The Toronto Playgrounds Baseball Committee has announced that the tryouts and workouts for the 2011 TP Select Teams are scheduled to commence on the evening of Monday, February 28 for eligible participants in our Mosquito and Peewee classifications and on Tuesday, March 1 for interested players in our Bantam age category.

The indoor tryouts and workouts will be held at the Bob Abate Community and Recreation Centre located at 485 Montrose Avenue (Bloor and Montrose). Here is the schedule:

Monday, February 28

MOSQUITO SELECT TRYOUT/WORKOUT:  7:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. (Interested Mosquito players and parents are advised to be there at 6:45 p.m. to register and check in.)

PEEWEE SELECT TRYOUT/WORKOUT:  8:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. (Interested Peewee players and parents are advised to be there at 7:45 p.m. to register and check in.)  

Tuesday, March 1

BANTAM SELECT TRYOUT/WORKOUT:  7:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. (Interested Bantam players and parents are advised to be there at 6:45 p.m. to register and check in.) 

The Toronto Playgrounds Select program is a team which players have to “make”. Any player who is registered in our TP House League program (and not playing rep) is eligible to try out.

Our TP select teams usually play in a select loop during the season, with one game (and at least one practice) each week. These select games and practices will be in addition to house league games and practices.

The TP Baseball Committee wishes to stress that players will ONLY be allowed to participate in the TP Select Program ONLY if they are registered with payment in the TP House League Program and participating regularly with their 2011 house league team. THERE WILL BE NO EXCEPTIONS TO THIS RULE.

Please note that there will be additional costs for those players who make the TP select teams, which will be in addition to house league fees.

The TP Baseball Committee is still actively considering the feasibility of fielding a Rookie Ball Select Team. However, the status of this proposal is contingent on parent and player interest.
