04/27/2007 3:33 PM - KANSAS CITY, Kan. The T-Bones will host tryouts for the 2007 squad this weekend, April 28 and 29, at CommunityAmerica Ballpark. Registration begins at 8:00 a.m. with the tryout beginning on the field at 9:00 a.m. Saturday morning. Registration is $60 per player. However that fee will be waived for the first 10 women who register.
Anyone who is planning on attending the tryout should come prepared wearing the proper gear for the T-Bones natural grass playing surface. T-Bones manager Andy McCauley said though the roster is nearing completion for spring training he is looking to sign some players out of the tryout.
There are still a couple of roster spots open, said McCauley. Its a good opportunity for a player or two to show what they can do. The tryouts are also a chance for us to take note of a couple of local players who might be able to help us later in the season.
Any player signed out of the tryout will be invited to spring training and is not guaranteed a spot on the Opening Day roster.
The Kansas City T-Bones begin their 2007 campaign at home on May 17 at 7:05 p.m. versus the Schaumburg Flyers.
