The Fairfield Braves 14u 2021 team will be conducting tryouts on July 28th and July 30th 7:30-9:00 at Millikin/Morris Park 6116 Morris Rd. Fairfield, Ohio 45011 (directly behind Fairfield North Elementary school). Please arrive 15-20 minutes early for registration. Please text message Ryan Kerby 5132075274 if you plan on attending (not required but we would appreciate it). Players may not turn 15 before May 1, 2021 and must be complete with their 2020 season to participate in tryouts. If you are interested but still have team games to play please send a text and we can set up a tryout after your players season ends.
After serving as our head coach/manager for 3 years Chris Kelly will be turning the team over to new head coach/manager Ryan Kerby.
Ryan is a FHS Baseball alumni with 12 years coaching experience in the Butler County Area. Ryan, the coaching staff and trainers will be committed to providing the players with the knowledge and skills they will need going forward into high school baseball.
We will begin by playing in the fall by practicing 2 days a week or playing in a weekend fall league. From there we will go to a no baseball activity period in November and December where we will conduct meetings (online and in person) to promote baseball IQ and leadership skills. We will also meet during that time for some speed and agility training. During the months of January and February we will be practicing indoors two days a week. Team meetings will continue during this time as well. As soon as the weather breaks in March we will be outside practicing 3-4 days a week leading up to our season which will start in mid April.
We intend to play in the swol silver division. Our season will be comprised of 15 home games at the well maintained waterworks park in Fairfield, 15 away games in the local area, 2-3 local tournaments, 1-2 regional tournaments (2-6 hours). This will put us between 40-50 games total for the season.
We are currently looking to add depth at all positions but pitching ability and experience is desired.
Feel free to contact Coach Ryan Kerby (5132075274) with any questions you may have. We look forwarding to seeing you at tryouts.
