Player evaluations for the 2022 spring season will be held the first weekend of March at Delridge Playfield. All Mustang and Bronco players must attend and participate in one of the one-hour sessions in order to be assigned to a team.

  • Bronco (12U): Saturday, March 5, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
  • Mustang (10U): Sunday, March 6th, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Often (erroneously) called “tryouts,” Evaluations often raise a lot of questions for parents of players going through them, especially if it’s their first time.

What is the purpose of these “evaluations”?
The primary mission of the our Evaluations sessions is to make a best effort at providing parity among all teams in the Bronco and Mustang divisions. League play is simply more fun for everyone if the teams are all relatively evenly matched, giving everyone a chance to compete for regular season victories and ultimately post-season glory.
How do the evaluations help provide evenly matched teams?
Players are all put through a series of baseball exercises with all of the league coaches observing (It is not as high-pressure a scenario as that might sound!). The coaches grade each player on their performances through the session. Coaches’ evaluation grades are aggregated and distributed to the coaches for use in the draft. Every coach enters the draft with their own observations as well as those aggregated scores, which allows for an even spread of player abilities across all teams.
What should my player bring to evaluations?
Your player should be dressed to play baseball. That is, they should be wearing clothes that allow them to physically move through baseball activities, while also being appropriate for weather conditions.  Your player also needs all their basic baseball tools with them and ready for use.
  • Sweatpants or baseball pants
  • Baseball cleats
  • Baseball cap (important for shielding sun while fielding balls!)
  • Baseball bat (must be certified as meeting USA Baseball bat standard)
  • Batting helmet
  • Baseball glove

Please also assure your player has their own water bottle to stay hydrated and any other equipment they typically use to be successful at playing baseball (batting gloves, extra pads, knee braces, etc.).

And most importantly, remind them to HAVE FUN! The evaluations are not “tryouts”, and every player will be on a roster regardless of how they perform. Enthusiasm can be just as impressive as making solid contact in batting practice!
