Join us for Spring Thaw Weekend at the Waukegan Sports Complex the weekend of April 27th-28th.
Waukegan Sports Complex offers 4 very well-maintained fields. Conveniently located between Chicago and Milwaukee, it is an easy drive for most.
All teams play 2 pool play games on 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.
2024 is our 19th year offering the best youth baseball tournament experience in the Midwest. Between Wisconsin and Illinois, nearly 1,200 teams played in our tournaments in 2023.
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 600 potential umpires that officiate our tournament games, no inexperienced or unqualified volunteers calling balls and strikes at our tournaments.
