Baseball Tryouts are Saturday!

Baseball tryouts are set!

Baseball Tryouts for Minors and Majors divisions

Saturday, March 12 at Zia Little League Field, 501 Elizabeth St SE, in Albuquerque.

-WHO MUST ATTEND:

Tryouts are mandatory for baseball players who are league-age 9-12. “League age” refers to your child’s age on Aug. 31, 2022. All baseball players who will be 9 years old by Aug. 31 must attend.

Any child who is league age 8 and wants to play in the Minors Baseball Division must also attend Tryouts.

The Tryouts on March 12 WILL ONLY BE FOR BASEBALL PLAYERS in the Minors & Majors Divisions. Tryouts are NOT for softball, Tee Ball, Rookies (coach pitch), or teenage divisions.

FAQs:

Many parents—especially those who are new to Little League—ask what EMLL’s Tryouts are all about. Here are a few basics to help you and your child:

-WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT:

We will start checking in at 12:45 p.m. for 11 & 12 year olds; 9 & 10 year olds, and any 8 year olds who want to play up, will start at 2:30 p.m. Players will run the bases, field ground balls and fly balls, throw, and bat.

-WHAT TO BRING:

Your child does not have to wear a baseball uniform (though it’s OK if they want to), but they should dress appropriately to run around and play ball: athletic shoes or rubber cleats (metal cleats are not allowed), baseball pants or loose-fitting pants like sweatpants, etc., and don’t forget about the weather! Please dress your child appropriately for whatever curveball Mother Nature may throw! Your child should bring their baseball glove. If they have their own baseball helmet, it’s OK to bring that; if your child brings his own bat it MUST BE A USA BAT. And don’t forget to have your child bring water or something to drink!

-TRYOUTS ARE NOT ABOUT “MAKING THE TEAM”!

Tryouts are only to evaluate skill level. Parents often ask us, “What if my child doesn’t have a good tryout, will he still make a team?” Although the term “tryout” implies that your child may or may not make the team, that’s not what Little League tryouts are about. In Little League EVERYONE MAKES THE TEAM!
