AYBA operates a Summer OOP All-Star baseball program with teams that will play in the Dizzy Dean summer program consisting of local, district and state tournaments and potentially the Dizzy Dean World Series depending on the age group. Teams begin play late May through late July after the conclusion of the Spring Recreation Baseball Season. Players that make one of AYBA’s Summer OOP All-Star teams must make the commitment for the full summer. Only registered players in AYBA’s Spring Recreation baseball program in the 6 – 13 year old age groups are eligible to tryout for the Summer OOP All-Star teams in their respective age groups.
Tryouts are mandatory for consideration for OOP All-Stars. Players plan to attend tryouts for the entire duration. Players will be evaluated by our OOP All-Star coaches, potentially independent travel coaches and AYBA Board Members. All registered players in AYBA’s 6 – 13 year Spring age groups are eligible to tryout for their respective age group. There is no cost to tryout. There will be a cost to participate in the OOP All-Star program (uniform, travel expense and tournament fees). The cost and time commitment varies by age group and team and coaches will be able to answer these questions at the tryout. Please keep in mind that this is a true tryout and not every player will be selected to play OOP All-Stars.
What is OOP All-Star Baseball? OOP baseball is highly competitive, tournament level baseball focused on "winning baseball games". A large percentage of the parks we play against take "winning baseball games" very seriously during the Summer OOP All-Star season. Our OOP coaches will be focused on selecting the top players in each respective league with the intent to field the best teams possible to represent AYBA.
Should your child tryout? If your family and your child are willing to make the time commitment and fully understand that this is a significantly higher level of baseball, then yes, please tryout.
What if my child is not at the level needed for OOP All-Stars or doesn’t make the team? As in previous Summer’s, AYBA will once again have a Summer Rec League. The League has been very successful. The focus is on player development with a clinic type league-wide practice once per week, a second practice with your team followed by games on Saturday. Not only did the players last summer have fun, they learned a great deal about baseball. If you are looking for a Summer Baseball Program that will provide high quality instruction for your child, this is the program for you.
If you have any questions regarding tryout dates for OOP All-stars, or AYBAs Summer Rec Baseball Program please contact Mike Harris at 404-312-8792
