Baseball is a child’s game. Played by both children and adults who can’t let go of their children’s game. As Jim Bouton said, “You spend your life gripping a baseball and in the end you discover it’s the other way around.”

For $60 you can see if you still carry the dream and are good enough to realize it. For just three Jacksons you can take a chance that you are good enough to make money playing baseball.

The newest independent baseball league in the country and the ONLY league that is scheduled to play during the Fall and Winter will be holding tryouts to see if you can keep your dreams alive.

The Desert Baseball League is headquartered in Yuma and will play this September in Yuma, San Luis, Somerton and Imperial County, California. The players will be paid and insured. But most importantly they will move from southern Arizona to professional leagues in the US and Mexico and begin their journey up the baseball ladder.

So put down your baseball cards and pick up your glove and meet coaches and staff of the Desert League of Professional Baseball in Superior that Tuesday afternoon and see if you have what it takes to make your Field of Dreams possible. As they say, you can’t get a hit if you don’t swing the bat.
