Welcome to the start of our 48th baseball season here at West Yorba Linda Little League! Thank you for registering for the 2022 Spring Season! We are currently planning for a traditional baseball season this year. We are monitoring local and state guidance with respect to COVID. Our most basic COVID protocol is if you are feeling ill, stay away!
Tryouts for the Majors division will take place on January 10th, 2022. AAA tryouts will be on January 11th, and AA tryouts will be January 12th. The list of tryout times can be found with the links below which provide your player with a specific time for their tryout. We are not granting any special time requests. Tryouts are mandatory for all players desiring to play AA – Majors.
Every player that tries out will make a team. Due to numbers in Majors, there will be players that tryout for Majors, but will be drafted in AAA. There will be players that tryout for AAA but will be drafted in AA. No player will drop below AA.
Tryouts will consist of the following:
Catching fly balls and throwing to second base
Fielding ground balls and throwing to first base
Hitting live batting practice
Running the bases
Player safety is our highest priority. The board reserves the right to remove a player from any portion of the tryout process if we believe the process may result in a player injury (i.e. glove turned the wrong direction during the fly ball process).
Due to Covid protocols, we ask that players arrive at the field no more than 10 minutes prior to their tryout time. Also, please have only ONE parent attend the tryout. Please assist us in distancing the best you can. It is best to avoid groups congregating. Also, please leave immediately after your child’s tryout is over.
Please monitor your child’s health/temperature and DO NOT attend if your child has any symptoms of being sick.
Attire and Bats
Your child should come in proper baseball attire including athletic cup, glove, helmet, and cleats. Only stamped USA bats can be used.
Any questions should be directed to your respective Player Agent.
