Home Plate

The Desert League of Professional Baseball is an independent fall league. The season runs from September until November with each team playing 42 regular season games. All of our players will be paid. No player will pay to play in our league – this is true professional baseball.

We are catering to the first-year pro player. Our goal is to help players get their foot in the door of professional baseball, therefore we have adopted roster rules that require each team to carry 12 rookies. If you are looking for a place to start your professional career look no further. The Desert League is a perfect fit for players that have gone undrafted out of college or players that have been released from pro organizations.
