Travel Ball Tryouts

Hickory Hornet Black teams - The Hickory Hornet Black teams are "club level" teams without the club level costs. They play in the Chesapeake Regional Amateur Baseball League(CRAB), the most competitive invitational league in the state that includes club teams from MD, DE and PA. In addition, these teams play a tournament heavy schedule throughout the Mid-Atlantic region. This is a high level of commitment and dedication for the player and parents. These teams also participate in weekly Ripken qualifying league games during the spring season to be able to attend the Cal Ripken tournament trail that begins in July. The Black teams usually practice twice a week and extend their season well into July and sometimes August.
