Is your son a great athlete? Does he play multiple travel sports? Does your Google Calendar have 4 tournaments on it in a 3 week span in 2 different sports? Have you found playing on other COYBL teams in the past that your son has been penalized for playing soccer, lacrosse, ice hockey or other sports that interfere with baseball? Then the Hilliard Hornets are for you. 

We embrace the multiple sports that our kids play and allow them to flourish in all sports with their busy schedules. We allow them to play baseball in penalty and consequence free environments while at the same time keeping them playing high levels of baseball and other sports as well.

This is a unique experience and opportunity - I am aware of no other teams in the Columbus area running a program like this. I've successfully run this team for the past 4 years and we are entering into year 5 with this unique approach. 

We are currently looking for 2-3 more players to join the great athletes we have for our 2016 baseball season that fit this mold and are tired of dealing with the hassles other COYBL clubs & teams may give you for missing a game here or a practice there due to vacations, other sports, school activities, etc. 

If you have an interest in joining the Hilliard Hornets, please send an email Please include the player's name, age, birthdate, prior baseball teams he has played on, positions played, other travel sports they excel in, current school, hometown and required contact information. 

You do not have to live in Hilliard to play on this team. Residents of Dublin, Hilliard, Grove City, the West side are preferred, but we are open to kids from any Columbus suburb. Please contact me for more information related to tryouts for next season, etc.

Are you a top level athlete looking to compete at the highest level of competition? Tired of promises of workout facilities and player development programs? If so, time to become a student of the game and join the Midwest Marlins. The Marlins have grown rapidly over the last five years with our 15u to 18u teams being invited and playing in the nation’s top tournaments (PG25, Super NIT, and elite level showcases on college campuses). Many of our current players in all age divisions have earned distinct honors in making All OH Mizuno Team, USSSA Regional Teams, USA Baseball, and PG MVP teams.  Our teams at 15u and higher are coached by high school coaches, retired pros, and DI college athletes.  The 14U will focus on honing their skills and evolving as students of the game to be ready to be mentored by Marlins organization Head Coach Ryan Weaver when they transition to 15U.

The Midwest Marlins 14u are looking for a 1-2 elite level athletes with pitching experience to round out our fall and spring teams. Private tryouts may be scheduled with the Marlins coaching staff by contacting Scott King @ 614-625-6436.

Pitching experience is at a premium. The Marlins will play a very competitive tournament schedule (USSSA Super/Dual NIT’s, Global Qualifiers, and PG25) beginning in September 2015, and continuing through July 2016. The Marlins will play their home games at Hamilton Twp. Freshman field, and a few in Pickerington. In-season games will be played on Saturday and/or Sunday, with very few games during the week. Weekdays will be used for practice, hitting and bullpen work. The Marlins encourage multi-sport athletes to attend tryouts.

The Marlins will train 2-3 days a week throughout the winter in our indoor training facility ~ The Tank. Our players will train with former College and Professional Players/Coaches, as well as current and former Marlins players. Our facility includes a full infield/outfield, 5 batting cages, Iron Mike, multiple pitching tunnels, and weight room. In addition to Baseball Specific Training, our players will go through winter Core Strength Training, Speed and Agility, Zepp Swing Analysis, and Jaeger-Band arm strengthening programs (programs that conform to age and maturity level) – all instructed by YMCA Certified Personal Trainers and founder /18u Head Coach/YMCA Cross-Fit Trainer Ryan Weaver.

Feel free to contact Scott King with any and all questions regarding tryouts and/or The Midwest Marlins Organization @ (614) 625-6436, or via email at The Marlins will play COYBL in 2016. Check us out at for updates on college recruiting and overall program development.

The Marlins fight to give kids the opportunity to experience the game of baseball and learn valuable lessons that can be applied throughout life with combination of intense training and work ethic, creating baseball players with a continued growth plan to play at the next level. We look for dedicated baseball players with a high level of work ethic and extreme passion to play at the next level. However, while the Marlins can provide opportunity, the player must be willing to take advantage of the opportunity and make the most out of the experience. Thus, the question must be asked of every ball player by their team, and must be asked of every ball player by one's self: "Are you willing?” Are you willing...
