  1. On Tuesday, March 24, tryouts will be for PITCHERS AND CATCHERS ONLY!  If you do not pitch or catch, you do not have to show up.


  1. For all of tryouts, we will attempt to get outside, even if it is just in a parking lot, so dress accordingly.


  1. The dress code for tryouts is baseball pants preferred, if not, warm-ups or sweatpants, NO SHORTS.  Bring a hat, long-sleeved shirts for pitchers, glove, bat (if you own one), sneakers, and cleats (no metal spikes). Also, if you can, wear a shirt with your name on it. 


7.     Tryouts will be based on a physical fitness test (shuttle run, base running sprint, mile, push-ups, and sit-ups) and each player will be assessed on their throwing, fielding, hitting, and attitude.  An evaluation form will be given to each player at the end of tryouts.


  1. The players will be asked to tryout at their best position in the field.  We cannot have players changing positions during tryouts unless asked by a coach.  Pitchers will have their own date to throw (March 24).
