Thanks again to all the guys that tried out this year. We had a great turnout of good, young ball players, and there were some tough choices to make to finalize our roster for the fall season. After much analysis and discussions, the following list represents the guys that our coaching staff feels that will give us the best chance at getting back to the World Series. No hard feelings to those that didn’t make it. Work hard over the next year and get back out to tryouts next season, and congratulations to the following new additions to a great Georgia Club Baseball team!
Practice will begin this Monday, 9/17 at Lay Field at 4:00.
The remainder of tryouts will be held at Lay Park. This field is very close to campus close to Hotel Indigo on the back side of downtown.
To get to the new field, from downtown: head down College Ave. toward MLK. Once you pass over Dougherty, Monroe St. will be about half a mile on your right, if that. The field is at the end of that street. It’s really easy to find. For you GPS guys, the address is 297 Hoyt St. Athens, GA 30601.
Tryouts will still begin at 4 each of the remaining days.
The tryouts for this upcoming season have been set for September 4th at 4p.m. They will take place at the Holland Sports complex in Athens. Please arrive a few minutes early to warm up and stretch. Tryouts will last for a couple of days so if you cannot make a certain day please let someone know. For any questions email firstname.lastname@example.org. Hope to see everyone there.
Sorry for the delay, but it took a while to reserve a room for the informational meeting. The date will be this Thursday 8/23 in Ramsey room 225 at 7:00 p.m. Please show up to get information about the team and tryouts. Tryouts are scheduled to start the following week. For any questions send an email to email@example.com. Hope to see everyone there.
