For those interested in tryouts who have not yet signed up, you can just show up a few minutes early this evening and we will sign up your child manually. Tryouts are on Field 2.
We are now taking sign-ups for the 2015 Smithville Diamonds 9-10 year old All Star team tryouts. As in years past, we are offering an All-Star team for kids who are interested in trying out, who want to continue playing baseball beyond our regular season. There will be 3 to 4 tournaments through the end of July with the first one being our own annual tournament June 19th - 21st.
We will hold tryouts Tuesday evening June 2nd at 6 pm on Field 2. The team will be selected based on their performance at the tryout and feedback from the player's coaches.
Joining a baseball All-Star team is a big commitment by both the player and parents. There is a financial commitment and a time commitment. The financial commitment will be dependent on several things (number of tournaments played and cost per tournament, uniform cost, sponsorships, etc). Be prepared to spend between $125 and $200 for your child to participate if they are selected and if they choose to play. The time commitment will be 1 to 2 practices per week on week nights, and 3 to 4 weekends (tournaments) from the middle of June through the end of July. All tournaments will be close enough to drive without requiring a hotel stay overnight. The games will be on both Saturday and Sunday of the tournament weekend. There will possibly be games on Friday evening too from time to time but we try to avoid these when possible.
So we can track the number of players registering and so we have good contact information, we are doing our signups online through our league system. Please click thislinkto sign-up your child for tryouts or click on the link on the home page.
We are planning on making up the Monday, May 11th rain-out day and potentially other rain-outs we have through next Thursday June 4th (if needed).
The make-up day will be Saturday June 6th. We will publish the schedule to the website next Thursday evening (June 4th). Games will begin in the AM.
The following teams were affected will make up games from the May 11th rain-out so please plan on having your child available to play on June 6th. If more rain-outs occur through Thursday June 4th, we will add them to our make-up schedule as needed.
Note: 11-13 teams are not listed above as we made up both 11-13 rainouts during the last make up day.
Concession Duty: Padres will have concession duty on Saturday June 6th. Your coach will be in touch to coordinate shifts. If we are rained out again through June 4th, the team scheduled for concession duty during the rained out games will be responsible for concession duty on the 6th as well.
Tryouts for the 7-8 year old Smithville All-Star team will be held at Smithville Diamonds, Saturday, June 6th. The tryout will take place after the rain-out games that day. Once we know the time we will update this website post.
