Returning Major League Players should not attend tryouts.
** Your child must be registered for the 2017 spring season to tryout.  **


Please bring your glove and wear sneakers.

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
