A kid by the name of Nate Novak who played in my league last year will be trying out for the Minnesota Twins on Saturday. He also recently received an offer to skip school at my alma mater (U.Albany) and sign a minor league deal with the Boston Red Sox - he turned it down to go to school.
He also recently worked out for the Red Sox, Phillies, Yankees and Brewers.
Just a sampling of the type of talent you can face on the field if you play ball. Leagues will be starting practices soon so if you ever thought about playing, now's a good time to start looking.
