The United League will kick off its season at the end of the month, however there is still time to find a spot on a roster.
There will be a league wide tryout this weekend on Saturday May 11 and Sunday May 12. It will take place at La Grave Field in Ft. Worth, Texas, home of the Ft. Worth Cats.
All league managers will be present with roster sports available for all teams. This is a great way to get exposure and find a spot on one of the teams final roster.
Included in the managers will be the Ft. Worth Cats Jim Essian, a former manager in the Chicago Cubs organization. Ozzie Canseco will also be in attendance as the manager of the Edinburg Roadrunners, and Chris Paterson, who was named to our Top 10 Independent League Managers in 2012, will manage the Rio Grande Valley White Wings.
The registration fee is $150 per player. Registration will start at 8am with the tryouts getting going at 9am.
The 2013 United League season will start May 23rd as Ft. Worth, Rio Grande Valley, and the newest team Alexandria will host their season opener.
