The Orange American Legion Post 127 will be holding its 2019 Baseball tryouts on Saturday, November 3, at Brinley Field (Old Tavern Park) at 10 a.m. Anyone who lives in Bethany, Orange or Woodbridge is eligible.
Once again this season, the league will be providing winter workouts. Once the spring freshman and JV seasons are over, the 17U team will begin practice and play exhibition games. The 19U team will begin practice and play exhibition games after the varsity season is over. Each regular season begins in early June.
The coaches hope to make the postseason state tournament at the end of July. Both teams will be playing in the Fourth of July Firecracker Tournament in Providence, Rhode Island which includes an optional showcase. Rising juniors and seniors will be eligible for nomination for the Rawlings American Legion Futures Showcase game at Central Connecticut State University. The teams will potentially enter another local tournament should the schedule permit.
Including exhibition games, regular season and postseason, each team will play approximately a 35-game competitive schedule.
Approximate price is $675.
