Tryouts for the 2019 season will be held March 18-22 from 4:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. each day.
Multiple cuts may be made during the week and selection of the final teams may not take the entire 5 days.
Players should be dressed in baseball pants or sweats, cleats, a long sleeve shirt, and baseball cap. Please bring a sweatshirt or light jacket. If weather is poor or the field is unplayable, we will adjust the schedule. Every player should also bring a pair of tennis shoes. We have an indoor hitting area and we will make use of if during the tryout process.
Please check our Facebook page for updates on any changes to the tryout schedule based on weather.
2018 Season Financial Commitment
We are currently evaluating our ticket commitment for 2019.
- Season Tickets
Players will pay $450.00 (Independents $200.00) for season tickets passes and will be given the opportunity to sell that amount to help defer the cost of the program and reduce player fees. Any unsold tickets will be returned to program by May 15.
- Administration Fee
A $30.00 administrative fee for Senators and Reps and $15.00 for Independents is required.
- Uniform and Equipment Fee
A $250.00 for uniform and equipment fee (Independents $150.00) is required.
Total financial commitment:
- Senators and Reps: $730
- Independents: $365
Note – we also have an option for parents to opt into a payment plan, the total of which is due by May 15, 2018. The totals amount due would be $765 and $399, respectively.
2018 Player Time Commitments
- Primary commitment to baseball during baseball season
- The players primary commitment must be to baseball during the season. Players are allowed excused absences for athletic camps or other academic/athletic opportunities. Players should try to avoid missing conference games. An Absence Request Form must be filled out and submitted to the Head Coach by April 3 (second day of tryouts). The request will be either approved or denied prior to the conclusion of tryouts. Family vacations are not approved absences. Vacations should be scheduled outside of the baseball season. Penalty for unexcused absences will result in either a suspension or dismissal. Emergency absences will be handled on a case by case basis but must be communicated with the Head Coach as soon as possible. Unexcused absences or being tardy from scheduled practices or games will result in a suspension of up to five games. Additional unexcused absences or being tardy will subject the player to removal from the Helena American Legion Program.
