Busy days for Magnolia Little League
Baseball Skills Evaluations on February 4 were a success. There was a large turnout supporting the return of baseball and softball to Smith Cove Park on February 8. We are excited for Softball Skills Evaluations on this Saturday, February 11! All this and we are still about 1 month away from playing ball!
Softball Skills Evaluation
DATE: Saturday February 11th
TIME: 9am-12PM (See schedule below by Age Group)
PLACE: City Baseball Indoor Facility- 2901 West Commodore Way
Magnolia Little League will be holding a skills assessment for all 78ers and above (78ers, 89ers, Minors, Majors and Juniors). The purpose of the skills assessment is to assess whether players are registered in the appropriate division for their skill level, and to evenly distribute playing ability across all teams within a division.
Who must attend? ALL PLAYERS planning on playing Magnolia Little League softball this season in the 78ers and older divisions.
What time to attend?
9am-10am: League Ages 10+ (birth year 2002-2006); Minors, Majors and Juniors
10am-11am: League Ages 8-9 (birth year 2007-2008); note that 8 year olds who are registered as “89er” players should attend this session.
11am-12pm: League Ages <8 (birth year 2008-2011); note that 8 year olds who are registered as “78er” players should attend this session.
Please arrive 10 minutes before your evaluation time in order to check in and to do some stretching.
What will happen during the assessment?
After checking in, players will move through a series of skill stations appropriate to their age level. Coaches will be observing each skill taking notes. Our goal is to make it a positive experience and all the coaches understand it’s pre-season.
What to bring?
This is an indoor facility with no heat so please dress appropriately. Players only need to bring their glove, helmet if they have one and water bottle. Bats and helmets will be provided, but players may choose to bring their own helmet and bat in a sports bag or pack.
Coaches should bring a clipboard and pen to take notes. We will provide evaluation sheets with the players names.
Please contact Becky Shields firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
City Baseball Mid-Winter Break Camp, February 21-23
City Baseball is offering a three-day all skills camp for players aged 6 – 13. The camps will focus on a broad range of skills to include infield, outfield, hitting and pitching.
Smith Cove Park Meeting
The Magnolia Community Center was packed on Wednesday night to learn about the redevelopment of Smith Cove Park. Exciting for Magnolia Little League is a baseball diamond being included into the design. The site had 2 diamonds when the Navy owned the site. While the design is not complete and there will be a long way to go, it is encouraging to see MLL’s partnership with Seattle Parks improving. Thanks for your support!

Baseball Skills Evaluations Follow Up
Last Saturday, February 4 saw nearly 140 ball players field, throw and hit for Managers and Coaches. Little League forms teams by draft at the Majors and AAA levels. When those drafts are complete, we will be able to start finalizing teams at the younger levels. We expect this to be nearly complete by the end of February. Just in time to play ball!
