    1. It’s a winter league. You pay a lot of money, they promise scouts will be there, some guys get signed, most get released during spring training… honestly the same thing that happens everywhere.


    1. Those vary with different league rules. Frontier is 27. The United Shore has an age limit (I think…) and everyone else really doesn’t. The Pecos claims to have one, but older players still play in the league if approved.


  1. Hi Ms. Thompson I’m a ball player with various scholarships to play college baseball at the moment. I’m 23 years old though and my dream is to play in Japan. Will any independent Japanese Baseball League teams be hosting tryouts in America? I’m from Florida so if they were in the south that would be preferable. I’m really just trying to find the right scouting event to attend.
