The Elmhurst Emeralds, the travel softball branch of the Elmhurst Baseball and Softball Leagues, Inc. (EBSL), will be holding their tryouts for the 2012-2013 season as follows:
Sunday, August 312th, Plunkett Park (west Avenue and Utley) in Elmhurst
1:00p - 2:30p: 10U and 12U teams (please arrive by 12:45p to register)
2:30p - 4:00p: 14U and 16U teams (please arrive by 2:15p to register)
WE ARE ESPECIALLY LOOKING FOR PITCHERS AT EACH AGE LEVEL
Birthdate eligibility for each age level is as follows:
10U: Born on or after January 1, 2002
12U: January 1, 2000 - December 31, 2001
14U: January 1, 1998 - December 31, 1999
16U: January 1, 1996 - December 31, 1997
The full-time Emeralds teams are intended for players whose skills, determination, competitive desire and maturity level lead them to try something beyond in-house softball. Our teams compete in Fall leagues, train indoors over the Winter and play in both leagues and tournaments in the Spring and Summer months. The vast majority of our games are played within fairly short distances of Elmhurst.
This past season was our first as a full-time program and expectations were definitely exceeded, as the program brought home two league titles, three tournament titles and four runner-up finishes, with each level capturing at least one title. In addition, we held the immensely successful, inaugural Elmhurst Emerald City Classic, hosting twenty-six teams and sixty-two games over four days in early-July.
We are excited as we enter year two and look to YOU to help in the growth of the program.

We have added a second tryout date...this Sunday, August 12th, due to the large number of families that expressed that they were out of town for last Friday's tryouts.
