What is the format for the Bombers Tryout/Clinic?
Do Bombers 12U teams have the opportunity to go to Cooperstown?
Yes. All of our 12U teams have Cooperstown Dreams Park Certificates.
What are the expected costs to play on a Bombers Baseball team?
Each age group is different and each team has a separate budget. We like the coaches to work with us on a budget but also want the families involved to have input too.
Are there any open spots on the teams?
After each year is over, every player has to earn a spot on the next year’s team. There are no reserved spots for anyone regardless if they were on a Bombers team the prior year or somewhere else.
The roster size for each team depends on the age group and the coach.
Will my son play if he makes a Bombers Baseball team?
Here at Bombers Baseball we strongly believe that if we select your son, it is now our coaching staffs job to help him improve and develop overtime as a ballplayer. Our roster sizes are intentional to allow for players to get adequate practice, playing and rest time. All players will receive a fair chance to compete for, and share, playing time, and should never be mistreated by a coach. While head coaches will ultimately determine the playing time for their team members, Bombers Baseball expects each team’s full roster to be used regularly. Please note: there will be times in every season (bracket play) where the lineup gets tighter and playing time may become a reward for positive performance. Coaches are expected to tell the families what their beliefs are on playing time and hitting line-ups prior to the start of the season.
If my child does NOT make a team, is it still possible to be a part of Bombers Baseball and/or Grand Slam Sports Center?
Absolutely. We hope players elect to develop with us at Bombers Baseball and Grand Slam Sports Center regardless of where they play travel ball or high school ball. Bombers Baseball offers private instruction in hitting, pitching, defense and catching throughout the year. These services are open to any interested ball player wanting to develop and take their game to the next level. Please visit www.GrandSlamSportsCenter.com for more information on our instruction and scheduling.
