Tournament 12 (T12) Tryouts were held across Canada this year from May through July. These tryout camps helped determine the players that will be selected to represent their Province/Region at T12. T12 will take place in Toronto from September 14-17, with all games at Rogers Centre. For more information on the 2017 edition of Tournament 12, click here.
Information on 2018 T12 Tryouts will be available in early 2018.
Who is eligible?
Amateur baseball players who are between the ages of 14-19 (as of September 1, 2017) can register to participate in the T12 Tryout Camp. If a player is selected to participate in T12, the player will be assigned to the team representing the Province/Region where they were born.
What is involved?
Position players will be evaluated based on Speed (60-Yard Sprint), Throwing, Defense and Hitting. Pitchers will be evaluated by throwing in the bullpen. Each evaluation session will run approximately four hours.
Why should I attend?
T12 Tryout Camp is your best option to be considered for a roster spot at T12. Although the Blue Jays Baseball Academy has made a conscience effort to attend many showcase events across Canada, we cannot accurately evaluate all interested players. The T12 Tryout Camp is your chance to make sure you are evaluated by Toronto Blue Jays personnel. In addition, the Blue Jays Baseball Academy will be reaching out to other MLB teams along with college recruiters to come and scout these events.
Who will be evaluating the players?
Players will be evaluated by the Toronto Blue Jays Baseball Academy and the Toronto Blue Jays Scouting Department. All final roster decisions will be determined by the Toronto Blue Jays Baseball Academy.
Should Bantam age players attend?
Yes, T12 is focussed on getting the best player regardless of age. Younger players attending a T12 Tryout Camp can begin to position themselves for consideration in future tournaments. It is a great experience for players to be evaluated in this type of setting/environment.
What is the cost?
Players must register individually for this event. Online registration is now open and the fee for a T12 Tryout Camp is $110 per participant plus applicable taxes. Note that Toronto T12 Tryouts are $140 plus taxes.
What is the refund policy?
A full refund, less a $10 administration fee, will be granted if registration is cancelled at least 48 hours prior to clinic date. Any cancellations within 48 hours of the clinic will not receive a refund.
When are the T12 Rosters Selected?
August 1: First 10 roster spots are determined for each team.
August 12: Final 12 roster spots are determined for each team.
In Toronto, how many sessions do you I need to attend?
To accommodate all players, there will be six tryouts in Toronto. Players only need to register for one and will be asked to indicate their desired session during registration. There is a maximum of 100 spots in each session and are filled on a first-come, first-serve basis.
