Developing Baseball Players for High School and College
The Blaze is a Glenview-based program, but we also welcome players from other communities. The 2015 tryouts for the Glenview Blaze will be the week of August 18th, 2014 (see below for details) and will be held at Community Park West (1000 Zenith Drive, Glenview, IL 60026). All players should plan on attending both of the days for their age group, although the Blaze will determine if the second tryout day is necessary after the first round. Depending upon the number of players that are trying out at each level, the Blaze may or may not have a first round of cuts after the first tryout date. This will be announced to the players at the conclusion of each first tryout day.
Arrive 30 minutes prior to the tryout with your registration form completed; make sure all areas are legible! Include all phone numbers to contact parents (home and cell phone). The registration form can be obtained by clicking on the Registration Form below these directions. Then go to your downloads and click to open and then print the document. Guardian and Medical Release forms also are found below.
There is a $20 fee to tryout for the Blaze. All players will receive a t-shirt at tryouts with a number on the back to wear both days during tryouts.
Tryout times will be as follows:
First Session: Tuesday (8/19) from 4:00PM - 6:30PM
Second Session (if necessary): Saturday (8/23) from 10:00AM - Noon

The mission of the Glenview Blaze Travel Organization shall be to promote, organize and conduct a full time Travel Baseball program for the highly skilled players who are interested in a more intense and competitive baseball environment.
The Glenview Blaze Baseball Program will also provide the focus and positive pursuit for our youth where both discipline and good sportsmanship are expected and rigidly enforced. It is our hope that these principles will continue to remain with each player throughout their life both on and off the baseball field.
