The McPherson Baseball Association (MBA) will be conducting 2015 spring/summer tryouts later this month at Wall Park.

The MBA gives McPherson and area youth the opportunity to play competitive baseball, learn the fundamentals of the game and to improve individual skills.

Tryouts will be Aug. 23 and 24. Each age group will take part in one two-hour session. Age is determined by how old they are on May 1, 2014.

• Aug. 23 •

8-and-under — 9 to 11 a.m.

9-and-under — 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.

10-and-under, — 1 to 3 p.m.

• Aug. 24 •

11-12 — 1 to 3 p.m.

13-14 — 3 to 5 p.m.

Teams will consist of 10-12 players. Each player that makes a team will pay id="mce_marker"50, which goes for tournament and league costs. Families with more than one child will be prorated (id="mce_marker"25 for second child, id="mce_marker"00 for third child, $75 for fourth child).

Each age division must have a coach 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, but will still be required to try out. All other players will be selected from tryouts.
