Do I need to know German?

No. We have a diverse group of people together both in the men's baseball and the women's Softball teams. Our coaches speak German, English, Spanish and Italian. Although the majority of our players speak German, we will always find a way to communicate and integrate you into the practices and the team.

When should I come to try out?

We do not really hold tryouts. What you should do is find out which of our teams you would like to join and then show up at practice. You can find our practice times by following this link. Before showing up, please send us a quick e-mail!
