The Puget Sound Senior Baseball League (PSSBL), one of the largest amateur adult baseball leagues in the U.S., will conduct open tryouts for all baseball players, age 19 and over, during the course of three weekends in March. The 2016 tryouts start on Sunday, March 6th, at Edmonds Community College. Players age 35 & over should attend the 9:00am-12:00pm session (check in at 8:30am). Players age 19 & over should attend the 12:00pm-3pm session (check in at 11:30pm).
A reminder that Edmonds Community College's Triton Field is an all-turf facility, so NO METAL SPIKES ARE ALLOWED. Also, no tobacco products or seeds are allowed either.
Other tryout dates (morning and afternoon age groups are the same, but start times vary):
- Saturday, March 12th - Bellevue College, 35+ at 9:00am; 19+ at 12:00pm
- Sunday, March 20th - Meridian Park in Shoreline, 35+ at 10:00am; 19+ at 1:00pm
Those who turn 19 any time during the 2016 calendar year - even as late as December 31, 2016 - are eligible to join the league this season. There is no fee to try out for the PSSBL. Players may attend one, two, or all three tryout dates. Edmonds Community College is located at 20000 68th Avenue West in Lynnwood. Bellevue College is located at 3000 Landerholm Circle SE in Bellevue. Meridian Park is located at 16765 Wallingford Avenue North in Shoreline.
The non-profit PSSBL is comprised of over 1,000 players forming 66 teams in eight different divisions. The divisions are organized based on age and skill level, ranging from highly competitive to purely recreational. Formed in 1989, this year marks the PSSBL's 28th season of operation.
