LIT­TLE ROCK- Lit­tle

Rock base­ball will hold open try­outs for walk-on po­si­tions for the Tro­jan base­ball team on Fri­day, Aug. 23 at Gary Ho­gan Field. The try­out ses­sion gets un­der­way promptly at 1 p.m.

In or­der to par­tic­i­pate in the try­out, play­ers must be en­rolled full-time at UA Lit­tle Rock and bring with them proof of a cur­rent phys­i­cal as well as a hard copy of their fall 2019 class sched­ule. Par­tic­i­pants should come in proper base­ball at­tire - hat, base­ball pants, glove and cleats - and should bring their own bat­ting equip­ment. Base­balls will be pro­vided.

Lit­tle Rock is com­ing off a 29-win sea­son in 2019, notch­ing a pro­gram-record 18 con­fer­ence vic­to­ries. The Tro­jans then ad­vanced to the sec­ond round of the 2019
