Many enthusiastic young players took part in the trials for the 2019 Charter Player Development Program these past two weekends.
Southern Mariners, Eastern Athletics, Twins and Baycats all hosted tryouts that were well-attended by junior players. Participants wishing to make the 2019 CPDP squads turned out to their respective charter’s trials for some intense and enriching sessions in which they showed off their skills and their desire to further learn and improve.
Overall across the four charters, there were upwards of 270 players who participated in the trials, displaying their talent in throwing, fielding, hitting, pitching and more.
Charter Head Coaches Marshall Skinner, David Hargreaves, Scott Meager and Kelli Zablan led the way with the help of their fantastic assistant coaches. After watching so many talented youths make the most of this opportunity and give it their best shot, coaches are finalising their squad selections, which will be announced on Friday, December 14th.
The first session of the 2019 CPDP will commence on Monday, January 28th. All-Star teams will be announced on Friday, March 1st.
Baseball Victoria would like to thank all players, coaches and volunteers who made the tryouts such a success. The BV team is looking forward to seeing the progression of these players through the program over the upcoming months.
