2024 MBL Tryouts Sept 16!


For the 2024 baseball season, SYBA will be evaluating baseball players for the potential creation of the following MBL teams:

  • 14U
  • 13U
  • 12U
  • 11U
  • 10U

These teams are created and play in the Metro Baseball League (MBL) which is different than our in house teams (Majors, Minors, Rookies). 

After player evaluations, SYBA will determine what MBL teams can and should be created (Including additional divisions within each age group, AAA, AA, etc.) based on the abilities & skillsets of the players who try out, and the volume of players who can allow SYBA to form competitive teams. SYBA reviews these tryouts on an annual basis and certain age groups may or may not have MBL teams created based on the aforementioned factors. 

All players interested are encouraged to try out!


This year, tryouts will be held September 16th, 2023 at the Larry Forrest baseball fields at the following times:

·         10U        1:00 – 2:00 pm    LF3 (current 3rd and 4th graders)

·         11u/12U 2:30 – 3:30 pm    LF3 (current 5th and 6th graders)

·         13u/14U 4:00 – 5:00 pm    LF1 (current 7th and 8th graders)

*In the event of inclement weather, the tryouts will move to the High School Gym.
