Evanston Travel Baseball Tryouts for 2023 Season

The Evanston Baseball / Softball Association announces its tryouts for the 2023 baseball season.
All tryouts will be at James Park. To be eligible to tryout, players must:

  • Live in School District 65 and/or be eligible to attend ETHS by living in School District 202
  • Not miss more than a week during the travel season, basically from Memorial Day forward.  (For example, a week at Camp Echo is acceptable. But two-week Camp Echo trips or other longer family vacations, etc. mean that a player should not tryout)
  • Not miss the final week of the season during the playoffs in late July
  • Play in the EBSA house league (for third through sixth graders only)
  • NOT PLAY WITH ANY OTHER TRAVEL BASEBALL PROGRAM

For more information regarding the EBSA Travel Baseball program, please see https://www.evanstonbaseball.com/travel-baseball or contact Dave Haracz at dolanharacz@sbcglobal.net or Coach Joe Knudsen at jknudsenbaseball8@gmail.com.
Please note that these are the only tryouts that will be scheduled for the EBSA Travel Baseball. There will NOT be any winter or spring tryouts. OPTIONAL indoor training will start in November. More specific information on pre-season training will be forthcoming.
