Player Evaluations

Date: January 26, 2019

"League Age" is the player's age as of 8/31/2019.

All players, other than Instructional Division (T-Ball), are required to try out.  Every effort must be made to have the players there at their scheduled time.   

Players should dress comfortably and wear sneakers.  We ask that each player bring their own glove, bat, and batting helmet.  We will have extras on hand if needed.

If you absolutely are unable to make it at the scheduled time, please send an email to [email protected] as soon as possible.  We will do our best to make other arrangements, but we cannot guarantee anything.

Major League Baseball Pitch Hit & Run (PHR) is a FREE, 1-day event for boys and girls ages 7-14* that is simple to host. PHR is the official skills competition of Major League Baseball and can be hosted by any organization, league, civic group or set of volunteers in the community. An administrative kit is provided and the competition is free of charge for participants and hosts.

Participants compete in either the Baseball Division or Softball Division and have the opportunity to advance through four levels of competition including Locals, Sectionals, Team Championships, and the National Finals during MLB All-Star Week. Providing this great opportunity for your community is as easy as:

HTRBA Night at the Thunder

The HTRBA Night at the Thunder is scheduled for Thursday, May 16. Tickets can be ordered through your Team Parent for $11 each. A portion of each ticket is returned to HTRBA as a donation. Game time is scheduled for 7:00 pm.

Players in uniform will be able to parade around the field before the game, as well as stand with a Trenton Thunder player on the field during the National Anthem. There will be a fireworks display following the game. As an added bonus, it is also "Thirsty Thursday", so there will be discounted adult beverages during the game.
