All players can warm-up beyond the outfield fence at Richardson Field (please bring your own ball to warm-up).  We highly encourage you to warm-up your player prior to the evaluations as there is nothing worse than trying to make a throw from Shortstop to First Base with a cold arm.  As a reminder, parents are not allowed on the playing field at any time during evaluations.  

Richardson Field - 17000 Rambla De Las Flores, Rancho Santa Fe, CA 92067

Player evaluations, or try-outs, are held every year to evaluate and assess the player’s current baseball skills. Evaluations are done by the division managers. Players will be evaluated in four activities: Hitting, Fielding, Outfield, Pitching/Throwing. Each division will be divided into  equal groups and will spend about 15 minutes at each station and will rotate through each activity over the hour.

Who has to attend Evaluations?
All players except those in tee ball.

Where are Evaluations?
Evaluations are held at Richardson Field, unless otherwise noted.

What happens at Evaluations?
Players will be rated on the following skills: fielding fly balls, fielding ground balls, throwing (from outfield and infield positions), batting, and running.

How long do Evaluations last?
It will vary depending on the number of players, but each age group usually takes about 60-90 minutes. Evaluations are scheduled throughout the day in various groups, please check the schedule on our website for the appropriate time for your player(s).

What do I need to bring?
A baseball glove/mitt, cap and cleats. Your player may also bring his own batting helmet and/or bat. Please make sure all of your player’s gear has a name and phone number on it and that it is kept together, preferably in a player bag. Also, please bring water and food, as needed.

If my player has a bad Evaluation, will he get "cut" or dropped?
No. All players that attend Evaluations will be placed onto an RSFLL team.

If all players get on a team, then why does my player need to be evaluated?
So that your player can be placed into a division that is appropriate for their skill and so that teams can be constructed of equal talent. Little League International requires Leagues to evaluate and assess a player’s skills. The Evaluation is the most effective way to do this.

If it rains before the Evaluations, will the event still be held?
Yes, but only if the fields are safe. If a rainout is called, it will be posted on the website, and reschedule information will be posted as soon as possible. Please check our website if you are unsure on the day of the Evaluations.
