Tryouts - Baseball & Softball



2020 Fox-Rok Baseball and Softball Tryout Schedule

Boy's baseball tryouts will be held on Saturday, March 14 and Sunday, March 15.

No girls' softball tryouts this season!  Girls and all other age players will be contacted by coaches.

Tryouts Have Been Postponed!
Posted 3/12/2020

Considering the latest information and world uncertainties due to COVID-19, all baseball tryouts and practices for the 2020 baseball and softball season are suspended at this time.

The safety of the children is our main concern.  Due to the ever changing situation, we do not know when we will be able to get the season under way.  Since the Philadelphia Schools will be closed for at least the next 2 weeks, we do not foresee any tryouts/practices during this time frame.  In addition, the City of Philadelphia has announced today that they have restricted all activities for those who hold permits for all sports across the City for an undetermined amount of time.  Please continue to check back here for updates.  Our season is NOT cancelled, just delayed!  In the meantime, stay safe!

We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused you!



Be advised that age cutoff dates have been changed this upcoming season by the Leagues we participate in. 

If you desire your child to participate on a competitive travel team please plan to attend tryouts at the appropriate times and location as outlined below.

PLEASE NOTE:  Whatever age your child is on August 1, 2020 for girls, and May 1, 2020 for boys, is the age group they are trying out for. 

Our baseball and softball playing fields are located directly behind Fox Chase Elementary School, 600 block of Rhawn Street, Philadelphia, PA 19111 on the property of the Fox Chase Playground located at 7901-7935 Ridgeway Street, Philadelphia, PA 19111.

Girl's Travel Softball Tryout Schedule!
Updated March 4, 2020

There will be no evaluations or tryouts for any girls.  Teams have already been selected, but we still have some openings for some age groups.  All questions concerning softball should be addressed to Lauren Hughes, Director of Girls Softball, at 215.840.9077.  


Concerning Tryouts!

We will not be fielding a 7 year old boys travel team this year and all players in this age group will play in our in-house machine pitch league.

“Travel” baseball/softball is for those who participate in the NEAA and Philadelphia Parks and Recreation leagues.  Typically there are two (2) games per week.  One (1) game at home and the other game is played away at a neighboring location.

Tryouts are based on the player's age cutoff date (August 1, 2020 for girls and May 1, 2020 for boys) for those who wish play in the Philadelphia Parks and Recreation league.  If your child/children does not try out, or if he or she does and is not selected, they will automatically play in the NEAA or the appropriate "in-house" league based on their age.  An example of this would be an eight (8) year old doesn't make a travel team they will play in the "in-house" league.  Whatever age your child is on August 1, 2020 for girls, and May 1, 2020 for boys, that is the age they are trying out for!

We are fielding three (3) girls teams this year who will play in the Phillies RBI league. They use a January 1st as their age cutoff date.  

Copy of Birth Certificates Are Required For All Travel Baseball and Softball!  

All travel players will be required to provide a copy of their birth certificate for the purpose of issuing identification cards by the leagues.  Copies will be needed prior to the start of the season.
