Fall Tryouts/Scrimmage

The next event for new potential players is a “Tryouts/Scrimmage” on July 30th from 10am-2pm in Willington’s Kevin Legare Memorial Field (40 Old Farms Rd). The plan is to conduct a tryout scenario, and any teams needing players will be invited to attend. However, due to our league’s playoff eligibility rules, our main goal is for new recruits to “break of the rust” with scrimmages to be ready for Spring Tryouts, possible expansion, etc.

Tryouts postponed until the 15th

My apologies for the late notice all practices and the tryouts are postponed until the 15th due to orders from the town. Here is all the tryout info:

The Greater Hartford Independent Baseball League will hold a open tryout at Rockville High School Junior Varsity field (right of school) on Sunday, April 15th, 2018 at 10 AM. 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 15th, 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.
