Softball tryouts/player evaluations will be on Jan. 10 and 17

Dear Parent of a Manhattan Little League Softball Player, 

We will have softball tryouts, or more precisely player evaluation sessions, on two 
successive Saturdays. During these tryouts experienced softball managers and 
coaches will evaluate all candidates seeking to "move up" a league in 

If your daughter is new to the league and will be in a league where there is a draft, 
please attend one of the two tryouts so she can be evaluated for the draft. Our goal 
is to have every girl rated that will be playing in a league that has a draft. If your 
daughter has played in MBLL then we already have that information. 

Here is the tryout information. Each player requesting to "move up" must attend a 
tryout to determine her eligibility to do so. A player may attend either of these 
sessions. It is not necessary to attend both sessions. 

2009 MLL Softball Tryouts 
When: Saturday, January 10 & 17 
Time: 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. 
Where: American Martyrs Field 

Each player should bring her glove, and bat and helmet if she has them. 

Please review the attached information sheet which describes MLL's softball leagues 
and provides further information regarding the tryouts if you are not sure whether your 
daughter should attend the tryouts. This information is also posted on the league's 
website at 

If your daughter was born in 2002, has played 
two years of MLL T-Ball and has requested to move up to the American Softball 
League, then there is no need for her to attend tryouts. Such players will automatically 
be placed on an American League team. 

If you have any questions regarding MLL softball or the tryouts for softball, please 
do not hesitate to contact me. If you cannot make either of these tryout sessions, 
please let me know and we will do our best to schedule a make up session for those 
unable to attend.
