Academy Fall 12U Club Softball Team

Greetings Academy Members and Friends,

The MLB Urban Youth Academy is excited to announce that we will be forming a 12U club softball team this fall. The team will participate in four tournaments throughout the fall season. The team will be led by the Academy softball staff which consists of former softball players who poses Women’s College World Series experience. We are searching for top athletes with high skill levels. We prefer that players are 12 years old but will take some advanced 11 year olds.

If your child or someone you know might be interested in trying out for the team, please contact our Coordinator of Softball Instruction, Marisa Trevino at (714) 883-1109 or Marisa.Trevino@mlb.com. The deadline to contact Marisa is Thursday, September 4, 2014.
