DODGERS ANNOUNCE NEW YOUTH DEVELOPMENT DIVISION FOR PLAYERS AGES 8-12

NEW! SEPTEMBER  2, 2015-The South Troy Dodgers are expanding.  The legendary baseball organization that has sent over 700 players onto college baseball careers and 18 players into the pros will be opening its doors to players ages 8-12 beginning this Fall.

The new South Troy Dodgers Youth Development Division will be comprised of both an internal house league as well as competitive travel teams at every age level from 8U to 12U.  While the South Troy-based organization has specialized in developing players ages 13 to 18, the Dodgers are currently in the process of taking over the land previously occupied by Spring Youth Baseball at 99 Walker Avenue in Troy.  Once that process is complete, the three-field complex will be renovated to become the home of the new South Troy Dodgers Youth Development Division. The Dodgers’ 13U through 18U teams will continue to compete and train at the program’s facility at Geer Park.  This new expansion may also include the construction of an indoor training facility on the Geer Park property for year-round use by players in the Dodger program.
“We’re very excited about this opportunity to expand the Dodger organization” said South Troy Elite Team coach Kevin Rogers “It’s an opportunity to identify the best young baseball players in the area and begin training and motivating them in the South Troy Dodger way at an early age.  We believe that this will give more kids the chance to be part of the South Troy Dodger baseball tradition and enjoy success well beyond youth baseball.”
Try-outs and sign-ups for the Dodger’s Youth Development Division will take place this Sunday, September 6th at the complex located at 99 Walker Ave, Troy, NY 12180.  The try-out and sign-up schedule is listed below.  There will be no cost associated with this Sunday’s schedule.  All players interested in playing in both the internal house league and/or the competitive travel teams should plan to attend.  The age groups listed are the players age as of April 30, 2016.
SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 6TH
