Severn, MD (July 8, 2012) – The Bay Area Shuckers have announced two open tryouts dates in August as they begin the process of building their roster for the upcoming 2012-2013; scheduled to tip off in October.
“We have a solid core group of players from our playoff team last season, but still have some spots to fill. We are looking forward to seeing what talent our tryouts produce this year. Last season a good percentage of our players came through these open tryouts,” noted Shuckers General Manager John Wolfe.
The first tryout will be held on Saturday, August 11th with registration/check-in starting at 4:00 PM and tryouts from 5:00 to 8:00 PM. The second tryout will be on Saturday, August 18th. Registration/check-in will start at 6:00 PM with tryouts from 6:30 PM to 9:30 PM.
Both tryouts will be held at Leadership Through Athletics, which is located at 2900 Hammonds Ferry Road, Lansdowne, MD 21227. For more information on Leadership Through Athletics please visit www.leadershipthroughathletics.org.

Four Shuckers players from last season have played or are scheduled to play overseas this year including Adrian Bowie (Germany), Earl Jackson (Peru), Zac White (Australia), and Jamarr Johnson (Indonesia).
“One of our stated goals was to give players a platform to display their talents. We received great media coverage last season and were able to provide our players a lot of exposure. We’re very happy to see some or our players move on to other opportunities,” stated Wolfe.
