Skill Evaluations/Player Drafts for Spring 2024

Skill evaluations are upon us and we are excited to see and meet all of your players. 

Date/Time: Sat, February 24, 2024 (1PM-3PM) and Sun, February 25, 2024 (1PM-5PM) 
Location: Monocacy Middle School, 8009 Opossumtown Pike, Frederick, MD 21702
Who Needs to Attend: Ages 7-12 (Timeslots assigned by age)

Here are some special notes about skill evaluations and the draft:
  • Players will be given the opportunity to run through various baseball drills. Please know that this isn't Try Outs; no one gets cut.  Our goal is to match a players skill level with the appropriate opportunity and help our coaches formulate their teams.
  • During the drills, Coaches will be evaluating the players and then the Majors draft will occur shortly after. Once the Majors draft is completed, players that have been drafted to a Majors Team will be notified by the Manager of that team. Any player in this age group that was not drafted to a Majors Team will then be drafted to a Minors Team.
  • Who Needs to Attend: Ages 7-12 who want to play in Minors-Player Pitch and new Majors players are required to attend.
    • 9 - 12 YO: All players age 9-12 are eligible for the Majors.  Please notify us in advance if you don't want your 9-12 YO in the Majors. 
    • If a 9-12 YO isn't drafted by a Majors team, they'll be drafted to the Minors. 
    • If a 7-8 YO fails to attend Evaluations, they'll be placed on a Coach Pitch team.
  • A 1 hour time slot will be assigned to players by age.  We have two days to allow for some scheduling conflicts.  If your player can't attend either day, please contact our Player Agent at [email protected].
  • Only players being evaluated will be permitted in the gym.

What do you need to bring?  Please bring all your gear. At a minimum:
  • water
  • glove
  • bat
  • helmet
  • NO Cleats
  • Protective cups are recommended for all males.  Male catchers must wear cups.
  • Catching gear if the player wants to be evaluated as a catcher 
If you don't have the required gear, please let us know.  We have equipment available to those in need.

Additional details from our Player Agent: 
  • Majors: Due to registration numbers this year, there will be a full redraft of players.      
  • Minors-Kid Pitch: FNLL conducts a full re-draft of all players for all teams. Minors-Coach Pitch: The Player Agent and President assign players to teams based on information provided during registration.
  • Tee Ball: The Player Agent and President assign players to teams based on information provided during registration.
  • All potential Minors-Kid Pitch and new Major players, unless excused by the Player Agent, must participate in the League evaluations. Those players who are not excused cannot play in the Major League during the current season but are permitted to participate in the Minor League.  
  • Managers will attend the player evaluations to assess the players’ skill levels.
  • All players aged 9 to 12 are eligible to be drafted into the Majors, regardless of the division that was chosen during registration. Parents/Guardians may opt-out of playing for the Majors. (Division cost differential may be requested)
  • All players aged 7 to 11 are eligible to be drafted into the Minors-Kid Pitch, regardless of the division that was chosen during registration (Division cost differential may be requested)
  • Any 7 or 8 year old who is not drafted by the Minor-Kid Pitch League or does not try out for the Minor League will be placed on a Coach-Pitch team.
  • When there are two or more siblings in the draft, and the first sibling is drafted by a manager, that manager automatically has the option of drafting the other sibling during their next selection. If the manager doesn’t exercise this option, the second sibling can be drafted by any team.
  • In the event that a drafted player cannot compete or opts-out, an undrafted but draft eligible player may be called upon.
  • The Majors draft will occur on Sunday February 25th. The Minors-Kid Pitch draft will occur on Tuesday February 27th. Player draft positions are not divulged, even after the draft is completed.
