Tryouts

LUNADA BAY LITTLE LEAGUE TRYOUTS THIS SATURDAY MORNING, JANUARY 6!!

 

The 2018 season of Lunada Bay Little League baseball gets underway this Saturday with tryouts!  The schedule is below.  Please note a few things:

--- Please consider your child's age to be the "league age" (how old your child will be as of 8/31/18, the Little League cutoff date for age determinations)

--- Only the new, legal bats approved by USA Baseball will be permitted for tryout purposes.  We will have some extras available for those who have not obtained their own bats.

--- Players who will be in T-ball and Farm -- generally players who are league ages 5-7 -- need not try out.  Advanced league age 7 players who would like to be considered for Minors should try out with the 8 year olds.

--- Please note that the schedule below is an estimated schedule.  We will roll forward with the next group of players as soon as the prior group is finished, so we may get ahead of schedule.  Please arrive early.

Play ball!!
