The Parksville Royals Baseball Club will host its annual Fall Ball in September.

It will run from Sept. 1 to Oct. 19 for all three of its teams and serve as a tryout for the 2021 season. It is open to all players from Grades 8 to 12 who live in the Royals catchment area, which includes Nanoose Bay, Oceanside, Port Alberni, Comox Valley, Campbell River and Powell River.

Players from outside the catchment area who wants to take part in Fall Ball will require a release from their local PBL franchise.

The Royals will pick players for the 2021 rosters for its senior, junior and bantam teams. Players wishing to join the Royals are expected to make every effort to attend as many evaluation sessions and games as possible.
