A Chance for Dreams to Become Reality, Saints To Hold Open Tryout May 4

ST. PAUL, MN April 14, 2017

The St. Paul Saints have given first chances to undrafted college players.  They’ve given second chances to players in affiliated organizations looking to get back and reach their dream of the Major Leagues.  And each year the Saints give an opportunity to those who may have gone unnoticed by everyone with their open tryout.

 

          On Thursday, May 4 the Saints will hold their annual open tryout at CHS Field, 360 Broadway St in Saint Paul.  It’s a free tryout and registration begins at 9:00 a.m. at the front gate of the ballpark located on Broadway St.  The tryout begins at 10:00 a.m.  Each person showing up should come baseball ready in baseball attire, cleats, bring their own glove, and a wood bat for position players.  All participants can showcase their talents at only one position.

 

Infielders will go through various defensive drills and show off their arms across the diamond. Outfielders will show their range and showcase their arm as well.  All position players will have a chance to take a few swings.

 

          Pitchers will throw bullpen sessions while catchers will get behind the dish and show their ability to block balls and throw out baserunners.

 

          If the tryout is rained out it will be rescheduled for the next day, on Friday, May 6 at 10:00 a.m.

 

          The Saints can carry a maximum of 28 players into spring training, and the roster maximum this season is 23 players.

 

          For more information about the tryout contact the Saints at 651-644-6659 or visit saintsbaseball.com.

 

          The Saints 2017 season begins on May 18 with a 7:05 p.m. game against the Gary SouthShore Railcats.
