2024 Traveling Baseball Rosters Announced

The 2024 Irondale Baseball League Traveling baseball rosters have been announced. 

The 2024 Irondale Baseball League Traveling teams have been formed based on the results from Traveling tryouts held on September 17 at Irondale High School. 


NOTE:  Due to the numbers at some age groups IBL reserved the right to combine age groups in order to form teams. Players were not selected for a team more than 1 age group up from their level.

Tryout Player Evaluations:
Every player’s baseball skills were evaluated by a team of impartial evaluators provided by the Baseball Board. The evaluators were people known to possess the knowledge necessary to evaluate a player's skill at a particular level. Evaluators were not related to any of the tryout participants involved in their assigned age level. The evaluation scores were the primary basis used to select the players for each traveling team. Tryout sessions were organized and facilitated by a board member, but board members did not participate in the actual player evaluation scoring process.

Players Transferred to Instructional Baseball:
Players who are not listed will be placed on an Instructional team once Instructional League rosters are formed in April. There will be no further fees for the players placed at the Instructional level.

15U Players please note:  The formation of 15U teams will be dependent on what the high school does for summer baseball. With the potential of some 15U players playing leagues other than IBL; 15U teams rosters will not be set until after high school summer teams are formed in the spring. Once 15U teams are set you will be invoiced the 2024 traveling cost of $450. This fee must be paid in full prior to the start of the season to claim your roster spot.

For questions about the traveling baseball tryout and selection process, please email IBL:
