There will be an informational meeting regarding baseball and softball on Thursday, July 17 at Lincoln Magnet School from 6:00-6:30 p.m. Physicals will be collected at this meeting and at tryouts. Tryouts are open to LMS & Ball Charter incoming 6th, 7th, and 8th grade students.

There will be a baseball open gym on Wednesday, July 30 at the Southeast High School JV field from 5:30-6:30 p.m. This is not a tryout but an opportunity for those students interested in trying out for baseball to come out to hit and throw.

Softball Tryouts will be held on July 28 & 29 at the Southeast High School diamond from 5:30-7:00 p.m. Baseball Tryouts will be held on August 4 & 5 at the Southeast High School JV diamond from 5:30-7:30p.m. Times are subject to change. Players need to bring a glove and plenty of water. Players may also bring their own equipment such as bats and catching gear (all bats used during the season must have a BBCOR label and meet IESA legal bat standards). Players are expected to attend both tryouts. Players that make the team will be required to have a physical on file prior to the first official practice. Please contact Mr. Hampsey via email (champsey@ sps186.org) if you have questions. Also, please continue to check the LMS website for tryout updates and possible weather related cancelations.
