Starting on October 24th, the Florida Burn will be holding a series of tryouts for pitchers and catchers interested in joining our organization for the 2021 summer season. These tryouts will take place in various locations with the first two weekend workouts to be held in Fort Myers at the City of Palms Stadium on October 24 and 31, from 10 AM until 12 PM.
The Florida Burn would like to give any pitcher the opportunity to perform his tryout while he is closer to mid-season form. This early workout opportunity would take the place of our typical January date where all pitchers are just ramping up for their high school season. If you are currently in strong throwing shape and feel this opportunity would showcase your skills better than a January workout feel free to attend. All you have to do is fill out a player form on our tryout page and show up on the 24th or 31st at the City of Palms Stadium.
These early tryouts for pitchers and catchers are FREE. There is no cost to attend. Catchers will be evaluated for Burn summer teams as well. Pitchers and catchers will be offered 2021 summer team roster spots based on these tryouts by November 5th. Pitchers and catchers will still have the ability to earn a roster spot at our January tryout dates. You have nothing to lose except the opportunity to gain a spot while in mid-season form.
Other early tryout dates will be announced in different locations. The Florida Burn will hold its main tryouts in Sarasota County and Clearwater on January 9-10 and January 16-17. CLICK HERE to get to the registration page. All attendees must register to participate.
