Baseball tryouts Saturday
DIXFIELD -- Tryouts for the major leagues (ages 9-12) of the Western Mountain Cal Ripken Baseball League (Rumford, Mexico, Dixfield area) will take place from 10 a.m. to noon Saturday at Dirigo High School.
Prior to tryouts, there will be a coach's meeting for both major and minor leagues from 8-10 a.m. All coaches are strongly encouraged to attend. For tryouts, the cut off date is April 30th for turning 9 or not turning 13. All new interested boys and girls ages 9-12 who want to play baseball must try out, unless they were already on a previous roster.
As registration was March 29-30 for the league, all non-registered players must register prior to tryouts at their town's local recreation center, Rumford (GRCC), Mexico, Roxbury and Byron (River Valley Rec.), Dixfield (Dixfield Rec.), Peru and Canton (Peru Rec.), Rumford Point and Andover (Rumford Point Baseball). Any appropriate aged player who registers after tryouts will not be automatically put on a roster and will be evaluated by a Western Maine Cal Ripken representative to determine their qualification for major and minor league play.
Any player, who was on a previous roster and doesn't register before tryouts, isn't guaranteed to be placed on the same team, depending on the town in which they live. For further information contact your appropriate recreation department. All league business can be directed to league president, Eddie Paterson, 364-9352 or email@example.com.
