Gators Andrews 13U Tryout - June 28th, Plummer Park (for 2022/23 Season)



Does your son play multiple sports, but still want to play baseball at the highest level possible?  Gators – Andrews is looking for players who fit that profile for the 2022 & 2023 Baseball Season and will host a tryout at Plummer Park on June 28th, 2021 at 8p.m. 


The plan for our team next year is to play in the Top 13U SWIBL Division along with 6-7 competitive tournaments, then fill out the rest of the schedule with practice sessions and practice games to work on development.  Our Fall baseball schedule will consist of weekly practice sessions, practice games and 1-2 tournaments to work on skill development before we head into the winter.  Our Fall schedule will be kept light to allow for kids to play other sports.  As part of the program we will have Agility training two days a week and an Indoor practice 1 day a week starting in November through February with some of the very best coaches in the area providing the kids another voice to learn from.  Starting in March/April we will play lots of baseball via tournaments and league play but will cut back on activities by July 31st to allow kids to play other sports and for families to have the option to vacation before school.  We will participate in the SWIBL league and play 4-5 local tournaments.  We will also play one “out of town” tournament that will require travel as I am looking to take the team to Omaha during the College World Series next year during the back half of June. 


We have a very knowledgeable coaching staff with lots of experience that has been a part of some very successful teams in the past.  Environment will be high energy and exciting!


Please call/text John Andrews if interested in trying out on the 28th or in setting up a time for a private tryout!



SWIBL, as a league, is unaware of teams who have openings on their rosters.  Each year, teams may (or may not) hold tryouts for any openings they may have.  This page shows all known tryouts/openings that are available (or planned) for potential players to tryout out for.

NOTE:  Each coach/team is in complete control of their roster. SWIBL does NOT require them to host tryouts or make available open positions to the general public.
