The Brevard County Adult Baseball Association held its first tryout today. Since everyone will be assigned a roster regardless of talent, it’s less of a tryout than an assessment, but in baseball parlance it was a tryout.
The BCABA is one of two adult amateur leagues in the Space Coast. The Brevard County Baseball League is run by the Brevard County Parks and Recreation. It’s been around since 1980, when it was known as the Florida Space Coast Baseball League. The BCABA is a private circuit affiliated with the National Adult Baseball Association. It formed in 2009, and is about to begin its second season.
Other than the potential scheduling conflict, there’s no reason why a person can’t play in both leagues.
Below are some photos I shot at today’s tryout, held at Cocoa Beach High School. A second tryout is scheduled for tomorrow at the same location at 9 AM, weather permitting. Even if you can’t make a tryout, you can still sign up for the league through their web site.
