EVALUATION and TEAM ROSTER SELECTION
There will be a baseball skill evaluation during the first 3 days of practice. All players will be evaluated at infield and/or outfield play, batting, timed running and intra-squad scrimmages (weather permitting).
The total number of rosters spots on the Tumwater Varsity, JV and C team will be approximately 45 players. Selection to a roster spot will be determined mainly on the skill evaluation, intra-squad scrimmage performance. However, other factors will be considered, ie; number of players turning out, possible safety concerns, etc. There is a possibility that some players may not be selected to a team roster spot. You will be notified as soon as possible and encouraged to participate in another spring sport or activity. The rosters will be posted as soon as possible (end of the 1st week).
