MLL conducts a 1-day evaluation open to anyone wishing to play in the league, meeting all of the eligibility requirements. If you are unable to attend the evalutation day there is usually a makeup day scheduled soon after. Each player will be evaluated on their throwing, fielding and batting skills. NO ONE IS CUT. Using these evaluations, the coaches will participate in a draft that will fill out each team’s roster fairly.
No they do not.
The evaluation takes place sometime in January, and practices start in early April. Games start in mid-April. The championship game for the Majors League & end of season cookout will be in late June. Sign-up on our MLL Blog or follow us on Facebook to stay up to date with news and events!
