Tryouts and Sponsorship Opportunities!

Sponsorships

Call this one a shameless plug and request. St. Matthews baseball is a nonprofit organization that exists and provides baseball to our youth thru the generous donations of our sponsors. Quite simply, we could not do this without their help! From sponsoring a team (yes, you can sponsor your son or daughter's team and have your logo on the back of the team's jerseys!) to hanging a sign in the outfield, these contributions mean we do not ask parents to volunteer at the concessions table, players are not asked to sell candy bars or magazines, and you can simply come to the park, relax, and enjoy watching baseball.

But we still need your help. A great way to show your support is to become a sponsor yourself. Whether it is for your business or yourself, we offer a variety of options. Your contribution to the league helps us purchase new equipment, uniforms, field materials/upkeep, ball park upkeep, and everything in between.

If you would like to become a sponsor – and we hope you do! – please review the attached sponsorship form, and free to email me directly at [email protected] if you would like to be a part of keeping St. Matthews Baseball running strong for years to come! (If the PDF does not open for some reason let me know and I will email you a copy directly).

Thank you for allowing this shameless (but much needed) plug and request. Now on to....


Tryouts

Reminder, 4 (Wee Ball), 5 (Tee Ball), 6 (Coach Pitch) and 7U (Machine Pitch) DO NOT have try outs.

If your player is registered for 8U machine pitch, Minor League (9 and 10 year olds), or Major League (11 and 12 year olds), we now have try out dates, times and locations to share:


Dates:


February 22, 2020


Tryouts for 8U Machine Pitch (Legends Sports Academy - 10900 Electron Drive) 
4:30-6:00 p.m. (Last names A-L)
6:00-7:30 p.m. (Last names M-Z)  


February 23, 2020


Tryouts for Minors (9 AND 10 year olds) and Majors (11 AND 12 year olds) (Ballard HS Indoor Baseball Facility)


Minors (9 and 10 year olds) (Ballard HS Indoor Baseball Facility - 6000 Brownsboro Road)  
1:00-2:30 p.m. (Last names A-L)
2:30-4:00 p.m. (Last names M-Z)

Majors (11 and 12 year olds) (Ballard HS Indoor Baseball Facility - 6000 Brownsboro Road)
4:00-5:30 p.m. (Last names A-Z)


What to bring:

Glove, ball cap, regular shoes or non-metal cleats (both facilities are turf), and water.

Batting helmet, batting gloves, and bat are optional as we will have equipment on-site, but feel free to bring your own gear.

Once signed in, please only have your player enter the try-out areas. Parents are free to stay and observe, but to be honest space is pretty tight. If you do, we ask that you remain in the Legends second floor viewing room for 8U, or on the parameter of the building at Ballard for 9’s thru 12’s.


Make up try outs:

While we understand weekends are full of competing sports and other events, baseball try outs are crucial for appropriate placement on a team in each division, and so we encourage you to make sure your child will be available to participate on the dates scheduled above. It is the best opportunity for them to be properly assessed by the coaches. However, if your child cannot make the above date and times, we will offer a short make up tryout before the draft night of their respective division. This is more fully explained in the About Us section on our website. Make up tryouts and draft dates and times will be sent at a later time.


Bring on baseball!
