SALL 11U Tournament Team Update - After taking a couple months off to decompress from a successful summer tourney season with two 2nd Places and one Championship, our Titans kept their win streak alive through 8 games in a row dominating pool play and winning a tough Semifinal vs a good Fox Chapel host team. We lost the Final after letting Burrell sneak back in during the final two innings. We outscored our opponents 37-19 across 4 games, and played our usual shut-down defense.
We are wrapping up our 2022 year with a challenge against the best competition we'll have seen this year playing in an "A" Wood Bat Tourney hosted by North Hills AA this weekend at Ted Bartlett Field adjacent to Ross Park Mall. Our games are scheduled as follows for anyone looking to come cheer us on.

@ 2 PM - vs Fox Chapel
@ 6 PM - @ SW Pittsburgh
Sun Oct 16:
@ 8/10/12 - TBD Quarterfinals
@ 2/4 PM - TBD Semifinals

We are rescheduling the 7 and 8 yr old Tourney tryouts for this Wednesday at Crawshaw from 5:45pm - 7:15pm for the 7s and 7:15pm - 9:00pm for the 8s. Please be there 15 minutes before hand to warm up. We realize that this is a school night and want to be done as close to 9 as possible. That means we have to be diligent in running our drills and keep our timing to make sure that a fair evaluation can be completed. Thank you for your understanding.
We also wanted to let you know that the 10 year old tryouts will be this coming Saturday from 4:00pm to 6:30pm at Farrell. Please arrive at least 15 minutes early to warmup.
We are still confirming a time and day for the 9u tryouts and will email that info as soon as possible.
As always, we encourage all kids to come try out as we like to field multiple teams at each age group if possible. The more tourney games and reps the kids get, the better they become. Tournament play is an awesome experience. Two teams at each age group would be ideal for the league.
Due to the rain today and the rain expected through the night, we are going to postpone the 7u/8u Tourney tryouts tomorrow. The field will not be playable. We are going to try and have the first tryout this week, most likely Thursday or Friday. We will communicate a new time once we verify which fields will be available.
Just a reminder that this Sunday will be the 1st Tournament Team tryout for those players who will be playing Instructional baseball this coming Spring. The 7u tryout will be held at Crawshaw Field (Kiwanis) from 9am to 11am. The 8u tryout will be held at Crawshaw from 11am to 1pm. As written in our tournament team guidelines, a player is expected to attend at least one of the two Sunday tryouts (next one is Oct 15th) in order to be considered for the tournament team. Players should arrive at least 15 minutes prior to start time in order to warm up. It is going to be chilly/cool so please have them dress appropriately. They should bring a glove, a bat and a drink for short breaks.
The area is expected to get some rain from Hurricane Ian on the weekend. If the field is unplayable, we will send an email in the morning to relay any cancellations.
If you have any questions that cannot be answered in the attached guidelines, please reach out to Jeff Steigerwald (email@example.com) or Ritch Rupert (firstname.lastname@example.org).
