2022 MINOR ALL-STAR TEAM TRYOUTS

Hello Parents,


     My name is Matt Ertl and I have taken the Manager position for the 9/10 year old Dundas Minor All-Star Team. I’ve been involved with Dundas Little League in different capacities for the past 20 years.  I coached my oldest son up through Dundas Little League and more recently I coached a 9/10 year old All-Star Team in Dundas and helped coach a Hamilton Cardinals Team.  My son will be helping me with this team and will be doing a lot of the on field instruction.  After Little League he played for the Hamilton Cardinals, then the Ontario Blue Jays where he earned a baseball scholarship to a college in the U.S. as a pitcher.  He finished his career playing semi-pro baseball in the IBL, mostly in Toronto.  You may know a couple of the players in the MLB he's played with, Jordan Romano from the Toronto Blue Jays and Josh Naylor from the Cleveland Guardians.  We will offer high quality instruction and provide a fun learning experience.  We would like all players, 9 and 10 year olds, no matter what their skill level is, that are interested in learning and playing at a more competitive level to come to the tryouts. 

If you are interested please respond to this email and indicate that your child will be attending the tryouts. 
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at [email protected]

PRACTICES/EXHIBITION GAMES

To be determined - I will draw up a schedule but likely, two practices a week or a practice and an exhibition game a week, mostly on Saturdays and Sundays when it is easier to get a field.  I will probably add an extra practice the week before a tournament. When school is finished we may be able to schedule some practices during the week under the lights to free up some weekends.
