Frequently Asked Questions
Q: How can I join the Northeastern Club Baseball team?
A: Our team holds tryouts twice a year. These usually happen in September and January. We encourage anyone who is interested to try out. Every year our roster situation is different so we always take a different number of players. To get information about tryouts, visit our booth at one of the club fairs or reach out via email and we will add you to our email list of those interested where we will send out updates when we have them.
Q: How competitive is the league?
A: We would compare the competition level to that of a division 3 college. All of our players played at the varsity level in high school and some could have played at the varsity level in college, but chose a different path. Club baseball is a great way to still play competitive baseball without the huge time commitment that comes with playing regular college baseball.
Q: What if I don’t make the team?
A: Depending on the year our tryouts can be very competitive. In the chance that you do not make the team we strongly encourage you to try out again at our next tryouts. We have several players on our current roster who were not taken right away, but have now grown to be a crucial part of our team, so please don’t be discouraged.
Q: How often are practices/games?
A: The club baseball team operates in both the fall and spring seasons. We tend to practice 2-3 times per week for about an hour and a half. Games are held on weekends where we typically play a double header on Saturday followed by a 9-inning game on Sunday. We don’t have games every weekend, but they are often enough where we expect players to be able to commit to multiple weekends full of baseball. In addition to our normal games we also attend the NCBA Swing into Spring Showcase, where those who are available travel down to Florida to play games in preparation for the spring season.
Q: What is the team atmosphere like?
A: We pride ourselves in being a top competitor in our conference every year. We take winning seriously and we play to win. With that being said we like to have fun too. There is always a time and place to joke around, even at practice. We also know that our team comes secondary to our players’ education and we are flexible if players need to miss practice to catch up on work. Our team is made up of students from all types of majors and backgrounds. We have many different interests and every player brings something unique to our team. We all have one thing in common, and that is the love for baseball.
