Tryouts this Saturday April 26 at Milton High School
Tryouts (and practice for returning players) for the Al Thomas Baseball Club will be held this Saturday, April 26, 2008 at the Milton High School field on Gile Rd. in Milton from 5 to 7 pm.
Any player, aged 17 or older is welcome to attend tryouts. Players are asked to arrive early, dress, stretch and be ready to take the field at 5:00.
The team plays 32 games beginning in mid May, both on weeknights (starting times of 7:30 or 8:00) and weekends (varying starting times from 1:00 on). Players must attend a minimum of 17 games in uniform and play in a minimum of 5 games to be eligible for the playoffs. There is an exception for pitchers, as they must attend 8 games and accumulate 32 innings pitched to qualify for the playoffs.
Players attending the tryouts (and practice) should know up front that making the roster is no guarantee of playing time. We try to be fair and as accomodating as possible, but often times scores dictate flexibility in playing time. We are in this as a team, and everyone should be prepared to do what it takes to help the team be successful.
