The Scots Baseball Club is a volunteer not-for-profit organization committed to providing the Park Cities and surrounding area youth with a positive and rewarding baseball experience. The club has a volunteer board of directors who oversee the day to day operations of the club, including the hiring of coaches and managing the tryout process.
We are named the Scots after the mascot for Highland Park High School, and our program has the support of the community and our HP varsity baseball coach, Travis Yoder. We continue to focus on growing the sport and getting kids involved early with the hopes that one day coach Yoder will see them play in the high school program. We have access to the amazing HPISD facilities on the baseball and softball fields and operate our own indoor practice facility in the warehouse district off 35 and Inwood.
In the earlier days of our Club, our focus was solely as a “select” baseball club. Several years ago, we decided to change our mission statement to promote the Club as more of a recreational baseball community club, as we found out that there are more boys that love to play baseball over the dedicated single sport baseball boys. With this, we grew the Club from 2 teams to 15 teams over the years. While we hope to place all boys on a team to develop and play each season, we do have capacity limitations which require us to hold tryouts. Our goal is place as many boys on a team depending on room and number of coaches.
Our teams play at all levels in CFBBA (A or AA), Dallas Classic and in USSSA tournaments. We are trying to teach and grow the game of baseball, and we feel education is the most important for our young players. Our coaches are committed to putting kids in a position to learn the game and grow their passion for baseball. Their success will depend on what type of effort they invest in the game.
Our board of hard working volunteers will launch the season with team rosters, uniforms, payment, contracts, code of conduct forms, league registration, field scheduling, and more. We do ask for your patience as we work through it all. The coaches will be in charge of weekly communication to the teams regarding practice and game times.
