Below is our revised evaluation schedule for evaluations.  Please attend the evaluation for your players age group.  All players ages 7-13 are required to attend only 1 evaluation.  This ensures a competitive balance and will be more fun for the players.  Ages 4-6 will not attend evaluations.

 All Evaluations will take place at Shelby Park.  Enter through the gate closest to the train tracks.  

All coaches and volunteers will wear a mask when they are unable to socially distance.  Players are not required to wear a facial covering.

Once evaluations are completed on Thursday 2/25 we will be closing registration so we can determine the number of teams for each age group and setting head and assistant coaches. Only 1 coach per team will attend Draft Day. Draft day is scheduled for Saturday 2/27 and after that date rosters will be finalized, uniforms will be ordered, and practice will begin the week of March 1st.

Ages 7-8 Rookie: $165

What equipment is needed?
1. Fielding glove - Required
2. Batting helmet - Required - these cannot be shared!
3. Batting gloves - These are not a must, but we will do a lot of swinging so this can help prevent blisters. 
4. Bat* - While a bat is not required, it is recommended that each player have their own bat.  
*Sharing gear is prohibited see COVID Safety Protocols.

Practice Attire
1. Pants, not shorts: Players should wear baseball pants or other pants that do not have metal in the legs.  This is so they are able to slide.  Do not wear shorts or jeans! 
2. Cleats: While cleats are not required, it will be very difficult without these. Players cannot wear metal cleats. 
3. Baseball hat: Every player should wear a hat to all practices.  This is an expectation at all age levels.  
4. There will be no “uniforms” for the Fall Skills Camp. 

What are the Bat rules for the 2021 Season?
All bats must have USA Baseball stamp and the barrel cannot exceed 2 5/8 inches.  2 ¾ inch barrels will not be allowed. 
Please be aware that post-season competition will have varying bat rules. If you want to purchase a bat that will be allowed for all competition, purchase USA Baseball 2-5/8s and no larger.

Can my child wear metal cleats?
No metal cleats
