So, you think you have what it takes to play for the Bacon? Well, now is your chance to prove it. The Macon Bacon are holding open try outs on Saturday, July 25th to give the people of Middle Georgia a chance for glory on the diamond.
“Since the Bacon came to town, we have received numerous calls and messages about people wanting to tryout for the team.” Said Team President Brandon Raphael, “Before, we had to turn them away. But now, this is their chance to prove they can be a top-notch Bacon player.”
The team are looking for people from all walks off life. Former major league players, current minor league players, former college baseball players, old high school all-stars who are looking for glory again, men and women adult softball superstars, the guy who blew out his knee and would have went pro if it wasn’t for that, etc. If you can pick up a bat and throw a ball, we want to see what you got.
“We really want to give everyone a chance to prove they can play ball at this level.” Said Raphael, “But, we are also looking for players who can have some fun and put on a show for our fans.”
The tryout will be Saturday, July 25th from 10am to 1pm. It will be a pro-style tryout which will consist of taking batting practice, fielding, and other standard baseball drills.
The following day (Sunday, July 26th), a select group of players will be asked to come back for a second work out.
Players must provide their own equipment. Wood bats will be provided by the team.
