Desert League Early Bird Registration Options

Register now or put down a deposit to lock in the early bird pricing!

Option 1
Five-Day Training Camp Guarantee – This option is only available to the first 50 players that register. Each player will be guaranteed a full five days in camp. This will give you plenty of time to impress the coaches and hopefully earn a roster spot.
  • $399 fee for returning Desert League players or players with previous pro experience.
  • $599 fee for players without any professional experience. Players are responsible for their own travel and housing expenses.
  • $200 deposit holds your spot at training camp and locks in early bird fee.

Please contact the league for hotel and flight information. Players should fly into Phoenix Sky Harbor Airport. We will provide transportation from the airport to the hotel.

Option 2
Extended training camp and Desert League Developmental League. This 21-day option includes housing. The first five days players will attend training camp for a chance to make a Desert League team. After training camp if the player does not make a team, rather than being released and sent home, the player will be assigned to our developmental league where they will practice and/or play daily in a professional environment and have a chance to be “called up” to our professional (paid) league. This offers players their best chance to get their foot in the door of professional baseball. If a player gets hurt or is released Desert League managers will be required to replace that player with a player from the developmental league. Your housing is included in the price $1999. Local players not requiring housing fee is $1000.
  • $1999 – Extended camp/Developmental League
  • $500 deposit to lock in early bird fee – Extended camp/Developmental League
There will be no refunds for any reason unless the player is signed by a Major League Baseball organization prior to the start of training camp Jan 15, 2018.
Last year we signed over 100 players to their first professional contract and over 50 of those players have advanced to professional summer leagues.
Players please feel free to call league president Luke Powell with any question 619 838 6558.
