Returning Major League Players should not attend tryouts.
** Your child must be registered for the 2018 spring season to tryout.  **


Please bring your glove and wear sneakers.
We also recommend you bring your own bat and helmet.
Only USA Bat Standard or wood bats will be permitted.

All players should plan on attending both weeks of tryouts. No player will be drafted onto a Major League team without attending the tryouts. The Major League program requires a significant time commitment from both players and coaches.


A Note to Parents/Players Trying Out for the Majors

The Majors are the most competitive level of baseball during our spring season.  This means that the best players on a team will play the majority of the game (within Little League guidelines mandating that each player must play a minimum of 3 innings in the field with corresponding at-bats).  And, while every coach continues to work on player development and the fundamentals of baseball, teams are fielded to win games.

Typically, on a 12-man roster, the six best players will play the complete game and the remaining six, regardless of age (10-, 11- or 12-year-old), will alternate three innings of play and three innings on the bench. That said, there are many circumstances where those players alternating innings will get more playing time: absences, vacations and/or out-competing another player at a certain position.

We always encourage players to try-out since, in most cases, playing baseball at this level of competition improves a player’s skills.  Should this be inconsistent with your expectations for your child’s Little League experience, however, you may want to consider remaining at the AAA level.

Thank you,
Walpole Little League
