TRYOUTS

 

BE PREPARED

Due to the large number of boys that tryout for the baseball team, there will

be some good players that get cut.  Being on the team last year is not a

guarantee of making the team this year.  Decisions will be made by what the coaches see during tryouts.

 

 

Tryout Schedule

Tryouts will run from February 20TH to February 24TH.

NOTE:   *****If there is bad weather – dates and times may change.*****

 

On February 20TH , the focus will be on pitchers and catchers.  Any or all

players may attend on the 20th.  The time will be 3:15 – 5:15 regardless of

the weather.

 

On February 21ST , the focus will be on infielders.  Any or all players may

attend on the 21ST .  The time will be 3:15 – 5:15 unless the weather forces

us indoors.  Then the time will be 4:45 – 6:15.

 

On February 22ND , the focus will be on outfielders. Any or all players may

attend on the 22ND.  The time will be 3:15 – 5:15 regardless of the weather.

 

On February  23RD and 24TH, the focus will be on hitting.  The 23RD  will be for

7TH graders.  The time will be 3:15 – 4:45 unless weather forces us indoors.

 list containing the numbers of the players that MAKE the team will be

 emailed out sometime on Sunday February 25TH.
