All players wanting to tryout must have a completed physical packet turned into the SGP training staff before January 27th. The trainers will issue you a red slip that you must turn in to the baseball coaches at registration. No red slip, no tryout. Download the packet below.
Our tryout process will mirror that of a typical MLB tryout where will be able to evaluate all players speed, arm strength, fielding ability, ability to hit, and ability to hit for power.
