Player evaluations are scheduled for Sunday, March 1st at Fountain City Ballpark. We are excited to announce that this year's format for player evaluations will be in the form of a Baseball Combine with expanded evaluation stations. Everyone will need to come to the Recreation Center first to sign-in. We are also excited to have Central High School and Gresham Middle School Coaching Staff and Players participating in this year's evaluation. Concessions will be open serving food and drink for those interested.

Players will need to have their glove, bat, and helmet for evaluations. We also ask that players arrive wearing tennis shoes for inside evaluations with a pair of cleats to change into for outside evaluations. The FCRC Equipment Locker Room will be open in the Commission Building for those that are in need of equipment (i.e. glove, helmet, cleats, bat, sliding pants, etc.).

Below is a detailed schedule showing the arrival times for each age division. To help avoid line clusters, we have broken down the arrival times based on the first letter of the player's last name.  We ask that you arrive at least 15 minutes prior to your timeslot to sign-in, and if you have not yet registered or need to make a payment, we ask that you arrive at least 30 minutes prior to your timeslot. Also note that the ages listed below are based on how old the player is on May 1st, unless the player has moved up to a higher division.

6U DIVISION: (TeeBall players 5-6 years old)
2:00pm  -  6U players with the last name starting with A-D
2:15pm  -  6U players with the last name starting with E-H
2:30pm  -  6U players with the last name starting with I-P
2:45pm  -  6U players with the last name starting with Q-Z

8U DIVISION: (Coach Pitch players 7-8 years old)

4U DIVISION: (WeeBall players 4 years old and younger)
2:30pm  -  All 4U players  (See clarifications below for this division)

There will not be a draft system for the 4U WeeBall division. We try to honor requests as much as possible and then randomly assign teams. We realize there is a gap between the time you register and the time things get started in April. So, we wanted to offer you the opportunity to come by the ballpark on Sunday, sign-in in the Recreation Center, and meet with the other 4U players and staff for some baseball activities. Drop in anytime Sunday from 2:30 to 3:30. You can take a look at the ballpark and enjoy some of our concessions, make payment arrangements if you have not already done so, ask some questions about the league, and look through the FCRC Equipment Locker Room for any equipment needs you may have. We will also have an area for WeeBall players to have some fun as we'll have some whiffle balls and bats and some bases for them to explore the game of baseball on their level.
