Junior Thunderwolves baseball to hold tryouts

The Niagara Junior Thunderwolves baseball program will be holding tryouts for its 2019 season throughout August.

To be eligible for a certain team, players must not have their birthday after May 1, 2019; for example, a player would no longer be eligible for the 15U squad if they turn 16 before May 1. Registration for the free tryouts will begin 30 minutes prior to the scheduled tryout start time.

The Junior Thunderwolves aim to develop each player’s baseball abilities while building character and discipline and also emphasizing education; to provide an enjoyable environment through competition and support; and to foster the interest of players and families who are looking to take progressive steps toward the betterment of a player’s physical, mental and emotional capabilities.
