Pitchers- Throw Bullpen, may consist of live game situations (control, velocity, and command graded)
**Bring any equipment (gloves, baseball attire, catcher’s gear, etc)**
“I always look forward to seeing the players that might have gotten overlooked,” Calfapietra said. “I know there is a tremendous talent pool in the Midwest, and I can't wait to tap into it.”
In 2016, pitcher Travis Garcia signed out of the open tryout, joining other former T-Bones, including Beau Stoker, Kyle Dahman and Drew Graham, who were signed following the tryout.
“Our local tryout is a great opportunity for players to showcase their skills and make an impression in front of our baseball staff. I look forward to seeing the talent assembled this spring,” said T-Bones vice-president and general manager Chris Browne.
In case of rain or inclement weather, tryouts may be moved indoors on 5/3 or rescheduled for Saturday, May 4, 2019. Check www.tbonesbaseball.com, Kansas City T-Bones Facebook page, and @tbonesbaseball on Twitter for updates.
