2018 Brooklyn Bulldogs Travel Baseball – Tryouts and other info

The following details the process for becoming a member of one of our 2018 Spring Brooklyn Bulldog travel baseball teams.

In the spring of 2018 and 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, 15, 16 & 17) will begin their tournaments. We plan on having all teams managed by experienced, former college players and high school baseball coaches.

The Tryout Process:

1/ Those who did not play on a 2017 Bulldog team can tryout on Saturday, September 16 to be invited to our Skills and Drills clinics in the fall. This tryout is at Van Voorhees field: 4pm for 9-10 year olds, 5:30pm for 11-13 year olds (Those ages as of April 30, 2018). Please be there 30 minutes early to allow time to sign up. No advance registration is required, just come. Please bring glove and do not wear shorts. Rain date will be announced. If there is any weather issue, we will post an announcement on our hotline – 877-407-7878.

2/ Those who played on a 2017 Bulldog team are automatically invited to participate in our Skills and Drills clinics in the fall.

3/ On Sunday, December 3 final 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. (Participation in the Skills & Drills Clinic is not required – it is an open tryout for anyone interested regardless of prior participation on a Bulldog team or the Skills & Drills Clinic.) Teams are selected as a result of this tryout.

4/ Team selection will be announced sometime the week of December 12. Winter team workouts will begin in early January.

Skills & Drills Clinics:
Open to 2017 Bulldogs and those invited form the September tryouts. (Ages 9-13, as of April 30, 2018)
Will be six weeks of two sessions per week (batting during the weekdays and defensive skills on Sundays – time will depend on the age group) starting October 2nd
Registration will open immediately after the September 16 tryout.
Focus is on skill development and building strength, especially arm strength.
Tryouts for the College Showcase teams (ages 14, 15, 16 & 17) will occur on Sunday, September 9, 2017. Details of when and where will be published later in the fall.

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 do not permit players to pitch unless they have had instruction.

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 in late May or early June 2018.
