Tryouts / Evaluations

Every spring we hold evaluations/tryouts to assess individual players abilities in hopes of placing them on a team that is aligned to their current skill level.  We work with local baseball organizations to conduct a unbiased assessment of each player's current skills in 5 different aspects of baseball.  For more details, please visit the tryout page on our site.

HBA organizes a series of preseason workouts for players to get back into playing shape and prepare themselves for the upcoming season's tryouts.   We partner with Players Only Inc. and the Hopkins American Legion coaches to put on our clinics.
