REGISTRATIONS ARE NOW BEING ACCEPTED FOR THE 2015 TP HOUSE LEAGUE BASEBALL SEASON AT CHRISTIE PITS, BICKFORD PARK & ART EGGLETON PARK ; SIGN UP BY FEBRUARY 13 AND SAVE $15 PER REGISTRANT WITH OUR LIMITED TIME EARLY BIRD REGISTRATION OFFER
The Toronto Playgrounds Baseball Committee is now accepting registrations for the 2015 House League Baseball Season.
Taking into account such factors as higher equipment costs and the user fees charged by the City of Toronto for the use of the baseball diamonds at Christie Pits, Bickford Park and Art Eggleton Park, there will be a $15.00 increase in the player registration fee for all of our six age classifications for the upcoming season.
As is customary, the Committee did everything possible in its power to minimize the projected increase in order to continue its tradition of making the house league baseball experience affordable to all children and families who desire to play baseball within our community.
All interested Parents and Players are advised that the Committee is offering an Early Bird Registration Fee Incentive for the upcoming house league season whereby one can save $15.00 per player on the 2015 registration fee if a completed registration form with payment is filed by Friday, February 13.
Here are the 2015 TP House League Baseball Registration Fees for our six age classifications [with the Early Bird Discount Fees (effective until February 13) in parenthesis]:
- TEE BALL (2008-2011) > $135.00 [Early Bird Fee is $120.00]
- ROOKIE BALL (2006-2007) > $135.00 [Early Bird Fee is $120.00]

The Committee is planning to schedule a series of In Person Registration Sessions. Dates, times and venue information will be posted once details have been finalized.
With the overwhelming popularity of our respective house league baseball offerings, the Committee strongly urges all interested parents and players to register early to guarantee a placement in our program. ALL roster spots in our six age groups will be filled on a first come, first serve basis. Once all the available roster openings have been filled in a designated age category, any additional registrants will be put on a sequential waiting list in the event an opening becomes available.
The divisions for our house league and the corresponding years of birth are set out above. If you’d like to register your child in a division other than the one listed for their year of birth, please contact us at [email protected] to discuss it before completing the form.
Our popular Tee Ball program is moving to our new “two-diamond” home at Art Eggleton Park (see website for details). The TP Baseball Committee is offering both a Junior Tee Ball (2010-2011) and Senior Tee Ball (2008-2009) for the 2015 season. We feel that this will provide an even more enjoyable experience for our tee ball players, who will be participating with others at the same level of experience and skill. Tee ball will again be offered on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays this season.
There will also again be two divisions of Rookie Ball (2006-2007) – one playing Mondays and practising Wednesdays and the other playing Wednesdays and practising Mondays. Please rank Tee Ball days as 1, 2, 3 in order of preference and Rookie Ball days as 1 and 2 in order of preference when you fill out your registration form.
In both the Tee Ball and Rookie Ball divisions the spaces in the divisions will be assigned on a first-come first-served basis. There are obviously only a certain number of spots available in each division.
If you have any questions, please contact us at [email protected] and we will respond to your query as expeditiously as possible.
