TP REP > 2013 Minor Peewee Rep Tryouts


Hello Toronto Playgrounds Select Team and House League Baseball Players born in 2001:

The head coach of the 2013 Minor Peewee Rep team would like to invite you to the first weekend of team tryouts taking place at these times and venues:

  • Saturday, September 15 @  1:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. at Christie Pits Diamond 3
  • Sunday, September 16 @   2:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. at Ravina Gardens Park.

Please have players come prepared with baseball pants, cleats, glove, jock, water, and a competitive spirit! Plan to arrive early as we are planning to make the most of the short practice time we have together.

As you can imagine, the move to Minor Peewee constitutes a big change for players as the playing field gets bigger (distance between bases, mount to home plate) and several key rules are modified (i.e. lead offs, balks, etc.). We are planning to create a positive, fun, but challenging environment for all players in order to give each individual, as well as the team, the best possible chance to succeed.

Individual success will be measured on more than just inherent ability. Focus, perseverance, initiative, work ethic, and commitment are all factors that will lead to success both for the player and the team. Our philosophy is that the process is paramount, and with the right process good results will follow. We trust that parents will help us in this regard by supporting these ideals and reinforcing them in a positive manner.

Of course, any and all questions are always welcome. You can contact Rebecca Wells Jopling at

Looking forward to seeing everyone on September 15 and 16!
