Detroit Tigers add Tryout Camp

by on March 3, 2010   2 Comments

It’s a big of a short notice, but the Detroit Tigers have scheduled a tryout camp on March 8th at their Tigertown complex in Lakeland, Florida.  Registration starts at 8 a.m., but is free of charge, with the tryout beginning at 9 a.m.  The Tigers encourage ex-professional and college players from the ages of 18-23 to attend.  A couple of other tryouts have been added to the Events in the premium content section of the site, which can be accessed for just $9.99/year – namely with the Golden League, Northern League, and Continental Leagues – all of which are independent professional leagues.

  2. Even at 23 years old you are old by minor league standards. It isn’t about your ability to compete at the rookie ball level, it is always about your projectability at the big league level. As soon as they don’t see you going beyond double-A, they release you. And if you aren’t in at least high-A by 23, you’re well behind the ball.
