Thank you for participating in player evaluations and being a part of Chaska Traveling Baseball. We were excited to see the boys working hard and having fun over the last two weekends!

The Traveling Baseball Committee will use the next week to align players based on evaluations, select coaches, and communicate final teams. 

 

Below is an outline of process to form teams:

  • Coach interviews
  • Compile player scores (done by P2P)
  • Select head coaches based on interview and player scores
  • Finalize teams with head coach input
  • Teams selections posted -  Sunday, September 24th
