Tryout Dates Announced for CPBL All-Star Showcase

The CPBL All-Star Showcase has been a staple on the league calendar since the inaugural event in 2020. With another successful weekend this past September, there is plenty of excitement leading up to the event’s third installment.

There will be three tryout dates and locations for players from the 11 CPBL teams this year. The first tryout date will be located at the University of Toronto in Scarborough on May 30th and will host players from the Toronto Mets, Titans Baseball Club, Watson Elite, and Team Ontario Astros.

The second tryout will be stationed in Dorchester at the Field of Dreams on May 31st for Great Lake Canadians, Ontario Nationals, and Windsor Selects players.

The final tryout date will be at Nelson Park in Burlington on June 7th for Fieldhouse Pirates, Terriers Baseball, Ontario Blue Jays and Ontario Royals players.

Eligible players include those born in 2006, 2005, and returning 2004 players. Selected ’04 and ’05 players will participate in the All-Star Game on the 30th, while two rosters of ’06 born players will make up the CPBL Futures All-Star Game. The CPBL and Perfect Game will partner to make those selections.

Start times will be confirmed at a later date.

Each event will allow scouts and league evaluators to assess players and formulate rosters for the All-Star Showcase. Meanwhile, players who attend the tryouts will also be eligible for the inaugural CPBL All-Star Team that will partake in the prestigious Perfect Game World Wood Bat Association Championship from October 6th-10th in Jupiter, Florida.

The WWBA team’s coaching staff, led by General Manager Jamie Romak, Rich Leitch, Jimmy Richardson and Corey Eckstein, will utilize the tryouts and CPBL All-Star weekend from July 30th to August 1st to construct the roster.

The cost to attend the tryouts is $150.
