TP Select Baseball Outdoor Workout/Tryout Sessions


Photos from the 2017 Toronto Playgrounds Select Baseball Season.

The Toronto Playgrounds Baseball Committee has announced that outdoor workout/tryout sessions for players interested in playing Select for Toronto Playgrounds in 2018 in the Rookie Ball (2009-2010), Mosquito (2007-2008) and Peewee (2005-2006) divisions will begin later this week.

Now, first of all, please don’t worry or panic if you can’t make it to the sessions being announced...for this first part of the tryout process there will be a number of outdoor sessions for each age group, and missing one or two of them will not mean you won’t make the team. Some of this week’s sessions for example are during Yom Kippur, so we realize that some players won’t be able to attend those particular sessions….if you are interested but can’t make these first sessions please let us know by return email….please include your child’s year of birth in the email. We will be holding sessions for each age group on different days of the week during the outdoor workout/tryout portion so that everyone has as many chances as possible to make it out.

It’s also important to note that no one will be “cut” based upon these outdoor sessions. When the outdoor sessions end later in October, there will be a break before the tryouts resume indoors in the winter (in late January/early February)….everyone who is still interested at that point will be able to attend the indoor tryouts. Cuts will start to be made after two or three weeks of the indoor sessions.

These outdoor sessions are very important in that they give us as a league an opportunity to make an informed decision as to how many select team we can field in each division. The decision as to whether we have both Major and Minor select teams in each division or one blended team will not be made until after the outdoor sessions wrap up. So if you’re interested in trying out for Select please make it out to at least a couple of the outdoor sessions…but please also only come out to these sessions if you know you are interested in trying out for Select. Please read the Different Levels of Baseball at TP” information sheet regarding the Select program carefully before deciding to come out for the Select workouts/tryouts. As it states in the information sheet, if you are only interested in playing house league in 2018, then you don’t need to come out to any of these sessions.
