Evaluations and tryouts typically occur in February. Once scheduled, that information will be posted to the right. All players will be placed on a team following evaluations/tryouts. Evaluations and tryouts will involve running, fielding, catching, throwing and batting. Each player should bring a glove, bat and batting helmet. Only USA Baseball bats are permitted. Tee ball bats are not allowed for Rookie, Minor or Majors Divisions. Tee Ball bats will display the text "Only For Use With Approved Tee Balls" (typically in small lettering on the barrel of the bat) in addition to the USA Baseball stamp. See Little League's Bat Resource page for more information. Evaluations and tryouts are held on indoor turf fields, so turf shoes, plastic sole cleats or tennis shoes are acceptable.

Wee Ball/Tee Ball: N/A


  • All players new to the Rookie Division must attend the evaluation. 
  • All Rookie Division players will be drafted onto a team following evaluations.


  • If a player age 9-12 has not played in Eastern's Minor or Major Division, they must attend tryouts.
  • If a player desires to remain on their Minor or Major Division team from the prior Spring season, they should not attend tryouts.
  • If a player played in the Minor Division in the prior Spring season and wants to be eligible to be drafted by a Major Division team for this Spring season, they must attend tryouts.
  • Players not drafted by a Major Division team will automatically return to their Minor Division team from the prior Spring season or be placed in the Minor Division draft if they did not play on a Minor Division team the prior Spring season.
  • Minor Division players that entered the Major Division draft but were not selected are eligible to be called up to the Major Division during the season on a temporary or permanent basis.
