Player Evaluations

NSLL Player Evaluation Dates/Times

Players are put through a series of stations that have them demonstrate their ability to hit, catch, throw, and run. Team managers and league officials observe and score each player based upon their assessment of the player’s skills and abilities.

What is the difference between tryouts and evaluations?

Tryouts: For our Majors, Minor AAA, and Minor AA divisions, only players that demonstrate the ability to play at each respective level are chosen. Major managers choose first then AAA then AA.

Evaluations: For our Minor A division, players are evaluated to ensure the teams are fairly distributed with higher and lesser skilled/experienced players.

Who should attend?
All players age 6 or older are encouraged to attend. If a player does not tryout, they will be placed in the lowest division for their age but no lower than the division they played in last year and be chosen anonymously via a “hat pick” (name picked out of a hat) toward the end of the draft (Majors, Minor AAA, Minor AA only). 

Location: Future Prospects - San Rafael - 502 Irwin Street
Player Last Names A-K Saturday Jan 28; L-Z Sunday Jan 29
