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.

Jupiter or Wrigley?

Welcome to the friendly confines of … Roger Dean Stadium?

Sunday was a day of extremes at the Marlins-Cardinals game. The temperature was a sunny and steamy 83 degress when the first pitch was thrown. By the time the game ended — a wild 14-10 affair — the conditions dipped to 67 degrees, and winds swirled at 19 mph.

The balls were flying all over the place. In all, the te

Both teams combined for 33 hits — 20 by St. Louis. Brian Barton of the Cards had two homers and drove in six.

Jeremy Hermida of Florida homered and hit a double.

The game experience reminded of Wrigley Field.

“Windy and tough today,” manager Fredi Gonzalez said. “I don’t want to use the conditions at all, for anything. You still have got to throw strikes. We didn’t do that at the tail end of the game.”
