2018 Brooklyn Bulldogs Travel Baseball Tryouts: 9-13 year olds & College Showcase 14-17yos

For spring of 2018 we intend to field teams ages 9, 10, 11, 12 & 13 (those ages as of April 30, 2018). After the high school season ends in May, our college showcase teams (ages 14 thru 17) will begin their tournaments. All Brooklyn Bulldog teams are managed by experienced, former college players and high school baseball coaches.

On Sunday, December 3 tryouts will be held in the gym at MS142 (610 Henry St) for all players interested in being selected to a 2018 Spring Bulldog team, ages 9-13. The College Showcase tryouts will either be December 2, 9 or 10 – we are awaiting gym confirmation. The home page of our website will have the for the final times for the 9-13 tryouts and the date, time, and location for the College Showcase tryouts posted no later than November 1: http://www.78pyc.org.

For the 9-13s, team selection will be announced sometime the week of December 12. Winter team workouts will begin in early January (two hours on Sundays and 1.5 hours of batting one weeknight a week). The College Showcase rosters will be announced within 10 days of those tryouts.

Season for 9-13s
Our spring orange teams will be playing competitive schedules, with an increased emphasis on tournament play for the 11s, 12s, and 13s during the spring. We have many experienced instructors to supplement team workouts who will be available the winter and spring for lessons. We are very protective of pitcher’s arms and do not permit players to pitch unless they have had instruction or a waiver from our director.

The spring season runs from April through either the first or second week of July for the 9, 10 & 11year old teams. The12s & 13s run through the end of July. We field an 8-year-old Bulldog team in the summer, not in the spring. Tryouts for the 8-year-old team will be in June, 2018 and will be announced late May or early June 2018.

College Showcase Program
Our showcase program is geared towards training the top athletes in the NYC area to prepare and expose their talents to hundreds of college coaches. Our mission is simple: develop great skills, build physical strength and agility, and prepare our players for elite tournament play and individual-player based college showcases.

Once the season begins (after public school ends) players will practice three to four days a week and play in tournaments every week until the beginning of August, when the individual player based showcases begin.

What sets us apart from most programs is the emphasis we place on multiple practices a week and advanced strength training. Practices will also include everything players need to do at individual players based college showcases. The older teams will also play in the fall of 2018 to increase exposure.
