Skeeters to Host Player Tryouts on April 14
SUGAR LAND, TX - The Sugar Land Skeeters will hold a player tryout beginning at 10 a.m. on Sunday, April 14, at Constellation Field. The announcement was made by Skeeters manager Pete Incaviglia and general manager Tyler Stamm.
The caliber of play in the Atlantic League of Professional Baseball is regarded as one of the highest in all of minor league baseball. That is evidenced by the recently announced three-year exclusive partnership with Major League Baseball to experiment rules and equipment in exchange for TrackMan technology in all eight Atlantic League ballparks. The Atlantic League has sent over 900 players to MLB organizations and the Skeeters alone had 14 contracts purchased by outside professional baseball organizations in 2018.
The Skeeters encourage current and former players alike to register for the tryout, which will be attended by Incaviglia and Skeeters infielder and hitting coach Josh Prince. All registrations should be completed and returned to the Skeeters by Friday, April 12, as the tryout will be capped at 100 participants.
Players interested in registering for the tryout can visit sugarlandskeeters.com/tryouts and complete the registration form. Registration is $100 per player. For more information, visit the Skeeters official website (sugarlandskeeters.com) or email email@example.com.
"Any time you can get a group of eager players together with the same goal in mind, it's an exciting thing," Incaviglia said. "We're a league of opportunity and we're looking forward to being able to provide opportunities for players at this tryout."
The Skeeters, winners of the 2018 Atlantic League Championship, open the 2019 season on April 25 at Constellation Field against the Southern Maryland Blue Crabs. Season tickets and mini plans for the 2019 season are currently available and individual tickets will soon be made available.
