The York Revolution will hold its annual open tryout on Saturday, April 12, beginning at 10 a.m.

Registration will begin at 9 a.m. The cost to attend the tryout is $40 to register in advance and $50 the day of the event. Checks are made payable to the York Revolution. Players must be at least 18.

The tryout will take place on the field at Santander Stadium in York, located at 5 Brooks Robinson Way. Players must provide their own equipment, other than batting helmets, which will be provided by the Revolution.

To register, download the tryout form at YorkRevolution.com/team/tryouts and mail the form back with payment. Players are encouraged to register in advance. Day-of registration will only be allowed if spots remain.

The open tryout has yielded results for the Revolution in the past. Spot starter Shawn Hedrick pitched for the Revs in 2009 and 2010, pitcher Brian Holliday and outfielder Colin Roberson were also each offered contracts for the 2009 season after participating in the open tryout, as was catcher Salomon Manriquez in 2010.
