Baseball Tryouts Update


We would like to announce that North Jefferson Middle School will host a tryout for our baseball team on Friday October 9th from 3:00pm-6:00pm. Players need to be at the field by 2:45 to prepare for tryouts.  Our baseball field is located off campus. The field is located at 8601 Old Highway 31, Morris, AL 35116.  Parents must provide transportation for kids named A-L to tryouts. M-Z kids will ride a bus to the field. TRYOUTS ARE CLOSED TO PARENTS.   Each player should be equipped with proper baseball equipment: glove, cup, cleats, tennis shoes “for hitting in the cage”, baseball pants, baseball cap, bat (not required but recommended to have a -3). The tryout will consist of the basic fundamental baseball skills all players should have in order to play middle school baseball. We will grade each player on their throwing, hitting, catching, and fielding ability. Everyone who attends the tryout will be given an equal opportunity. Coaches will not discuss tryouts or reasons for not making the team with anyone; however, players are welcome to ask for tips to improve their skills. As coaches at NJMS we will select the players that will represent our school with proper etiquette and give us the best chance to have a successful year. A list of players will be posted Saturday morning of the team at NJMS followed by a parent meeting next week.  EVERYONE MUST HAVE THE PROPER PAPERWORK DONE IN DRAGONFLY; Physical, concussion, and consent.
