Softball tryouts are Sept. 8 in Oswego

The Pride Travel softball program will have a tryout/commitment day from 3 to 5 p.m. Sept. 8 at the Oswego High School varsity softball field for any girl interested in playing next summer.

In case of rain, the session will be held at the YMCA Armory on West First Street.

The session will consist of skill work and a scrimmage conducted by Ron Ahart and Mike McCrobie. All coaches will be on hand to evaluate players for the 2014 season.

In 2014, Pride will attempt to field three teams based on the amount of interest: 12-under (players born after 1/1/01); 14-under (players born after 1/1/99); and 16-under (players born after 1/1/97).

Pride is in its 18th year of competing in the Amateur Softball Association’s Junior Olympic softball program.

Pride has won numerous tournaments throughout Central New York, as well as two New York State Class B 16U championships.

“We’d like any girl who is passionate about softball to come on out to find out what Pride Travel softball is all about,” stated Pride organizer Mike McCrobie. “It’s important for coaches to establish a roster this fall and get a commitment for next summer, so we’re hoping for a big turnout.”

Players from throughout Central New York are welcome, as Pride softball is not limited to Oswego County participants.
