EXCEPTIONS TO QUALIFICATIONS LISTED ABOVE:
Each of the qualifications criteria above for each of the teams is listed in the order of priority by which each of those team rosters will be filled. It is possible that a roster could be filled by players within the first couple of qualifications criteria for each team, thus not leaving roster spots for players further down on the priority list for each team. In that event, those players would be offered a roster spot on the next team.
Players placed by Division 1 and Division 2 coaches will be accorded roster priority.
Players with a strong recommendation from an MLB Scout and/or their current coach may be considered for a level higher than where the qualifications above place them.
Performance during the Tryout Intersquads may be considered for placement on a level higher than where the qualifications above place them.
Performance early during the summer season may result in roster movement, either a level up or down accordingly.
The player/team qualifications above are guidelines. The General Manager and coaching staff reserve the right to make the final decision regarding roster assignments based on the roster/position needs of each team and skill level of the player(s) in question.
