Tryout Info. 2021-2022


Our first ever Missouri Bulls Softball Tryout

Missouri Bulls 12u Softball

A group of Cape Girardeau area softball players and coaches have been planning to create a new team softball experience in our area.  If you are looking for a softball team that plans to focus on teaching and development while having fun and seeking a challenge, then this team might be right for you!  We hope you'll join us for the tryout.  If you plan to attend, please register online through the link below so that we know to expect your athlete there.

More information will be given that day, but here are a few things you'll want to know:

-The team plans to train pre-season for 8 weeks between Feb.-April at Balls N Strikes training facility as well as practicing weekly outdoor during the season.

-The team plans to play in 3-4 tournaments in the spring and play in the local travel softball league in Cape Girardeau.

The price will depend on the number of tournaments decided upon, but $600 per player is an approximate number for everything winter through summer- including uniforms, training, league, practices, tournaments, etc. There will be fundraising opportunities to help cover most if not all of the cost. We just like to be upfront with information.

Missouri Bulls Baseball 2023 Tryouts

2022-2023 Tryouts- PLEASE READ

Our goal is to be transparent about the game plan as our Missouri Bulls Organization continues to grow.  Please read this over before registering your athlete for our tryouts.  Our organization is currently made up of 15 teams, ages 8u-18u.  Some of our established teams have a majority of players returning for the 2022-2023 season.  Those teams are seeking the position players needed to complete their team for 2023. We intend to build additional teams this upcoming season as well, working toward an A, AA, AAA team in each age group.  This will enable the appropriate level of play for each developing Bulls athlete and team.  If you have questions about this before tryouts, please contact Todd Pennington, Missouri Bulls Director, at 618-306-2265.

18u experience for 2023

From Todd-

My goal for our 2023 18u Bulls is to create a unique experience for our 2023 SENIORS.  I would like to propose the following schedule, and we will discuss this further in person.

-Fall baseball (optional)

-Late fall agility training

-Winter team training (Jan./Feb.)

-5 summer tournaments (half season- mid June-mid July)

My hope is to prepare you for your senior season and college prep, while also freeing up some time to spend with family and friends, senior trips and graduation celebrations. This has been a win-win for our senior families this season, but each year we will continue to discuss and good balance for our 18u players and families. The price for the 18u team in this format was $1,500 in 2022 rather than $2,500 due to a shortened tournament schedule.
