Welcome to all new and returning Eagan Travel Baseball players! We have been working hard this off-season to make 2019 the best season yet! Here are a few reminders regarding tryouts:
• Please have players come prepared in baseball pants, shoes, nut cups, and hats. Bring ALL of your gear, including your helmet. Cleats or tennis shoes are acceptable.
• Do not wear any Eagan Baseball attire, club team attire, or clothing with identifying information to tryouts.
• Tryouts are closed to the public.
Please remember to bring a $45.00 jersey check made out to Eagan Travel Baseball to your tryout at The Cages if you have not already paid for a jersey (refer to previous email sent this week for updated jersey information).
Players should check in at the registration desk upon their arrival, where they will be given a tryout number. The tryout number will remain the same for both tryout sessions, and the independent evaluators will only have access to player numbers, not their names. It’s important to remember your number, as team postings will be by number, not by name.
Players must try out with a bat that meets the regulations for their age. Please refer to the website for bat requirements for all ages. If you do not have the correct bat, please arrange to borrow one from another player or request to use one from The Cages.
Tuesday, Wednesday, and Friday tryouts will take place at the Savage Sports Center, located at 13450 Dakota Ave, Savage MN 55378 and will cover infielding and outfielding. Please have players arrive at least 10 minutes early. Please plan on having your player available for the entire tryout window but be aware that he may be done early. While parents can't watch tryouts, there is space available for parents to stay on site if desired.

We are looking forward to a fun and successful baseball season!
