UPDATE: Because those awesome Seahawks will be playing Sunday in the NFC Championship Game we have postponed our batting and pitching/catching sessions to Feb. 8. Same times, same place. See details below. Please help spread the word to anyone you know who is planning to attend. Thank you.
Kirkland Pony Baseball holds tryouts to make every effort to achieve competitive balance and assure a positive experience for all. There is no pressure; this is just an opportunity for coaches to get a feel for each player’s abilities. Everyone who signs up will be placed on a team or added to a waiting list if there are not enough players to complete an additional team.
Players are expected to attend at least one hitting and one fielding/running tryout session. If you are interested in pitching or catching you should attend a pitching tryout.
Be sure to bring appropriate gear, including layered clothing for outdoor sessions. All sessions will be on artificial turf, so wear appropriate shoes and no metal cleats.
Player drafts will be held shortly after tryouts. Team meetings will be scheduled starting around Feb. 13.
