The 2017 Baseball and Softball Skills Sessions will be held on Saturday, April 1, at the Memorial High School Field House. These sessions are designed to allow coaches to observe players during various baseball and softball skill drills. Coaches evaluate player performance and use this information during the league drafts the following week. The overall objective is to draft teams of relatively equal talent level for competitive balance.
The skills sessions are for players 12 and under (13’s and older do not attend). Players who are new to WMLL must bring a copy of their birth certificate to the sessions. Please arrive on time for your scheduled session and register at the check-in table.

Bring your glove and wear gym shoes (no cleats or hard-soled shoes)! Once a player completes their drills, they are free to go. The coach who selects your player in the draft the following week will contact you regarding team meetings and practices.
