We had an issue with the venue where we were holding our NorEasters' tryouts. Mizuno Management has decided to severe the relationship with PYBS due to the competitive structure of the NorEasters and will no longer allow Plymouth Youth Baseball to use their facilities. They feel we are a competing product to their teams so allowing us to use the facility creates a conflict of interest.
While this decision comes as a shock to us, we have to move forward with very little time to keep pace with the 2018 season. Frank DiTondo, owner of Atlantic Baseball Club, in Hanover has graciously moved his entire program around this Friday and has opened his facility for us to utilize.
The date of the tryout remains the same - Friday, January 19. The times change slightly as the 11U team will start at 6pm and go to 7:30. The 12U team tryout will start at 7:30 - but players can arrive at 7pm to warm up as the facility can accommodate over 70 players at a time.
There is a family lounge on the second floor as well so you are welcome to stay and watch the tryout inside. Also - ABC has a shop with all the new bats with a 10-20% discount off usual online or Dick's Sporting Goods prices. You can feel free to shop around and say hello to Frank as well!
I would like to personally apologize for the scheduling snafu, but thanks to Frank DiTondo and Dave MacKenzie for working with me so quickly in making this a reality in such short time. PYBS is committed to making things easy for everyone so I hope everyone understands that this was the best case scenario for us in such a short time frame for the turnaround.
Finally - and I cannot stress this enough - to tryout, you MUST have your child signed up for the 2018 season. Go to www.plymouthybs.org and click the registration banner and walk through the registration process.
Atlantic Baseball is located close to exit 12 in Marshfield near the intersection of Routes 53 and 139
