*We like our players to be good teammates.
*We like our pitchers to be strike-throwers. Command of more than one pitch is an asset. Velocity is important, but not the only criterion used in evaluation.
*We like our teams to hustle on-and-off the field.
*We like our offence to be one that can win the slugfest, or the tight one-run games. In stating this, we like some speed at the top and bottom of the lineup, with power in the middle. We also like a combination or two that we “hit and run” with.
*We like a good two-strike approach from our hitters. Nothing hurts a team’s "offense" more than a strikeout, especially a called third strike.
*Helmet tosses or use of profanity, do not win you any points regarding selection to Team Alberta.
*Versatility to play more than one position, at the national level, is an asset.
