Tryouts for T-ball winter workouts will be held Sunday October 26, 2014 on Field 2. These workouts are intended to prepare players for next season and for allstar play next year.
Who should attend? Players who have displayed at or above average skills during recreational GMBL t-ball play as well as a partner such as a parent/guardian/coach who would be willing to participate in selected drills.
When? Tryouts will be on Sunday, October 26, 2014 in 30 minute blocks from 2-4pm. Rain date will be November 2, 2014. You must schedule a tryout time with the coordinator. Workouts will be a blend of weekends (as much as possible) and during a consistent night of the week (if gym time on weekends cannot be obtained).
Where? Tryouts will be at GMBL (E.G. Smith Complex) on a field to be determined. The winter drills will be held with a blend of outdoor (weather permitting) and indoor (local gymnasium) locations.
Why are there tryouts? Due to spatial constraints of the workout facility and the drills being performed, we must limit the amount of players for the workouts.
How will players be chosen? A panel of coaches will evaluate players and compile a list for invitation to the workouts (Note: There are no guarantees that a player will be selected). Tryouts will consist of batting, fielding ground balls, fielding fly balls, throwing, and running bases.
Is there a cost? At this time, the expected cost will be $100 for a minimum of 10 weeks of workouts to cover gymnasium rental fees.
Equipment: Each player must bring his/her own baseball equipment. Players should bring a glove, bat, cleats, turf or tennis shoes, hat, helmet and any other equipment they feel necessary to compete.

This fall GMBL will begin fundraising efforts to raise money for the installation of lights on field 4. The quote from Musco lighting is just over $100,000, however, if we can raise half, we can then submit an application to Major League Baseball and hopefully, receive a grant for the remainder. We will post the status of our fundraising efforts and update it weekly.
