The Toronto Playgrounds Baseball Committee has announced that the first session of indoor tryouts for our respective 2018 Toronto Playgrounds Baseball Select Teams will start on Saturday, January 20 (except for the Bantam Select tryouts, which will start on Saturday, January 27). The tryouts will take place in the double gym at Harbord Collegiate Institute, which is located at 286 Harbord Street between Manning and Euclid Avenues.

To enter the school people must use Door # 5, which is located at the northeast corner of the school off Euclid Avenue. Once you go in that door follow the signs to the gym. Parking is available in the underground school lot as well as on the street. Do not park on school property other than the underground lot. The entrance to the lot is off Euclid Ave. just north of door # 5.

In order to participate in the Select tryouts on January 20 (or any day after that), players will have to hand in a waiver signed by a parent/guardian. Please print off and sign the waiver and bring it to the tryouts on Saturday, January 20. We will have some blank ones on hand but the more people who bring them signed the faster the check in process will be for everyone.

Please note, as this is very important….information and schedules regarding all Select tryouts after Saturday January 20 will be posted on our website ( on the Select Page….the information will NOT be sent out as a general email. So, if you are interested in trying out for Select, please make sure to check the website or Twitter feed (@TPbaseballnews) by Tuesday of each week to see the Select tryout schedule for that Saturday. We will be moving the times of some of the tryouts around a bit every few weeks to give as many people as possible the chance to make it out to some of them.
