JR. DUKES DAY AT THE BEER GARDEN
Calling all Jr. Dukes, families, and coaches!
Come to Estabrook Beer Garden
On Saturday, September 21
Come meet all the Jr. Dukes and their families for some conversation and fun! Show your Duke pride with your Jr. Dukes gear or WFB gear.
Tryouts for the 2019/20 WFB Jr. Dukes Baseball Club have been completed and all of the teams have been selected and communicated to those selected. We wish to thank all of the players for giving us their very best effort at tryouts. We evaluated over 230 players at various stations: infield, outfield, pitching & hitting. In addition to the tryout scores, we considered the prior year of Jr. Dukes statistics and the prior year of WFBLL play as we selected the teams, which is a very challenging task. We are excited about the depth of talent that we have in Whitefish Bay which includes those who have and have not been selected to be on one of these teams.
I would like to encourage those kids who didn’t make a Jr. Dukes team to continue to work hard on your baseball skills over this upcoming year, and would strongly encourage kids to tryout again next year.
WFBLL provides an opportunity for your son/daughter to continue to play baseball through 7th grade Little League. wfbll.com
For those not playing Jr. Dukes, Whitecaps provides another opportunity to play travel baseball. NORTHSHOREWHITECAPS.ORG
