    2023 TRAVEL BASEBALL TEAMS TRYOUTS

    JULY 24 & JULY 31, 2022

    Tryouts for our 2023 travel baseball teams will be held at Liberty Fields in Twinsburg on Sunday, July 24, 2022 and Sunday, July 31,  2022. Twinsburg offers travel baseball teams annually in seven different age divisions: 8U, 9U, 10U, 11U, 12U, 13U and 14U.

    Even years (8U, 10U, 12U and 14U) will begin at 8:30 a.m. Odd years (9U, 11U, 13U) will begin at 10:45 a.m. Please arrive at least 30 minutes prior to start time. Pre-registration is not necessary.

    New for this year, the TBL Board has voted to authorize and support a second 8U Travel Team, should the numbers and tryout scores merit consideration for one.

    More information about the Twinsburg Travel Baseball Program is available here.

     



    "Twinsburg represents community baseball at its best. Their teams are consistently strong fundamentally and more importantly they play the game the right way; with respect."

    Former Cleveland Indians & Current Toronto Blue Jays President Mark Shapiro

    We are always looking for new TBL volunteers and board members.

    A reminder to all of our coaches, players and parents ...

    1. These are kids
    2. This is a game
    3. Our coaches volunteer
    4. The umpires are human
    5. This is not professional baseball



    TBL mandates that our volunteer head coaches take an online training course to become registered members of the National Youth Sports Coaching Association and also that they take an online concussion awareness training course.  Both courses are also highly recommended for our assistant coaches and any other parents that help out with their children's teams.
