Tryouts

Tryouts are scheduled for Saturday, March 12th at the Windsor Locks Middel School Gym at the times below:

Softball 9:00 - 10:00 am - Majors (see ages below)

Baseball 10-12 years old 10:00 - 12:00  

Baseball 8-9 years old 12:00 - 1:00 

We would like to start the tryouts promptly, so please be at the gym 15 minutes prior to the scheduled start time.

Players are required to wear sneakers, appropriate athletic clothing and to bring a glove.  Helmets, bats and balls will be provided.  If a player has their own helmet or bat, they can use them.

Each player will have a chance to run, field ground balls, field fly balls, throw and bat during the tryouts. 

Baseball and softball tryouts vary slightly.  AAA and majors managers will be present at the baseball tryouts and there is a draft a few days later to make the teams.  Since there is only one majors team for softball, there is a panel of coaches, managers and administrators who assess skill levels in order to determine who will be on the team.

Please encourage your child to relax and have fun.  We are all looking forward to the season.

Ages for player eligibility below: 

  • All boys ages 8-12 should attend the tryouts at the times above
  • Girls born 2003 through 2006 must attend the tryout. 

If a player was on a majors team last spring season, they do not have to tryout. 

We ask that parents wait outside the gym during tryouts. 

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact any one of the board members.

In Memory

 It is with deep sadness that the Board of Directors was notified of the loss of one of our beloved 1965 Windsor Locks Little League Champions.  Over the weekend Fran Aniello, Jr. passed away at his home unexpectedly. 

 Fran was the starting center fielder for the WL 1965 Little League World Championship Team, batting third, and amassing a team-leading 13 hits in all-star competition.  Fran was a tri-sport varsity starter in soccer, basketball and baseball. 

 Fran went on to play basketball for four years at Springfield College until he graduated in 1974.  Following college, he landed a teaching job at Suffield High School, a longtime rival of Windsor Locks.  While at Suffield, Fran coached boys’ and girls’ soccer for several years and the golf team for 20 years.  Without a doubt, coaching basketball was Fran’s forte.  For 28 years, Fran put his keen basketball mind to the test.  He retired from Suffield as the all-time winning basketball coach, posting 365 victories, 16 league or league playoff titles, and two Class S State Championships.  At one point, his basketball teams won 33 games in a row!

 In 2002, Fran was named Connecticut High School Coach of the year.  In 2014, Fran was inducted into both the Windsor Locks and Suffield Athletic Hall of Fame and being named to receive an honorary life-time membership to the Connecticut High School Coaches Association.  In 2005, Fran retired from a 33 year teaching career, the last nine years of which he served as the school’s Athletic Director.  Fran has been married to his wife, Deb, for 39 years.  He has two children, Kelly and Dan, and one grandchild, Jackson.

 Our deepest sympathies goes out to Deb, Kelly and Dan along with their families.
