Open tryout camp in Jupiter
Aspiring baseball players will have a chance to catch the attention of the Marlins.
The organization is having its annual Open Tryout Camp on Wednesday for amateur players ages 16-24, and released players with prior professional experience. The one-day camp will take place at the Roger Dean Stadium complex in Jupiter, Fla. It starts at 9 a.m. sharp, and is designed to give players a shot at playing pro ball.
Players currently participating in a college baseball program are not eligible for the open tryout.
Those wishing to attend should arrive at the complex dressed in appropriate workout gear because there will be no locker room availability. And players are to bring their own gear — spikes, gloves, bats and helmets. Catchers are to bring their own gear as well.
There are no fees to attend the tryout, which will conclude in the afternoon.
