WHC Baseball is proud to announce the formation of a 12U Sunday Only Travel Baseball team. This team is being formed to give our REC league players an opportunity to play more games during the season against strong opponents. Additionally, it will allow us to have a nucleus of players from which to form the Select team for the Spring/Summer tournament season.
To participate on this team during the Spring 2016 season, the player must be an active participant on a Spring 2016 WHC REC 11/12 team. The league in which this team will be participating is the MD Ripken Sunday Travel League. Hence, the league adheres to Ripken Baseball Rules. Teams generally come from no more than a 60 miles radius of Frederick, MD and are located in Washington, Carroll, Howard, Montgomery, and Frederick counties in Maryland. The season will consist of 10 games and opening day is April 2nd.
We plan to have 2 informal practices prior to holding a formal tryout. Practice dates are Saturday, January 30th and Saturday, February 20th from 5:30pm-7pm at Glenelg Country School Lower School Gym. Players attending the practices are asked to pay a $5 fee to cover the facility rental costs. Players are encouraged to attend as many practices they want. To register for the practices, click here.
