Dear Parents and Players!
I wanted to start out this message by saying “Thank You” to you all, from all of us! These past two years have been challenging to say the least. The world has gone through some significant changes and the situation has had an enduring effect on us all, I know some more than others. So, “Thank You” for sticking with Renton Little League. Without you, there is no us!
Evaluations for AAA and Major level Baseball and Softball will be February 26 at the Liberty High School Softball field. The picture below captures the area. The best way to get here would be to drive North on 164th Ave SE. There is a drop off point and then an area to turn around. If you would like to wait for your player while they are being evaluated, please drive over to the High School parking lot to wait. There is not space on 164th and the local neighborhoods are pretty crowded.
The softball field has an artificial turf infield, so evaluations will be held rain or shine. Players will be evaluated on fielding, throwing, running, and hitting (pitching is optional). Please dress appropriate for the weather and activity. We will be staggering times as follows:
· Majors Baseball: 10:00am to 11:30am
· Majors and AAA Softball: 12:00pm to 1:30pm
· AAA Baseball: 2:00pm to 3:30pm
The outdoor mask mandate ended on February 18. Feel free to voluntarily wear a mask if you choose. Also, if you are not feeling well, please do not come to evaluations!
If at all possible, please have your player warm up, stretch, run, and throw prior to arriving at evaluations. This will help us limit exposure and ensure that we are done in a timely fashion.
Please have your player bring their own water/hydration drink, glove, helmet, hat, and bat. Tennis shoes and molded cleats are acceptable. Metal cleats will not be allowed. No gum, no sunflower seeds.
This is the main evaluation that we need your player to attend. If you cannot attend this evaluation, please notify us as soon as possible so we can arrange a different time and place (be prepared for “makeup” evaluations to happen this weekend prior to the scheduled evaluations).
Thank you for all your support and we look forward to seeing you at evaluations!
President of Renton Little League
