Tryout Information

The Chicago Mudcats typically hold public tryouts once a year at the end of the previous season (July - August). There are however instances when we may have spots available and will schedule private tryouts. We post both public and private tryout information on this page and our social media pages (facebook & instagram), as well on informational websites such as baseballconnected.com and infosports.com.

Tryouts are staffed by Mudcat Founder and General Manager Justin Stringer and our professional coaching team. First round tryouts are open to all registered players and occur at our indoor training facility “The Creek.” Second round/invite only tryouts typically occur at Horner Park located at 2741 W Montrose Ave, Chicago, IL 60618 (south end of the park closest to Irving Park Road). Tryouts include, but are not limited to assessment of the following:

  • 60 yard dash
  • Push-ups
  • Medicine Ball Throw
  • Throwing Velocity
  • Exit Speed
  • Position-Specific Skills
