USA Baseball has a long standing tradition of attracting top players in the United States to try out for their national teams. USA Baseball partners with the MLB to promote and develop the game of baseball on the grassroots level, both nationally and internationally.
Should you have your player tryout for the National Team? If you think your player would like to play baseball in high school, college or professionally, the National Team tryout is very beneficial:
1. The tryout process exposes your player to the 5 tools of baseball and the key measurements and trainability of those measurements for success.
2. The tryout process exposes your player to other top players in your area, region, nationally and internationally.
3. Your player will gain feed back on key areas they can improve.
4. Your player will see what is possible in the game and it can motivate them to work harder.
5. The tryout process is a phenomenal experience.
How do you start the tryout process? Hard 90 is the Sacramento Region Section operator for USA Baseball. Hard 90 is holding a tryout on Friday, May 17th, 2019.
Have you dreamed of playing for Team USA? Ever wondered where you stack up against your age group?
Join us this Friday, May 17th for a USA Baseball ID Camp at Hard 90.
These ID Camps will offer players with birth years, 2003, 2004, 2005, 2006, 2007 and 2008 the opportunity to be evaluated by USA Baseball NTIS staff for consideration to participate in the Northern California USA Baseball NTIS Combine, the National USA Baseball Champions Cup in Cary, NC and the USA Baseball National Team.
Players that attend the camp will participate in a 2 hour workout and test 5 tool measurements, including throwing velocity and batted ball exit speed. All players will receive an evaluation of these measurements, as well as where they stand in their age group.
The Sacramento Region has a rich history of players participating in USA Baseball events; including Max Stassi (Houston Astros), Nick Madrigal (Chicago White Sox Organization) and Tyler Malone (Oregon State), among others.
The ID Camps have a limited number of spots.
