The nonprofit Puget Sound Senior Baseball League (PSSBL), one of the largest amateur adult baseball leagues in the U.S., will have open tryouts for all baseball players, age 19 and over, during the course of four weekends in March.
The PSSBL is comprised of 1,100 players, forming 71 teams in nine different divisions.
The divisions are organized based on age and skill level, ranging from competitive to recreational. Formed in 1989, this year marks the PSSBL’s 30th season of operation.
The 2018 tryouts are at Interlake High School in Bellevue on Sunday, March 4 and Sunday, March 11, Bellevue College on Saturday, March 17, and Russell Road Park in Kent on Saturday, March 24. There is no fee to try out for the PSSBL.
For more information including start times, tryout players and all interested parties are encouraged to view the PSSBL website at pssbl.com or call 425-644-1901.
This season marks the debut of the Rainier Division, a competitive division for players 60 years old & over. Nearly 80 players are expected to compete in this new age category in 2018.
There are a number of ex-minor leaguers and college players in the PSSBL – even a former Seattle Mariner, but there’s also plenty of room in recreational divisions for players who haven’t picked up a baseball since Little League.
The PSSBL is well known for donating money, materials, and labor to youth and school baseball organizations around the Sound as well as other charities. This season we are assisting Thomas Jefferson High School, Bellevue College, Northwest Washington Baseball League, U.S. Army 180th Cavalry Regiment, and the Wounded Warriors Project.
