5/8/2014 - Angelina College Baseball, New York Mets Holding Tryout Camps

Angelina College Roadrunner baseball coaches will host a series of tryout camps this summer, with the third one scheduled in tandem with Major League Baseball’s New York Mets.

The Roadrunners will hold tryouts beginning at 9 a.m. on Saturday, May 31 and again on Tuesday, June 17 at Roadrunner Complex on the AC campus. This camp is open to all high school graduates, underclassmen or anyone with college eligibility with an interest in playing baseball for Angelina College. It is not an instructional camp and is for evaluation only. Players will be graded on hitting, fielding, throwing and running 60s. Pitchers will throw bullpen sessions for evaluation purposes.

On Tuesday, July 1, the Mets, along with the Roadrunner staff, will host a tryout camp at Roadrunner Field. Both organizations will evaluate players for their respective teams. That tryout will also start at 9 a.m.

There is no registration fee required. Coaches ask that players arrive at least 30 minutes prior to the workouts.
