"A lot of jobs will be available coming out of this historic camp, making it the best opportunity of its kind for players to advance their careers."
The four-day camp will feature pro-style skills sessions for all position players, a bullpen day for pitchers, and an extended intrasquad game with live pitching. The PBL scouting bureau, PBL club representatives, and MLB scouts will be present to evaluate prospects.
"We've conducted a lot of tryout camps in the past, but this one is totally unique because we're able to sign so many more players to professional contracts," said Andrew Dunn, Commissioner of the 14 team Pecos League in which the Tucson Saguaros play. "If you've gone undrafted or were drafted and released, this camp will offer you a huge opportunity to get signed and move on to the next level of your career."
