This fall, the Sioux Falls Post 15 Baseball Program will be conducting tryouts for players interested in participating for a Sioux Falls Post 15 Advanced Team in 2019. Tryouts will be conducted by SF Post 15 coaches and SEBA staff for eligible athletes interested in playing on a Post 15 team. If you cannot attend, it is imperative that you contact the SEBA office @ 336-3462. Post 15 Senior Legion players who are currently participating in a college baseball program are still eligible to participate for a Senior Legion team if D.O.B. is after January 1, 2000, the cutoff date for senior legion eligibility in 2019. Players who wish to participate for a Jr. Legion or 16U team must have a birthdate of January 1, 2002 or after. Tryouts each Sunday will be split into two groups: East side participants and West side participants.
Tryout dates are as follows:
Team: Senior Legion, Jr. Legion & 16U Teams (Ages 15-19)
When: Sunday, August 26th
Location: Harmodon Park Upper Level
Times: Post 15 West Team Tryout 10:00- 2:00 pm / Post 15 East Team Tryout 3:30-7:30 pm

13U only Tryout Games will be on 9/19 for 5:30-8:00pm (This is to give our staff an opportunity to see the players in a game setting)
PROGRAM OVERVIEW: Sioux Falls Post 15 baseball is highly competitive and requires athletes who are serious about developing their baseball skills and playing a high caliber of baseball. Depending on the team and age level, teams will play an extensive schedule that includes anywhere from 45-60 games from the end of May through the first week of August. This schedule will include both weekday games and weekend tournaments that take place in Sioux Falls and the surrounding area. Teams primarily compete against the other SD Class A opponents in the state, but will also compete against other legion affiliated teams from surrounding states as well. Each age level has an end of the summer state tournament championship. In addition to the SD State Legion Tournament, Legion Baseball offers the potential opportunity for an American Legion National Championship.
* If there are enough talented players who do not make an East or West team, we will attempt to form an additional team of a 13/14 combined group.
* If after rosters are set, a player later decides not to participate, SEBA reserves the right, if it deems necessary, to hold an additional tryout open to others to fill that roster spot.
