MPRA Cal Ripken Baseball Tryouts

***SCHEDULE CHANGE***

 

 

Due to the cold temperatures forecast for tomorrow morning along with the threat of early morning freezing rain, the morning tryout sessions have been rescheduled for Sunday, February 9th, @ 1:00 PM. The afternoon tryout sessions will still be held tomorrow, Saturday, as originally scheduled! Thank you for your patience and flexibility.

Please see the schedule below for your child’s specific tryout day & time.

Your child WILL need to attend tryouts if any of the following apply:

  • Your child did not play at MPRA in the SPRING of 2019.
  • You were notified directly by MPRA that your previous team is being disbanded
  • Your child is in their first year of competitive T-Ball (i.e., did NOT play T-Ball at MPRA in the Spring of 2019 or played in the Developmental T-Ball League last season). If your child is playing in the Developmental T-Ball League this Season, you do NOT need to attend tryouts.
  • Your child is moving up a league from last season (i.e., T-Ball to Rookie, Rookie to Minors, Minors to Majors).
  • Your child wishes to "play up" into a division above their age appropriate division (e.g. Minors 10U wishes to play up to Majors 12U).

IMPORTANT FOR PLAYERS DESIRING TO "PLAY UP": You MUST attend the tryout for the division you desire to be in and it is highly recommended that you ALSO attend the tryout for your age appropriate division unless you are a returning player. This is because play-up slots are NOT guaranteed. Players can only request to "play up" a single division step (e.g. 8U to Minors, 10U to Majors, etc.).

Please Note: Your League Age is the Age your Child will be on April 30th, 2020!

If your child wishes to attend the pitching and/or catching tryout, this session will begin immediately following the early session for each league and prior to the late tryout session for each league (Majors/Minors ONLY)
