Join us for Spring Thaw Weekend at Read Park in Freeport the weekend of April 28th-30th.
Freeport has 2 venues with 7 well-maintained, lighted fields between them. 4 for the younger age levels at Read Park, and 3 for the older age levels at Taylor Park. Only a short drive from Rockford, and well worth it, as the City of Freeport does a great job of making visitors feel welcome. Read Park is home to Little Wrigley Field.
All teams play 2 pool play games between Friday night and Saturday with Championship Bracket play beginning on Sunday. We try to avoid consolation games whenever possible, but some age levels for some tournaments may have consolation games. Teams can play up to 5 games total in this tournament.
2023 will be our 18th year offering the best youth baseball tournament experience in the Midwest. Between Wisconsin and Illinois, over 1,000 teams played in our tournaments in 2022. In advance of each tournament, our highly regarded customer service department will be there to assist you as needed. Fields are touched up as needed between games and there is an on-site Tournament Director, should you need anything during the weekend. Our best in business website makes following our tournaments easy. All insurance and waiver/roster requirements are done online, to make that process as convenient as possible. We have high-quality umpires, with over 500 potential umpires that officiate our tournament games, no inexperienced or unqualified volunteers calling balls and strikes at our tournaments.
