The Oak Park and River Forest Pony Baseball 13u National Team advanced to the North Zone this past weekend. Unfortunately, the team was eliminated in the semi final round. A collection of photos was posted online here. Congratulations to the team on their bid for glory. Thank you to the coaches and parents for representing our Lindberg community.
Colt tryouts will be at Lindberg Park West Diamond on Saturday May 21 at 4pm. 15- and 16-year-olds are encouraged to attend. Colt baseball will be played between June 1st and July 31st.
Opening Day is Saturday, April 23rd. Please plan on attending a game, having a hot dog at the concession stand and enjoying spring time at Lindberg Park.
Below is the list of evaluation sessions. If a player cannot make it to their specific session, they can come to another session. The sessions on March 20th are for pitcher and catcher evaluations only. These are for players that regularly pitch or catch. This is not to say that they won't be given the opportunity on their team to do either in the coming season.
Oak Park and River Forest kicks off every season with a "first pitch" player/parent meeting. For any player that is new to the league or is a returning player from the recreational division, this meeting is mandatory. The agenda will manage expectations for the player evaluation process and provide information for the coming season.
Evaluation numbers will be issued to all players as well as a schedule for the sessions.
Who: All new players and all returning Knight Division players
Where: South Cafeteria, OPRF High School
When: 7pm, Tue March 1st.
