Player Evaluations provide the opportunity for players to demonstrate the basic skills of baseball (i.e., fielding fly and ground balls, throwing and pitching) in the presence of other players in the same age group/division in which he/she will most likely play. The Player Evaluations shall be conducted in the presence of at least one ALYB Board Member. The information gathered from the pre-season player evaluations are utilized in conjunction with those player evaluations on file to create balanced team rosters within each age division.
Any 8U-12U player that did not play at the American Legion during the most recent Summer or Fall League is required to attend a Player Evaluation Day as scheduled by the League. In the event that the player’s previous coach did not submit the mandatory end-of-season coach evaluations, a returning 8U-12U player may still be required to attend the current league’s player evaluations.
NOTE: All 6U Division players moving up to the 8U Division for the first time must attend a player evaluation.
Once a player has registered they will be notified via email as to whether they need to attend Player Evaluations. A player will not be assigned to a team roster without a recent/current evaluation on file.
