Michigan Youth Travel Baseball Tryouts will be held in Livonia, MI.
All Surrounding Cities Welcome...
Just an update, we have added a couple dates for tryouts. We have added Tuesday, 8-4 at 6PM Ford Field Dia 4. And Friday, 8-7 at 6PM Ford Field Dia 4. Ford field is located in Livonia off of Schoolcraft Road behind Eddie Edgar Ice Arena. We felt 8-15 and 8-16 is kind of late so we added two more dates. There will be no Hornets Yellow team. We will only have one 12U team so coaches can focus time on the one team. All that make the team are welcome to also play Fall ball with us this year as it does not look good for Fall sports.
It will be KVBSA league play for Spring / Summer along with 3-4 total tournaments including Cooperstown on 7-10 thru 7-16. We are looking for pitchers and complete players that can hit, run, field and throw.
Our core is made up of great families and great kids.

Tips for Tryouts & What to Expect:
Don't be late! If you are serious, let us know. We plan on having a variety of players from just looking to seriously wanting to play for the Hornets. We want the serious, committed ones!
Listen at all times. We are looking for coach-able kids. The ones that can take what we teach and execute. We want hard workers, willing to go the extra mile. We want kids that love to play baseball.
What to Expect:
We will put players in a variety of situations where we can look hard at mechanics and fundamentals. Pitchers may throw on the side to catchers, in some cases they may throw to live hitters. We will split out into groups working on ground balls and fly balls.
Each hitter will get the same amount of pitches. Don't be discouraged if you swing and miss, even at all of them. We are looking at hitting stances, weight, triggers (load), front foot, back foot, head on the ball, bat speed, hips, etc. Swing at anything you can potentially hit. We can spot good swings.
Above all, just come and have fun. We don't expect the kids to know all the correct mechanics. There are a lot of little things we will each notice. We will spot potential.
