Mandatory Evals Are 2 Sessions

Mandatory Evaluations Set for Saturday, March 4

In an ongoing effort to maximize good baseball by making our teams as balanced as possible, the NBL will be conducting mandatory evaluations for all leagues on Saturday, March 4 (Fielding/Pitching evaluations) and Sunday March 12 (Hitting evaluations).

These evaluations help us to see every player so that we can give each team a good mix of skill levels for the most competitive league play. We are still allowing requests for kids to play together, but there may be some rare instances where we will have to deny a request. Over the last several years, we are proud to say we have been able to honor most every request by making balanced adjustments in order to achieve fair play.

EVALUATION STAGE ONE Saturday, March 4 @ Grennan Heights Gym This first stage of evals will focus on running, throwing and fielding—no hitting.
  • Pinto League (7-8 year olds) 9:00-10:00
  • Mustang League (9-10 year olds) 10:15-11:15
  • Bronco League (11-12 year olds) 11:30-12:30
  • Pony League (13-14 year olds) 1:00-2:00

EVALUATION STAGE TWO Sunday, March 12 @ Level Up, 6227 W Howard St, Niles, IL This second stage of evals will focus on hitting only. Please arrive 15 minutes before your slot to sign in and take warm-up swings.
  • Pinto League (7-8 year olds) 9:00-9:30
  • Mustang League (9-10 year olds) 9:40-10:10
  • Bronco League (11-12 year olds) 10:20-10:50
  • Pony League (13-14 year olds) 11:00-11:30
If you cannot attend tryouts, please send an email to [email protected] to make alternative arrangements. These evaluations will be used as a tool to balance our teams as much as we can. For some levels, these evaluations will also be used to determine all-star teams.
After evaluations, teams will be selected, and your coach will reach out to you with a practice schedule.
See you there!
