What are Evaluations?
"Evaluations" are sometimes referred to as Try-Outs, and are events that the League holds in which a player’s current baseball skills are evaluated and assessed by Little League division managers.
Who has to attend Evaluations?
All players except those in t-ball.
Where are Evaluations?
Evaluations are held at Richardson Field, unless otherwise noted on the website.
What happens at Evaluations?
Players will be rated on the following skills: fielding fly balls, fielding ground balls, throwing (from outfield and infield positions), batting, and running.
How long do Evaluations last?
It will vary depending on the number of players, but each age group usually takes about 60 minutes. Evaluations are scheduled throughout the day in various groups, please check the schedule on our website for the appropriate time for your player(s).
What do I need to bring?
A baseball glove/mitt, cap and cleats. Your player may also bring his own batting helmet and/or bat. Please make sure all of your player’s gear has a name and phone number on it and that it is kept together, preferably in a player bag. Also, please bring water and food, as needed.
If my player has a bad Evaluation, will he get "cut" or dropped?
No. All players that attend Evaluations will be placed onto an RSFLL team.
If all players get on a team, then why does my player need to be evaluated?
So that your player can be placed into a division that is appropriate for their skill and so that teams can be constructed of equal talent. Little League International requires Leagues to evaluate and assess a player’s skills. The Evaluation is the most effective way to do this.
If it rains before the Evaluations, will the event still be held?
Yes, but only if the fields are safe. If a rainout is called, it will be posted on the website, and reschedule information will be posted as soon as possible. Please check our website if you are unsure on the day of the Evaluations.
What happens if my player misses the Evaluation?
All players MUST be Evaluated. Evaluations are required to ensure that all players are placed into the correct division, and to equalize teams. When a player misses the Evaluation, this is not possible. Players who are not Evaluated may be declared ineligible, and if allowed to play will likely be placed in the lowest possible division, according to their age group to avoid putting them onto a team where their skill level is not high enough for them to safely play. Accordingly, it is critical that your player attend an Evaluation.
Is there a make-up date?
Yes. The make-up date will be posted on our website.
