Are you looking for indy ball play?

Yes, most likely for Independent league (although I'm not sure how likely). I'm just more realistic about that than showing up at an open tryout for the Chicago Cubs or something like that.
How would I get a chance to tryout for an independent team with out being seen initially in a game by a scout?

OK, Here's a list of things you can do for different leagues:
Atlantic: Too late to tryout
Northern: Too late
Can-AM: Too late
UBL: See three above
Frontier: Happened in early may
Golden: I suggest you contact GBLCommish, who posts on here
New York: The New York State League of Professional Baseball will be conducting its first annual open tryout camp at Murnane Field in Utica on June 27 at 7 a.m. Players signed out of the camp will be assigned to the rosters of the league’s four teams— the Utica Brewmasters, the Rome Coppers, the Oneida Barge Bucs and the Herkimer Trailblazers.
In order to participate in the camp, players must generally have had no professional baseball experience and have played college baseball within the last two years. All players must preregister at firstname.lastname@example.org with their name, address, phone number, date of birth and college affiliation. If you do not pre-register the League cannot guarantee you will be able to participate in the tryout. There is no cost for the tryout.
The tryout will be conducted by Nick Belmonte, the League’s Director of Player Personnel and the League’s managers including former Major League All Star Dave Cash

Thank you so much for your time- two more questions if I could...
1. Does the Northern league hold the same opportunities for NEXT year as the New York one does? Actually all my inquiries are for next year as I assumed I was too late.
Does the Northern League have open tryout in March or April 2008? I couldn't find the info on their website.
2. Will I be denied an opportunity to tryout if I do not have college ball experience? Is that considered a waste of their time?

I believe the NL usually has open tryouts they just haven't been announced yet.
I don't think you would be denied a chance at a spot, as a lot of players drafted by MLB don't play college, nor do a a lot of other pros.
I would try emailing the league or individual teams about further questions, or email email@example.com(He knows a lot about the league)
