Team Info:For 2018-19 Troy Green Machine is excited to offer both a Tournament and League team. The League Team will either play 4-5 weeks of Fall Ball Scrimmages or 3 weeks of Fall Scrimmages with a tournament. We are looking to do a spring League with other teams that are available in May followed by League play in NOBF or MABF. We will participate in two to three tournaments and our players have the opportunity to play an additional tournament with our tournament team. This team will roster only 9 players and is looking for 1-2 motivated players to complete our group who have improved every year for the last three consecutive years. Our Tournament Team will play in 9-11 tournaments. This team will travel to Sports Force Park and also to Myrtle Beach next summer. The team will roster 9 players for the full year along with a couple of others who can join after June 1st. The tournament team is also currently looking for 1-2 players more to complete the group. The core of this team has competed together for years as well. Strong Arms and Pitching are always desired and previous Federation experience is required.We have partnered with Lifetime Fitness of Troy to provide 16 weeks of physical conditioning for both teams who will train together starting in October.Winter training will also start for both teams officially in January at 5 Star Training facility in Troy. We will move outdoors as soon as the weather allows and both teams are expected to train together as well as separately. In short, we are creating a very unique experience maximizing opportunity for training and play time for all of our players. Both teams are expected to compete at a very high level and opportunities for crossing over will be encouraged and offered as needed. Players need to be dedicated, attending practices and the games. Green Machine is a non-profit organization and does not believe that packing a roster of 12-15 players and then benching players is productive to the growth of any player or our team. Our focus is 100% on getting your child ready for high school baseball and not charging a small fortune to play a game where learning and growing should be the focus for 13-14 year olds. Cost for our League Team is $1300 and the Tournament Team $1800. Both our teams are led by coaches who also happen to be dads. All players on this team earn their spots in the field and the batting order and preferential treatment is not tolerated.Please visit www.troygreenmachinebaseball.com for more information. Green Machine is hoping to fill our rosters before our open tryout so please call for a 1 on 1 evaluation of your player.
