Saratoga Stars Youth Travel Baseball is holding try-outs for all Spring teams on Saturday, October 20th


The Saratoga Stars Youth Travel Baseball program is excited to announce tryouts for the 2019 Spring travel baseball season for all teams on Saturday, October 20th.

Registration is required prior to attending... REGISTER NOW!

2018 was an exceptional year for the Stars program with multiple teams successfully competing at the highest level of Empire baseball. The 10U & 12U Stars teams both won the New Hampshire Bobcats Memorial Day Classic playing against some of the top baseball talent in the New England area. The 12U Stars team also won the Bring it & Swing it Labor Day Tournament in Guilderland while the 10U Stars team finished as the runner-up for their age group. Our 11U Stars team also had a strong showing finishing 3rd in both tournaments. Most importantly, the players worked hard, had fun, strengthened friendships and continued to develop their baseball skills. We are looking forward to building on 2018 with a strong 2019 season.

Saratoga Stars Youth Travel Baseball is a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) organization established & dedicated to offer Saratoga Springs Little League baseball players, ages 8-12, an opportunity to develop and improve their baseball abilities, teamwork & sportsmanship. The travel baseball program independently supplements the Saratoga Springs LL rec program to offer additional practice and gameplay against competitive travel teams in the area. The team name celebrates the rich baseball heritage of this area & dates back to one of the original professional baseball teams in Saratoga Springs, NY in the 1800's.

All players must try-out and be selected to join a team. In addition, Saratoga Stars players must participate in Saratoga Springs Little League for the spring season. Players trying out for the 12U Stars team must either be in 6th grade OR participating in the Little League majors division in 2019.

Age eligibility for the Spring 2019 season is:

  • 9U is all players born after May 1, 2009
  • 10U is all players born after May 1, 2008
  • 11U is all players born after May 1 2007
  • 12U 6th grade OR born after Sept 1, 2006

Try-outs for the teams will be held on this Saturday, October 20th at the west side fields at the following times (arrive early to warm up as tryouts will begin promptly at the scheduled time):

  • 9U – 12PM on the minor field
  • 10U – 11AM on the minor field
  • 11U – 12PM on the major field
  • 12U – 11AM on the major field

If a player wants to be considered for a team above their age group, they will need to attend the tryout for both age groups. Teams are formed in late fall to allow players the opportunity to continue to develop their skills during winter workouts prior to the ’19 Spring season.

The Spring registration fee for Saratoga Stars Travel Baseball is approximately $150 per player. The cost covers ESBL league fees, insurance, field use, umpire fees, and baseballs. Uniforms, winter workouts and tournaments are an additional cost. Fees will be collected after having been selected to a team.
