Tryouts for Frankfort Baseball's full and part time travel teams have begun. Please note that tryouts are age specific and will consist of players trying out for both full time and part time teams. Indicate your team preference on the registration form.
The age cut-off Force players is determined based on the player's age as of April 30, 2021.
However, we encourage players with later birthdays to play with their class in school as opposed to playing with a younger grade. For example, a player who just completed 7th grade and has a birthday in May would still be 13 as of April 30, 2020 and thus be eligible for the 13u team. However, as an 8th grader next year, the player's grade in school would indicate participation at the 14u level. Grade level equivalents are as follows:
15u = 9th grade
11u = 5th grade
14u = 8th grade
10u = 4th grade
13u = 7th grade
9u = 3rd grade
12u = 6th grade
8u = 2nd grade
Frankfort Force is a full-time travel baseball program and its tryouts are open to all interested players. 2020 fees for Force players were $1200-$1500. 2021 fees approx $1200-1500.
Frankfort Eagles is a part-time travel program that play in the Chicagoland Sunday Baseball League and have a 10-15 game regular season schedule with up to 3 tournaments. Eagles players must play in the Frankfort house league during the 2021 season. 2021 fees approx $600.
Players should arrive at the park one-half hour prior to the start time to check in and warm-up. They should wear normal baseball attire and bring their own glove, bat, helmet, and water.
If a player is offered a roster spot, we will collect a $250 non-refundable deposit to secure the roster position. The deposit will be applied towards the 2021 fees.
