The Greater Hartford Independent Baseball League will hold a open tryout at Rockville High School on Sunday, April 7th, 2019 at 10 AM (April 14th will be used as the rain out date). GHIBL is a “wooden bat” league that plays approximately 18 games (7 innings/game) in its regular season which runs from April to October. Games are played in towns such as Vernon, East Hartford and Manchester on Sunday mornings. This league is open to anyone 18 and over with the desire to play baseball. On April 7th, please bring a wooden bat, a glove, and any other optional equipment that you’d like to use (batting glove, etc…). The open tryout will include warm-ups, a 60 yard dash, pop time (for catchers), defensive drills (infielders/outfielders), pitcher warm-up, light bullpen and some good old fashion batting practice. Draft will take place immediately after the tryouts. In the event you are drafted, you will need a check made out to GHIBL for for $225.00.
