Anyone interested in trying out should be registered  members of Springfield Athletic Association. 
Please register and sign up for travel baseball.
Questions you might be pondering:
Can I try out?  Anyone turning 16 prior to April 30th of this year and born Jan 1 1993 and later can try out.  Usually 10/11/12/13 grades
Will I make it?
ans: Depends on your talent level and the level of those competing for spots. 
I have a vacation planned, should I try out?
ans:  The season is short.  High school senior week is a regular occurence.  This is usually not a problem as long as there are enough "non Seniors" on the team to play the games of that/those weeks.  However, High School Senior WEEKS have become more and more regular.  Anyone considering more than 1 week away from the team during the season should discuss those plans with the coach.
Can I play for other teams?
ans:  It depends on how you fit into the make up of the team.  Players considered starting players are expected to make this team your primary team.   I usually work with non starting players who have other options so that they can gain more overall playing time.  This usually works best when the other teams are other Springfield AA teams. 
Any thing else? let me know.
Age Cutoff Date ?  Must have birth date Jan 1 1993 or after.
2012 bats = BBCOR
