Spring 2015 Travel Baseball Tryouts
Welcome to the Home of

Olney Baseball

Olney Travel Baseball Tryouts (Spring 2015 Season):

All players attending tryouts must complete the online sign-up form in order to attend the upcoming tryouts - this is not a registration and there is no fee involved to attend tryouts.  Go to Online Forms and complete the information sheet and hit submit at the bottom of the form and then click on Checkout on the very next screen that appears.

Check back to this website frequently for updates concerning the timing of travel baseball tryouts for the 2015 spring season teams.  Due to conflicts that can arise and/or weather issues, schedules may change. 

The age cutoff is May 1st.  For example, a 9u eligible player may not turn 10 prior to May 1, 2015.

Players may attend as many tryout sessions as they wish, but only one is required.  If you cannot attend a particular tryout session, do not worry - as long as a player attends one of the sessions the player will be fairly evaluated for possible selection for a team.   

Unless otherwise noted, all tryouts will be conducted at OBGC Community Park.

Announcing:  2014 "Walk the Plank VIII" Tournament

Tournament dates:

Friday, May 23rd - Monday, May 26th

5-Tool Baseball and Olney Travel Baseball are very pleased to once again host the 8th Annual "Walk the Plank" Memorial Day Baseball Classic tournament in 2014 (May 23 - May 26). We had 192 teams participate in this event in 2013 and the participant feedback was extremely positive. With the exception of the 8u age division that is open to all levels of teams due to their age, this unique tournament (unlike the "Mutiny at the Park" which is a wide open tournament) is specifically geared to second tier travel baseball teams (i.e. excluding high level A travel baseball teams). With the recent proliferation of travel baseball teams throughout the region over the past several years, it has become apparent that many teams rarely have a legitimate opportunity to successfully compete in tournaments against high powered travel teams; often times getting mercied after three or four innings of play. Accordingly, the Walk the Plank tournament is geared specifically for the following types of teams: (1) full-time travel teams that perform at about a .500 level or below in their own league play, (2) organization B teams, (3) recreational or house league all-star teams (4) Sunday only travel teams or (5) travel teams that have never come close to winning a highly competitive tournament. Our hope is that all of the participating players will truly enjoy a very positive and competitively balanced baseball tournament experience.

Teams compete in one of the following age divisions (basepaths/pitching distance):
8u Kid Pitch (60/40)
9u (60/46)
10u (60/46)
11u (70/50)
12u (70/50)
13u (90/60)
14u (90/60)
The age cutoff date is April 30. However, please note the following exception for this one tournament only.  So as not to exclude certain Sunday only teams we are allowing every 9u, 11u and 13u team to roster up to a maximum of 3 players that are one year older (i.e 10u, 12u or 14u) if they so desire. The intent of the exception is not to afford teams an opportunity to add ringers, but rather to ensure that older players that are currently playing on teams with a majority of younger players are not left behind.

Tournament registration fees are all inclusive...baseballs are provided and there are no gate fees, no parking fees, no cooler restrictions, etc.

Keep checking back to this website for updates leading up to and throughout the tournament!
