Mosquito Select 2018… Frequently asked questions…

Do I have to play house league?  Yes. All select players must play house league with West Hill.

Is there an additional cost? Yes, 2018 Select fees will be set over the winter. This covers

tournament entry fees, umpires, and select uniform jersey and fitted hat.  The fee will be

about $170

 

When are the tournaments?

We will enter 5 tournaments over the summer, including the West Hill tournament.

We will hopefully qualify for the provincials that are held over the Labour Day

Weekend. All tournaments have a Friday night game, usually around 5-6pm.

There are 5 planned tournaments:

June 8-10

Wexford

Scarborough

June 22-24

Saugeen Shores

Near Sauble Beach

July 20-22

West Hill

Scarborough

August 3-5

Southwest London

London, ON

August 10-12?

TBA Playoffs

Toronto

If we qualify for the Provincials, we will play on Labour Day Weekend, Sept 1-3.

 

Any other games?  Yes, we play in the TBA East Select Loop, where we will play on Sunday

nights.  I believe there will be around 10-12 games.  Half those games will home games for us,

usually at either Highland Creek or Burrows Hall.

 

How much travelling is involved?  Along with the tournaments, we also play in a Sunday night\

loop in the eastern part of Toronto, at parks such as Wishing Well (VP/401), Bond Park

(Leslie/Lawrence) and Stan Wadlow in East York.  (most games will be east of Yonge)

 

What is the time commitment?  Let’s just say, I hope you and your kid love baseball. Along

with the Sunday night games, and the tournaments, we will have at least one full practice each

week, likely on Saturdays.  We will also have batting practice at Heron Park on other nights when

possible.

For games, all players need to arrive one hour before game time.  Below are two examples of

typical weeks, one regular week, and one tournament week:

My child played Rookie select last year. Anything new this year?  Pitchers will be limited by

pitch counts, rather than maximum number of innings.  There are no leadoffs in mosquito, but

stealing bases is permitted. There is no ‘time out’ to stop play.

 

When are the tryouts?

Tryouts will be in May:

Highland Creek park: Sat. May 5 1-4pm

Highland Creek Park: Sat. May 12 1 - 4pm

Once the team is set, we’ll start practicing and will have our first league game on Sunday May 27.
