2015 Fall Club Team Tryouts


WBA is looking for skilled 5th through 8th graders who are committed to playing baseball at a high level!

This is a preliminary tryout for our 2015 Fall Club 13U-14U Teams (for 7th and 8th graders). We will follow up with an invite only to a second tryout, which will be August 8th, for selected players based on the preliminary tryouts. The Fall Club season will primarily run from September through Mid-November.

We are actively seeking all position players with an emphasis to develop shortstops, catchers, pitchers, centerfielders, and switch hitters. We want serious baseball players who:

  • Are top tier caliber players from their former teams.
  • Hustle.
  • Have a good attitude.
  • Are driven and self motivated to work on their game outside of practice.
  • Want to learn, and are students of the game.
  • Have aspirations of playing college and/or pro baseball.

Many of our players play other sports, which we encourage.

I just wanted to let you know that I hit great in my tournament. I had a lot of fun and didn't think about a single thing. Thanks for making the game fun for me again. I'm looking forward to improving even more. I'll see you soon!

The first thing you said to Jordan was "How are your grades?" Tells me you are more than just about baseball. I don't know what you said to him about being tired, but yesterday was his best attitude I have seen.

I just wanted to thank you for helping my swing. 2 days ago I had my last regular season game. I used the pitch-hit method and I went 3-3 with a double and a RBI...thank you for fixing my swing mechanics, but not only that. You tried to find new approaches to my mental side.

I wanted to thank you for the few months I trained with you before my sophomore baseball season started. I have worked with many hitting coaches and what you taught me in a short time was amazing. I am really comfortable at the plate and have more power, balance and consistent contact with the ball than I ever had. I led the team in RBIs, HITS, DOUBLES, SLUGGING, OBP and HOME RUNS.

Thank you so much for everything you have done for me. You taught me much more than just how to catch. You taught me to catch correctly and how to overcome certain situations on and off the field.

My 8 year old has been working with Coach Walbeck for several months; the results have been phenomenal! His hitting, fielding and throwing now seem so natural and effortless. He has improved more since we started than in the years before, which is a testament to Matt, whose knowledge is vast and his attitude and enthusiasm is infectious.

I just wanted to share with you that after we got home last night Miles plopped down on the couch and said, "I love my new swing!" He was so pumped saying how effortless it felt and how much fun he had. He was just so happy, and today after school he couldn't wait to get into the cage and practice his new stuff.
