Vipers Baseball and Softball


Looking for an opportunity for your child to experience a unique team with excellent coaches and making new friends? Franklin Park Vipers provides a youth baseball and softball program for ages 5-17 years old for residents of Franklin Park and the surrounding communities. The Vipers organization has been a proud affiliate of the Park District of Franklin Park for over fifteen years. Our players have a unique opportunity to utilize an indoor training facility that Vipers players can use for free, once they are registered. The training facility has two batting cages and an open area for throwing and pitching, hitting. Experienced players can focus on enhancing their pitching, hitting and game knowledge while newer players can focus on fundamentals. Indoor clinics and practices start after registration and will continue until the weather permits us to practice outside (April 1). Our season runs from mid-April to the end of June, consisting of 16-18 games. Every season we look for ways of improving and with volunteer help, we can accomplish these goals. Registration for the 2017 season will be held at the practice facility located at 4045 Tugwell Street in Franklin Park.
