Tryout Registration

Students ages 14-19 are eligible to register for and participate in team tryouts.  To register, complete and turn in the following forms (available for printing at the links provided or for pickup at the Triple Play Academy), along with a check for the $100 registration fee.

 

  • TRYOUT-Registration Form
  • Baseball-Form-2-2017
  • Player Intent Form and Contract   NOTE:  Carefully consider this form before you sign it.  Participation on a BALB team is a significant commitment for both players and participants.   As a player, you must be available for games and practices weekdays and weekends, April through July or August (the latter depending upon team advancement in Legion tournaments).
  • FREE SPORTS PHYSICAL Bring this form filled out to AMP to receive free sports physical.
  • MHSA Pre-Participation Physical Exam Form    NOTE:  If you wish to register before completing the MHSA physical exam, you may do so; however, exam results must be provided to BALB before you will be allowed to participate in tryouts.  You may have a physician of your choice conduct your physical exam, or you may receive a free exam as arranged by BALB (click here for information).   Also, if you have a completed MHSA exam form, current through at least August 31, 2017, on file at your school, you can submit a copy of this form rather than getting a new physical
