    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.


  2. There is a Post-Draft tryout for the Frontier League, being hosted by the Evansville Otters and Joliet Slammers on Monday, June 17th in Westfield, IN. An Arizona Diamondbacks rep will also be in attendance. Email for tryout flyer is attached below.


  3. I can’t get there but I was signed by the Newly formed southwest league of professional baseball January and it never happened: verified at 96 at the Atlantic league tryout. I played JUCO and NBC but having a hard time getting a look because I have no professional experience.


  4. Is there an age limit for any of the leagues? And are there any walk on tryouts? I played on Amateur league here in Pinellas county Florida and attended a Indy pro showcase a couple years ago. I know that I have what it takes to get to the minors and then the major leagues but I keep getting over looked by scouts.


  5. hey my name is edwin rodriguez I was playin for the phillies around 6 years int he minor league system and I am looking for a opportunity I from dominican republic


  6. Do not go to the Prospect Dugout tryout in FL. I went this past year and it was awful. They admit way too many people and then don’t know how to organize them all. They tried to force people to leave by requiring you be at the field 7 hours before your game. You’ll be in front of a scout for at most 5 minutes the entire time. Save your money and go to a smaller workout.


  7. Hi my name is reed jones I’m 20 yrs old from Maryland and am looking to further myself in the leaugue I’ve played for fifteen years throughout high school and public leagues I was always the fastest runner have a beautiful natural curve when I pitch could hit the ball and steal a base and play outfield like Nobody’s business please if any one has anything that would help contact me at 410-463-2489 or email me


  8. Mexican Leagues WILL be playing this Spring. There are 14 leagues UNDER the AAA Mexican League seeking players. American Torque Sports will be conducting tryouts for players interested in playing South of the Border. JANUARY 30th in Yuma, Arizona and JANUARY 31st in Chandler, Arizona. Those with Hispanic names or heritage are considered non-imports in Mexican baseball. Contracts range all the way up to $10,000 a month plus all expenses. We will have Mexican scouts from teams and leagues at these tryouts and players should be prepared to sign contracts. Registration on-line is $100 and $125 at the gate. Both tryouts are limited to 40 players and once we reach that mark then registrations will be cut off. Each session is 6 hours long (from 10 am to 4 pm) and you will receive lunch and a t-shirt. Go to and get signed up today!
