The highly successful McPherson Baseball Association, which has proven to be a tremendous feeder program for McPherson High and American Legion Post 24, has scheduled tryouts for Aug. 29-30 at Rolf Park.

This is for the 2016 summer season.

Here is the tryout schedule:

• Aug. 29 •

11-and-under — 8 to 10 a.m.

10-and-under — 10 a.m. to noon

9-and-under — Noon to 2:00

8-and-under — 2:00 to 4:00

• Aug. 30 •

12-and-under — 1:00 to 3:00

13-14 and under — 3:00 to 5:00.

The MBA gives an opportunity to McPherson area youth to play competitive baseball, to learn the fundamentals of the game and to improve individual skills. The goal of the association is to develop the individual’s talents to be able to eventually compete on the high school and college level.

Each age division has to have a coach in order to compete. If a coach does not step forward, that age division will not have a team. The head coach’s son will make the team he is coaching, but will be required to try out. All other players will be selected from tryouts.
