Player Evaluation
A player evaluation event is held following registration and prior to teams being formed. All players 8 and older wanting to play in Farm, Minors, Majors, and 13-14, sign up for a short time-slot (sign-ups will open 2 weeks prior) during the announced evaluation days where they will take part in a short evaluation of throwing, catching, and hitting. Registered coaches are present and use the evaluations as a basis to form competitive and balanced teams. T-Ball and Rookie divisions do not use player evaluations as a basis for the generation of teams and those teams are formed randomly.

Player evaluation will include:
  • 5 fly balls and throw to 2nd base
  • 5 ground balls and throw to 1st base
  • 5 hits off a pitching machine, on the 5th hit, run the bases to 3rd
