Preparation for Evaluation Day:
Evaluation Day is just that, it's a day for
evaluation. To help keep teams in balance, all players are evaluated by local
high school baseball players. Players are given the opportunity to hit, throw,

use in the draft. If a player does not show up for evaluation day, they will receive
the maximum amount of points that can be calculated.

they could play. Last on the list is the cup. Parents, please have your baseball
player get used to this essential piece of protective equipment.
