SWFL Baseball Summer 2022 Tryouts

SWFL try-outs will be Saturday January 8, 2022 at Island Coast HS ~ Cape Coral, FL

Southwest Florida Baseball will be holding their try-outs for the summer on January 8 at Island Coast HS for grad year 2023-2026 (14u-17u). Southwest Florida Baseball – SWFL Baseball, is a nationally recognized and ranked travel baseball organization. SWFL Baseball incorporated in 1998 and has won numerous championships and sent hundreds of players into the college ranks. 21 former SWFL players have reached the Major League level including Michael Zunino, Scooter Gennett and most recently Shane McClanahan. The full list of Major League players can be found at www.swflbaseball.com under Pro Alumni.

The SWFL organization plays in the top tournaments around the state of Florida and travel to national tournaments during the summer. The SWFL organization does a great job of placing players in college. Recent commits from the SWFL program include Florida Gulf Coast, Alabama, Florida State, U Florida, Flagler College, Barry U, Glenville State, Maryville U and many 2-year college – JUCO programs. Fourteen 2022 graduates have secured scholarship money from colleges for the fall of 2022. SWFL Baseball will assist and promote each player that wants to play baseball in college in obtaining a college baseball opportunity.

The SWFL organization will be making a shift concerning the Nation team. Moving forward there will only be 1 SWFL Nation team in the Organization. It will be comprised of the top players in the Organization regardless of year classification. We will still have the SWFL 23’, 24’, 25’ and 26’ teams, just no Elite teams and only the top Nation team. We feel that this will increase competition and improve quality throughout the Organization. The goal is to have nationally strong teams that win tournaments during the summer and the fall at all levels. SWFL Baseball is looking to add top quality players who want to win, be recruited and be a part of a first-class organization.
