Middletown Babe Ruth will be holding tryouts on March 25
from 11 - 1 PM at the Gaudet Middle School Gymnasium.
Tryouts are required for any player that was not on a team for the 2016 Spring season. Returning players do not need to attend tryouts. Any changes to this schedule will be posted on the MBR website http://www.mribr.org .
Players attending tryouts should bring their baseball equipment (glove, bat) and be dressed appropriately for both indoor and outdoor conditions (no shorts please). Please remember to bring sneakers as part of the tryout will be conducted in the gymnasium. Cleats can be worn for the outdoor portion of the tryout if desired. It is recommended that players bring and use a bat they are comfortable swinging. This can be any bat that was used in Little League, Pony League, etc. We will also have a limited selection of bats available to the players.
The tryout format will be as follows:
Gaudet Middle School Gymnasium:
(1) Discuss the tryout process with players as a group and introduce the MBR Managers
(2) Warm-ups (High School players will supervise and put the players through a similar warm-up they complete before games.) The players will run, stretch, and throw.
(3) Throw with partner (line up pairs of players at the same distance to look at arm strength, accuracy, mechanics, etc.)
(4) Hitting from machine set up in cage, 2 bunts, 6-8 swings (possibly more depending on time, etc.)
(5) Field ground balls and throw to base (this will be conducted outside if weather permits)
(6) If managers are interested: Pitching/Catching workout for interested players
Outside on the Gaudet Baseball Field(weather permitting):
(7) Timed run 1st to 3rd (run through 3B, no slide), or measured 60 yard sprint.
(8) Field ground balls at SS/2B positions and throw to 1st/3rd base.
(9) Field fly ball in RF/LF position and throw to cutoffs.
10) Short wrap-up.
