Majors Tryout Information:

The Majors is a division for higher skilled 10-12 year old players and is highly competitive baseball. Players should only tryout if they are interested in playing in this competitive division. Players are not required to tryout to play in the 2016 season; they only need tryout to be considered for the Majors. Any player that does not tryout or is not selected for a Majors team will be placed on an age appropriate AA/AAA division team for the 2016 season.

Tryouts for our 2016 Majors division will be held on Saturday 9/26, Sunday 9/27 & Saturday 10/3 (rain date 10/4). Tryout times are from 10:00 to 12:00 each day and are limited to the first 40 players at each tryout. Players are put in groups of ten for tryouts with the first ten registering at the field in the morning going first, next ten second, etc. Players need only attend one tryout to be eligible to be selected for a Major division team. All players must be registered in the registration system prior to tryouts in order to participate in the tryouts.
