Major Rookie - 2017 Major Rookie Tryouts & Scheduling Update
Submitted By Kent Weber on Saturday, March 18, 2017
All players born 2008, living within the boundary (check the homepage) are invited to tryout for 2017 MajorRookie TinCaps.   

Updated Tryout Details below . . .


    What a great turnout (and depth chart) we have!  Please continue to wear the same shirt/number/hat you wore to the first tryout, and avoid TinCaps gear. (exception: Helmet stickers)  And thanks in advance for flexibility going forward in adapting to unpredictable weather and moving-target scheduling.  We need to finalize our team (12 players) by mid-April, so please stay closely tuned to this website for updates.  I will try and loosely forecast our hoped-for weather-friendly outdoor dates in advance, and cancel mid-day the day of, via this page/email, if it is too wet or cold.  Generally early-season week night start times will be at 5:30pm and weekend attempts may vary.  

    Next Tryout:  Tue March 28, 20176PM - 8PM Batting Cages @ CentreField Sports
         - Hard Indoor Date, not weather dependent
         - cost: $5 (for this night only)
         - Bring helmet (if you have one) and a bat if you prefer, thought
         - We are splitting the group in half.   
            - Player Last Name A - K  6pm-7pm    
            - Player Last Name L - Z   7pm-8pm
     
    FYI, our projected summer schedule is firming up, and the following should provide a flavor:    
     
    Weekly Schedule (May through August)
    On “Average", TinCaps 2017 Major Rookie baseball is a 3+ times a week commitment, most often involving a Tuesday and Thursday evening game or practice (6-8pm) and one weekend practice or game.  Occasional away games (greater London) may be on other week nights.  Additional (and optional) batting cage time will also be available.  Our home field (for games and practice) is Oakridge Upper at 825 Valetta.  Our allotted weekend practice time is Saturday 12noon - 2pm.  Though for the 17 Saturdays between May through August, we’ll be at tournaments for 5 of them, playing games for perhaps 2-3 others, and moving practice to 10am and/or location for a few others if scheduled tournaments allow or require.  
     
    Summer Schedule:  
    - approximately 24 league games 
    - approximately 4-6 exhibition games (Saturday single or double-headers instead of practice, mostly in London)
    - 5 weekend tournaments
