What are evals? 
Evals are our league evaluations of each player and their baseball ability level before the start of the season. 

Why do we need evals?
Evals are needed in order to create a balanced and competitive league among each team.

What time is my player's session?
A full, updated schedule for evals can be found here. Please make sure you sign your player up for one of the new time slots. 

When should I arrive to evals?
Please arrive 15 minutes prior to your player's assigned time.

Where/how do I register when I arrive?
Registration tables will be set up between Legion and Bartlett Fields. Board members will be on hand and will give your player a sticker with an assigned number. Please place the sticker on your player’s shirt. This number will be used to identify your player throughout the session. After checking in, players can use the remaining time to get warmed up. 

What will my player be expected to do during evals?
Each player will perform a brief set of drills and skill exercises, consisting of hitting, fielding and throwing. AA and higher divisions will also be asked to pitch off a mound.

Who will be doing the evaluating?
Players will be evaluated by the coaches in his or her division. 

How long will evals take?
Each session varies by division but your player should expect to spend anywhere from 3-5 minutes doing actual baseball activities. Please plan to stay for the entirety of your assigned session. Once your player has completed all the exercises, you may leave. 

What should my player wear?
Players should wear baseball attire or athletic gear. Players should also pack a light jacket or sweatshirt in the event of cooler temperatures.

What equipment does my player need to bring?
Players should bring:

  • Glove
  • Bat (must have a USA Baseball sticker)
  • Helmet (must have a face cage)

We will also have league bats and helmets on hand, should anyone need to borrow them.

What if my player doesn't perform well at his/her eval?
It's ok, all players will still be drafted. 

Are evals mandatory?
YES! Evals are mandatory for all Rookie and above division players. Teeball and Peewee divisions do not attend evals. 

What if I can't make it to eval sessions?
If your player cannot make it to any of our sessions please contact us immediately to avoid losing your spot. Since we are expecting bad weather over the weekend, there will no longer be a make-up session soon Sunday, February 11. 

When will I find out what team my player is on?
Emails to parents will go out shortly after the draft. 

I have some used equipment I don't need anymore. Can I bring it with me?
Yes. This year we will have our first 'SLL Equipment Swap'. There will be a table and buckets set up at registration where you may place your used equipment to swap with other SLL families.
