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. 12.
Here’s the schedule:

The evening will feature fun, music and a silent auction. We hope you can come and help support these terrific young men.
Here’s another way you can help: Bring in this flyer on Tuesday, July 28, and Acropolis Pizza and Pasta will donate 15 percent of your purchase to the Lux 16U KBC All-Stars.
