Gabriel Proctor gives it his all while batting during tryouts for the Cal Ripken majors. Tryouts were held at the Valley Event Center April 3.

More than two dozen energetic boys and girls showed up at the Valley Event Center on April 3 to try out for a spot on one of the six "majors" teams.

This season, a sixth team was added due to increased interest, which spurred a re-draft of all the teams.

According to Linda Hudyma, the league chooses to re-draft when a new team is formed in an effort to equalize the competition.

To try out, the potential sluggers were observed batting, throwing, catching and fielding, among other things by league coaches.
