FINAL TRYOUT DAY - SATURDAY JAN 21

FALL Families: 

Thank you to all of our FALL Parents and Players for making our tryout date this past Sunday a success! We realize that last minute changes can impact family plans and we greatly appreciate your patience and flexibility while we do our best to make these tryouts succeed.

 

Our final tryout date is scheduled for this upcoming Saturday, January 21st. Despite the forecasted rain for Saturday, we are committed to making this final tryout happen. At this point, we have secured an indoor facility where we can execute our final tryout should the weather force us to abandon the fields.

 

We will follow up with precise location details and tryout times in an email later this week…..

 

As a reminder, players need only attend one tryout session. Players who attended the Sunday, January 15th tryout are more than welcome to try out again on Saturday, January 21st – although they’re not required to do so.

 

Thank You!

Updated Spring 2017 Tryout Schedule

Updated Spring 2017 Tryout Schedule

The sun may finally be out but the nearly two weeks of constant rain has left our fields in horrible condition. Folsom American Little League leadership has been in daily communications with Folsom Parks and Recreation and other recreational agencies and businesses throughout the region to secure field space for the scheduled tryout this weekend. 

New Dates

Tryout #2 - SUNDAY, JANUARY 15 - Unfortunately, we need to move this weekend's tryout to Sunday. Despite our best efforts, we could not find an open turf field or facility on Saturday. Tryouts are now being moved to Sunday, January 15 at the football/soccer turf field (not the baseball fields) at Livermore Community Park. Address:

PLEASE NOTE: No metal cleats allowed on turf!  Turf shoes and running shoes only.

Make-up Tryout #1 - SATURDAY, JANUARY 21 - Tryout #1 was canceled due to rain. The make-up date is scheduled for Saturday, January 21. A location is TBD but the schedule will be similar to that for January 15.  Please keep in mind that rain is forecast for the weekend of January 21 which could effect the tryout status.

  • Players required to try-out must attend at least one of the two tryout dates.  You may choose either day. Players don’t need to attend both, but are allowed to if they feel they didn’t perform as well as they could have in the first try-out

Important Notes

  • All players league age 9-14 years old (born April 30, 2003 - August 31, 2007) MUST attend one of the two tryout sessions listed below in order to be eligible to play Spring 2017 baseball.

EXCEPTION (MAJORS): Players returning to a Majors team from Spring 2016 (not Fall 2016) are not required to tryout as they will automatically be placed on their returning team.  If a player from a 2016 Majors team opts to try out, they will be eligible to be drafted by any Majors team. 

EXCEPTION (8 AND 9 YEAR OLDS):  Players league ages 8 and 9 are eligible to be drafted to AA (8 and 9 year olds) or AAA (9 year olds) if they tryout.  Participation in tryouts is not a guarantee a player will be drafted to AA or AAA.  Players that don't get drafted will automatically be placed on a Single A team for the Spring 2017 season.  Players who choose to not attend tryouts: 8 years old will be place in Single A, 9 years old who do not tryout will be Waitlisted.

  • All players, new and returning, must have all registration materials (payment or scholarship applications inclusive of all supporting paperwork) completed prior to the tryout they attend. Walk-in registrations are permitted at tryouts, but expect a longer wait time at check-in. 

Schedule

Tryouts are organized by league age - your child's league age determines when they should be there and what field they will try out on.  If you are unsure of what your child's actual league age is we've included further details below the schedule.

New Bats Rules coming 2018!!

LITTLE LEAGUE® TO ADOPT NEW USA BASEBALL BAT STANDARD STARTING WITH 2018 SEASON

Please note that as of January 1, 2018, the new USA Baseball Bat Standard will be implemented. Little League-approved baseball bats that are approved for use for the 2017 season will no longer be acceptable for use in any Little League game or activity starting on January 1, 2018.

There is no immediate change to youth baseball organizations' bat rules.  All bats, currently accepted for the respective leagues, remain permissible through December 31, 2017. 

Effective on January 1, 2018, Little League Baseball® will adhere to the new USABat standard and all bats must be marked with the USABat label in order to be used in Little League Baseball®.  All bats previously approved for use in Little League Play (Junior League Baseball and below) and marked with the BFP 1.15, will NOT be permitted to be used in any Little League activities, including practices or games. 

Here is a useful link to USA Baseball Bat Standard - FAQ

As we currently know, the new approved bats with USA baseball stamp will not be out until Fall 2017.

For more information, please see http://www.littleleague.org/learn/equipment/baseballbatinfo.htm and/or USA Baseball Bat Standard

2017 Spring Managers Needed!

Calling All Managers!

FALL is in need of managers, coaches, and assistant coaches for the Spring 2017 season. If you have volunteered in the past, we hope you will return to the dugout as a manager or coach again this spring. If you have not volunteered and are interested in volunteering as a manager, coach, or assistant coach, we highly encourage you to do so!  Our program is run on the dedication and spirit of our volunteers and we are only successful when we have a strong network of parents and volunteers assisting. 

 

The deadline for manager applications for AA, AAA, Majors, and Juniors divisions is December 5th. The Division Reps will be interviewing managers after applications close and will be solidifying the managers for the spring season by mid-December. If you are interested in volunteering as a manager for these divisions, please complete an application.  

 

Managers are needed for Tee-Ball, Farm, and A divisions as well.  Please be sure to fill out an application if you are interested in volunteering as a manager in these divisions.
