Fulfill A Dream: Saints Open Tryouts Set For May 5 At CHS FieldST. PAUL, MN March 31, 2016
As young kids in the backyard playing catch we all had the same dream: playing professional baseball one day. The St. Paul Saints give those that still have that dream an opportunity to attain it with an open tryout at CHS Field.
On Thursday, May 5 the Saints will hold their annual open tryout at CHS Field, 360 Broadway St in Saint Paul. It’s free to 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.
