2016 Fall-Format

Major Announcement  for the Fall:

MAPirates208box 6 -One day (Sundays) events on college campuses: NO FEE Tryouts..click here, fill out form, and we will contact you The Mid Atlantic Pirates have designed a schedule for players interested in playing baseball at the college level. This format designed to give players experience and exposure to the college environment and college coaches. Besides the host school 2 other colleges will be on site at each event.

6 Sundays -6 College Fields -18 college Coaches

Reasons for doing this:
  • Sunday games allow more players to participate without conflicts
  • Sundays in the fall are the day most colleges give their teams off, so there is better field and Coach availability. (with that said , there maybe Sat events if field and coach availability dictate, however, all efforts are aimed at making this a Sunday event schedule)
  • Create a mix of Coaches from Div 1, Div 2, Div 3, and Junior College to blend with all skill levels and academic aspirations represented on our player roster.
  • insures exposure to College recruiters
  • insures play on college field
  • insure innings are played (no ridiculous game time limits).
  • reduces hotel, food, and gas expenses tremendously.
  • allow players to get the benefit of the experience of the MId Atlantric Pirastes staff in mentoring and preparing players for opportunities to play baseball at the college level.
  • no time limit games with players getting limited at bats and innings on the mound
  • gives Coaches control of game and ability adjust to showcase players.

Each team (17u-Anderson and 16u-McKinney) will consist of :

  • (24 total players at each age group) 4- catchers, 6- 1B/3B, 6 -MIF, 8-outfielders
  • up top 12 pitcher only (who pitch 2 inn-10 hitters)
  • these players will be split up equally at each event into two teams.  One team in the first base dugout, and one team in the third base dugout.
  • Each weekend the composition of the teams will vary.
Format-  Players play in one of the two games according to age. Game 1-8:30am to 12noon  (ex: 16u game) Game 2-12:30pm to 4pm  (ex: 17u game)
  • Limited roster spots 12 man batting order.
  • Batter get min 5 game at bats.
  • each player plays in a extended and modified, 12 to 14 inn game.
  • Each inning consist of 5 batters batting, primary pitchers face 10 hitters (secondary pitchers will face 5 hitters).
  • After 3 hitters , if no one reaches base, a runner in placed on 1st to encourage double plays.  Runners must steal within first 4 pitches.  Catchers show off throwing skills, and position players turn more double plays
  • Defensively players alternate in the field, never out more than one inning in a row.
