach out to the league commissioner at liberty@wppachicago.org.
