Tryouts for our 2023 Spring/Summer season are coming up! It was another successful season for all 10 of our teams. Every team played in a tournament championship and our 10 teams have played in a total of 31 tournament championship games so far this season! FYB has a great group of coaches and plenty of resources to allow this success to continue to grow.
All age groups have access to the indoor fieldhouse at Crowe Field that has three batting cages that can also push back into a full open facility for infield practice. This allows our teams to get in two full practice sessions during the winter months.
7U-12U practices and plays their home games at the Creekside Elementary fields that also have two batting cages on site.
13U-14U practices and plays their home games at Crowe Field located at Franklin Community Middle School.
FYB has a strong connection with the Franklin College baseball program who offers discounts to FYB players at each of their instructional camps for all skills, hitting, pitching, and catching clinics throughout the year.
When you arrive to your tryout location, you'll want to be sure you bring the following items:
If you do not have those items, that is fine as each team will have extras. It would be most beneficial for your child to have their own glove/mitt for tryouts though.
These tryouts are for the 2023 Spring/Summer season. Below is a rule of thumb way to figure out which team your child should try out for.
