Letter to Spring 2018 families (Player Evaluations on 1/13/2018)

Thank you to all of our Spring 2018 participants.  We are pleased to have near record numbers in baseball and strong numbers across all divisions in both baseball and softball.  Below is information about the upcoming Player Evaluations (tryouts), team selections, opening day ceremonies, and Dick’s Sporting Goods discount days.  The player composition of Little league divisions is determined by both skill level and then by a player’s “League Age” as determined by Little League.  Use the following links to determine what “league age” your baseball or softball player may be: 

    Tryouts / Player Evaluations - Baseball and Softball: Saturday, January 13th, 2018

    All players league age 7-12 must participate in Player Evaluations (tryouts) this weekend to be eligible to play at Bayshore this spring.  The evaluation will be a factor in determining the appropriate division for your child.  The only exceptions are baseball Majors boys League Age 12 that were on a Majors team in Spring of 2017…they will remain on the same team for 2018.  Baseball league age 6 year olds are encouraged to tryout if they would like to be considered for Minor C.  Otherwise, they will be allocated to the Farm division (Tee ball/Pee-wee division).  Softball league age 6 year olds may tryout out with the appropriate age group and time for Softball listed below.  

    “Playing up a division”:  if your baseball player wants to play in a division higher than where he would normally play for his age, he will need to tryout twice.  Once with the older age group and then again with his actual age group.  For example, a league age 10 year old wanting to play in the Majors division (typically 11s & 12s) would need to tryout with the 11 year olds AND the 10 year olds.  A league age 8 wanting to play Minor A, must tryout with 8 year olds and also with the 9 year olds.  No exceptions.

    Please show up at least 15 minutes early to check in, get your player’s evaluation number, and warm up.  You must check in at the field you will be trying out.  The fields and times are listed below.   For anyone unable to attend Saturday, makeup tryouts will be held on Tuesday, January 16th beginning at 6:00pm.  Specific times will be announced on Monday.
