The Youngstown State baseball program will hold an open walk-on tryout on Sept. 12 for YSU students who are interested in playing baseball for the Penguins. The tryout has been rescheduled from the original date of Sept. 6.

The tryout will start at 11 a.m. at Cene Park in Struthers, Ohio. It will consist of a 60-yard dash, evaluations of fielding and arm strength, rounds of batting practice and a scripted 12-pitch bullpen for pitchers.

Those trying out should bring their own bat and glove and wear baseball workout gear.

Those interested in trying out must be a full-time student at YSU and sign a medical release form. Players must also email assistant coach Ed Marko at eamarko@ysu.edu prior to the day of the tryout to give their name, cell phone number and position.
