Diamonds Hold 2012 Tryouts at Wildwood

Posted: September 12, 2011

About the Sheboygan Diamonds:
This is a baseball program sponsored by Sheboygan Diamonds Youth Baseball in conjunction with the Sheboygan A’s. The purpose is to develop and maintain a baseball program and league environment that will encourage a highly competitive level of baseball play. This program will concentrate on skill and youth development of its participants with a goal of preparing the youth of this community for high school level baseball.

Outdoor practices begin in April of 2012 with scheduled games running from mid-May to the end of July. Half of the games will be home in Sheboygan and the other half will be away games. Parent-provided transportation is required for away games (Waukesha, Brookfield, West Bend, New Berlin, Port Washington, Menomonee Falls, etc.), but car pooling is provided and organized by Diamonds coaching staffs to ease concerns about travel to away games.

Some of the distinct advantages to being in the Diamonds Youth Baseball Program are:

  • Games are played in the Wisconsin State Youth Baseball League – the level of competition in this league is one of the highest in the state.
  • Some league games may be played at Helfaer Field, the Milwaukee Brewers Little League complex right outside Miller Park.
  • 13 and 14 year old teams have the opportunity to play some home games at the Sheboygan A’s Wildwood Park.
  • Optional indoor hitting, pitching, and fielding workouts in the winter.
  • Night at the A’s: Diamonds players take fielding practice with the A’s and are introduced with the starting lineups.
  • Player give away items may be provided and vary by season. Past items included bat bags, jackets, t-shirts, wind shirt pullovers, and team plaque with team photo.
  • Individual and team photo packages are also available for purchase at uniform distribution time in the Spring.
  • Teams are normally entered in a minimum of 2 tournaments in which awards are available.
  • Free admission to Sheboygan A’s games at Wildwood Park for players and families
  • Coaches and parents work together to find the best tournaments to compete in.
  • Complete uniform provided for each player. (Cap, T-Shirt, Jersey, Pants, Belt, and Socks)

Cost: There is a $225 player fee for all age brackets. A $100 payment is due in late October or early November at the Parents Meeting, with the remaining balance of $125 due in Spring 2012 when uniforms are distributed. Fees are non-refundable. If payments are not received by the deadlines, player/parents will be notified and given one week to make payment or player will be replaced on the roster. Financial assistance is available through the Sheboygan A’s if needed.

If you have any questions, please call the Diamonds Hotline (467-0252) and leave a message. Your call will be returned as soon as possible.
