Every year Little League International requires local leagues to conduct evaluation or tryout session to determine what division each player should play for the season. Although the term "tryout" is widely used, the "tryouts" allows the Board and coaching staff to accurately assess players skills-set and core competencies of the game in order to place them in the appropriate divisions. Players are placed in divisions where their skill sets are best suited for training and development of the coaching staff and players.

The tryout sessions will be held at Pittsburg City Park on the Little League fields on the corner of Civic Ave and Davi Ave. Parking is very limited on Davi Ave, however additional parking is available on Civic Ave.

Please DO NOT park in the apartment complex parking lot across the street. Individuals parking there will be sited and towed at the owners expense.
