The Pacific Association of Professional Baseball Clubs’ open tryout in Sonoma — originally scheduled for March 1 — has been postponed to Saturday, March 15, due to a heavy forecast of rain expected in the Bay Area.
The March 15 tryout begins at 8 a.m. at Peterson Field, located at 175 First Street West, in Sonoma. Sonoma Stompers manager Casey Dill, and San Rafael Pacifics manager Dan DiPace, will conduct the tryout. Representatives from the other Pacific Association teams will be in attendance.
Pre-registration cost is $100 and day-of is $150. All players are welcome, however it is recommended that those players wishing to tryout have exhausted amateur eligibility and have previous pro or college experience. Registrations for the original March 1 date will be honored.
To register, or to find out more, please contact Tristan Barbieri in the Pacifics front office at 415.485.1563. Pre-registration will end on Friday, March 14, at 4 p.m.
