Approximately 30 interested high school and college men attended each of the first two tryouts held in March. At last week’s event, more than 60 men attended the tryouts at the Missions Baseball Academy. Coach Freddy Rodriguez said, “I am extremely happy with the turnout. There were 64 players who attended, about 40 were from the local area, and 20-plus were from out of town. This proves that there is a huge interest in bringing intercollegiate baseball to the West Side of San Antonio. There is definitely a lot of talent out there, and it’s exciting to see so many young men who are eager and enthusiastic to join our family at OLLU.” Read full article online.
