Tryouts for the 2015 AYBA 12U Recreation League Cooperstown Team are Sunday 3/22

Saturday, January 17, 2015

For the 12th year in row, AYBA will sponsor a trip to the Cooperstown Dreams Park Tournament for a group of 12U Recreation League All-Stars. This tournament is one of the most prestigious in the US and takes place in Cooperstown, NY.

Tryouts for the 2015 Rec League All-Star Cooperstown Team will be held on Sunday March 22nd from 3 – 6 PM at Wills Park on Field C. Tryouts are mandatory for consideration to the 2015 Cooperstown Team. Please plan to be at tryouts the entire time.

Players eligible for the Cooperstown team must be registered in the Spring AYBA Recreation program in the 12 year old age group (may be either in the Select Division or American Division) and must be 12 years old on or before April 30th, 2015 in other words your playing age for both rec baseball and eligibility for the Cooperstown team is your age as of April 30th, 2015. So for example if you turn 12 on April 5th, then you are eligible to tryout, however if you turn 12 on May 1st or later, you are not eligible for the 2015 Cooperstown team. Players that turn 12 May 1st or later in 2015 will be eligible for the Cooperstown team next season, the 2016 season.

AYBA will be attending Cooperstown July 4th through the 11th. The estimated budget per player is $1500 (not including transportation), we expect to have fundraising to offset these costs. In addition to playing Cooperstown, the team will play in five to six tournaments and a few non-tournament games after the Spring Select / Rec season ends.

If you have any questions please contact Dave Schertz 770-845-5471 or Tom Ford 404-386-6561.

Attention Propsective Umpires

Thursday, January 23, 2014

GOA (Georgia Official's Association) is conducting a search for
prospective Rookie umpires for the 2014 season. We are holding our yearly
MANDATORY clinic on February 9th, 2014, from 8:30 AM to 4:00 PM at the
Crabapple Government Center (12624 Broadwell Road, Alpharetta, GA). Use the
bottom floor entrance and walk straight back to the classroom.

To be considered for this opportunity, a young man or woman must be 14
years of age by February 28, 2014, and maintain a grade point average of B
or better. You must also have a passion for the game of baseball, a
willingness to learn the rules and background of the game, and a passion for
maintaining the integrity of the game through the objective adjudication of
the rules.

An application must be filled out and either brought to the clinic, or
mailed to GOA or Charlie Strohecker at 15280 White Columns Drive,
Alpharetta, GA 30004. The other paperwork can be filled out at the clinic.
Be sure to bring a driver's license, permit, school ID, or a copy of one of
them. Our organization's yearly dues are $35 if you are 16 years old or
younger, and $70 if you are over the age of 16. You can bring cash or check
to the clinic to pay this fee. If you are not selected to umpire, or do not
receive games for some reason, these dues will be reimbursed.

You must attend the clinic on February 9th to be considered for an
umpiring position. Candidates who come to us after the clinic date will
have to wait until next year. If you know you are busy this Spring, but
want to umpire in The Summer and Fall, come to the February 9th clinic and
we can have a refresher course before the Summer season, at which point you
will be considered for games assuming you are graded to do so.

If you have the passion and love for the game of baseball, this is a great
opportunity to learn more about the game and make some extra money. If you
have any questions, please email to Charlie Strohecker.
