Baseball is back in Palm Springs for the 2023 season as the Power Baseball Organization begins its 14th year of the California Winter League.
Opening day is scheduled for Thursday, January 26th, for the 10-team league, with games primarily being held at Palm Springs Stadium. Opening day showcases every team, including two games at Palm Springs Stadium. The British Columbia Bombers and the Washington Blue Sox face off at 10 a.m. Followed by a battle between the Manitoba North Stars and the Palm Springs Chill at 12:30 p.m.
Over 200 players from around the world will come to Palm Springs to compete this winter. Each team plays upwards of 20 games from when the season kicks off on January 26th to when it concludes on February 19th. All stadium games will be live, and free to stream on YouTube.
On average, 40% of California Winter League players receive a professional contract during or following the season. The CWL saw three alumni make their Major League debut in 2022: Logan Gillaspie with the Orioles, Bubby Rossman with the Phillies, and Luke Barker with the Brewers.
General admission for games is $10, and parking at both the pavilion and library is always free.
