Tigers to hold tryout camp March 7
The Tigers have signed talented outfielders out of their last two spring tryout camps. They’ll look for more when they hold this year’s camp on Monday, March 7 at the Tigertown minor-league complex in Lakeland.
The tryout is open for players ages 18-23, or for players with previous pro experience with a Major League organization.
Registration begins at 8 a.m., with tryouts starting an hour later. There is no preregistration or participation fee. Tryout campers must provide their own glove and workout equipment, while the Tigers provide wood bats, helmets and baseballs. There will be no changing facilities, so players must arrive ready to try out.
Outfielder Wynton Bernard, currently in Major League camp with the Tigers, is a tryout camp product, having worked out there two years ago before earning Midwest League MVP honors with Class A West Michigan. Last year’s camp produced outfielder Jiwan James, who is expected to move up to Double-A Erie this year.
