Registration for Senior Travel is currently open for the Senior Travel teams (Legion, Legion II, and Junior Legion).

New 2020 Registration Policies

Policy 1, to be enacted January 1st, 2020

When registering for Senior Travel, it is under the assumption you are committing to whichever team you are placed upon. If after tryouts have taken place and teams have been posted, any player wishing to remove their name from a team, that player shall be prohibited from trying out for SENIOR TRAVEL the following season. Special circumstances such as work scheduling conflicts, injury/illness, etc. that prevent a player from honoring a spot on their respective team will be reviewed by the senior travel coaches and PWYBA executive committee. No removal of a players name due to taking a spot on a club baseball roster will be reviewed and is subject to penalty laid forth by this policy. 

 

Policy 2, to be enacted September 1st, 2020

To promote the growth of legion baseball, the following policy will go into effect September 1st 2020: Any player, who after completing their 10th AND 11th grade school year did not play on ANY PWYBA sponsored team during the summer, that player shall not be permitted to tryout for SENIOR TRAVEL within PWYBA for their 12th grade summer year. Special circumstances such as moving into the district, injury, taking a year off, etc. will be reviewed by the senior travel coaches and PWYBA executive committee. Players that participated in club baseball in both summers after completing their 10th AND 11th grade school year will not be reviewed and is subject to penalty laid forth by this policy.


2020 Tryout Information

2020 tryout dates and location for the senior level travel will take place on Sunday April 19th at Parkers Lake, with a make-up/further evaluation date scheduled for Sunday April 26th at Parkers Lake.  After the registration window closes there will be further instructions from Senior Travel Director Maris Blanchard.

Below are some details:

  • Due to the high school schedules, tryouts must be held on Sundays.
  • Players in grade 10 will tryout from 10:00am-12:00pm.
  • Players in grade 11 - college freshman will tryout together from 12:30pm-2:30pm.
  • The tryout will focus on evaluating all baseball skills by rotating through fielding, hitting, and pitching stations. Game situations may also be utilized to further the evaluation process.
  • A call back tryout (Sunday April 26th) may be utilized if it is necessary for further player evaluation or weather cancels the original date.
  •  In the past tryouts have been held at Minnetonka High School. Due to the success that a turf tryout provides, we may utilize Minnetonka High School again if weather becomes an issue for the spring of 2020.
