Important Note about Tryouts

After lengthy and detailed discussions about how to be most fair in the entirety of the evaluation and drafting process, the following rules will apply for the tryouts and draft for Minor, Major and Junior Baseball:

It is mandatory that all players that will be entering a division or the draft be evaluated. We have three options for you.
  • You must be at your assigned time on Saturday, March 28, to be evaluated.
  • If you have a conflict at that time, you must contact the league director and make arrangements to be at the evaluations at a different time on Saturday March 28.
  • In case of emergency or other unforeseen conflict, a parent or guardian of the player must call the league director and give a detailed evaluation over the phone to the director.
If none of these three options is completed, then the following will apply:
  • If the player is 11 or under and trying out for Majors, the player will be placed in Minors automatically.
  • If the player is 12 in Majors or any age in Juniors, the player will not be drafted but will be randomly placed on a team after the draft is completed.
Clarification: Southern is trying to be fair in the selection process while also giving all players every opportunity to be evaluated.
