Marlins Spring Traing Tryout Camp set for February 20

The Miami Marlins will be holding their annual Open Tryout Camp on Monday, February 20, 2012 at their Spring Training facility in Jupiter, FL.  The one day camp is for amateur players 16 - 24 years old (and not currently participating in a College Baseball program) and released players with prior professional experience.  High School players must have written permission from their school Principal to attend. Registration begins at 8:00 AM.  The tryout will begin at 9:00 A.M. sharp.  Players arriving after 9:00 AM will not be allowed to participate in the tryout.

Players should come dressed in appropriate workout gear as locker room facilities will not be available.  Players are to bring their own gear (spikes, gloves, bats, etc.).  Catchers are encouraged to bring their own gear if they have it.  This will be a one day camp only and should conclude by early afternoon.  Any travel expenses incurred will be the responsibility of the individual player.  There are no fees to attend this tryout.

The Marlins Jupiter Complex is located just south of the city of Jupiter.  Take I-95 to the Donald Ross Road exit.  Travel east approximately ¼ mile through the first light (Heights Blvd).  Make a left at the next light on to Parkside Dr. (Abacoa development entrance) and continue straight ahead through the first two stop signs (golf course & townhouses on your left, Wackenhut office building and parking garage on your right).  Parking is available in the large grassy lot that borders the main road and the Marlins minor league fields.   Workout is on field #4 next to the road and next to the outdoor batting cages.  All participants must enter and register at the gated entrance between fields 4 & 5 that are adjacent to the road that borders the baseball complex.
