Children registered for Minors/Majors Baseball (ages 9, 10, 11 & 12 by May 1st) and 10U & 12U softball are required to be evaluated to help with team placement. Rookie age boys (6, 7, 8 by May 1st) can “play up” into Minors by evaluating in the top 30% of those players. Evaluations will occur in the BMS gym and will consist of fielding, hitting, pitching and catcher drills that will last 30 to 45 minutes. At drop off, parents will need to review and sign their child’s medical release form that will be kept with their child’s coach throughout the season.
