Draft Day / Tryout Requirements
Paperwork: At the draft, you will fill out a Registration form. If you are picked up by a team, you will have to sign a medical waiver to play.
Physical: You are the judge of your own physical fitness, and the League will assume no liability for any injuries resulting from play (that's what the waiver is for).
Bats: We currently use either wood or metal bats, although we are considering switching to all wood. Your team will likely have plenty of bats for you to use. The League will provide bats at the draft.
Draft Process: Players will be separated by age group. Current managers will watch as participants take infield/outfield, bat, and (optionally) pitch. Teams make their selections and notify the people they've drafted directly, usually that evening. Anyone not selected will be kept on the "Available" list for managers to use later in the season if roster slots open up.
Skills: If you've been playing softball, your defensive skills and footwork should be OK. Batting and throwing are a different matter. Practice at a batting cage often. Older guys: Watch out for arm soreness and/or injury when throwing, if you haven't picked up a regulation baseball in a while. Remember, we are on full-size fields with 90-foot baselines, not the smaller softball fields. Throws are longer (especially for catchers and 3rd basemen!).
