USF is having an open tryout?  Man, this program must've been hammered in terms of folks leaving.  It almost makes me want to reenroll and come back to use up my elgibility...

I think it is mandatory. Formality. And what does it hurt if you get one athlete out of it.

I'm tempted to try out but the furthest I went is little league, and I have no idea what position I could play maybe outfield because I got a strong arm and am fast. I doubt i'll end up doing it though, i'm sure he's got enough scholarship guys and this is probably just a formality

Don't bother.  If you only went thru to Little League, its a waste of time on your part, and the coaches part. 

By the way, I think every school offers 'Open Tryouts', so I don't think its a measure of the depth of the team.

The open tryouts started last year under the new coach.  Cardieri never had open tryouts just invited some players to tryout.

postmortem is right, they weren't in place before last year.

JoeB, let's try and stay positive instead of discouraging here. There were more than a few weak players there last year, but it was a great experience overall. How many people can say they put in the effort to try out for a Division-1 baseball team?

With regards, to the team, they are carrying a nearly 40 man roster already, so you would need to beat out quite a few people to get a look. They only keep people around after the first day that have the potential to beat out what they already have on the roster. They are carrying 19 pitchers at the moment, according to the online roster page.

They lost quite a few people from last year (yours truly, included), but I don't necessarily know if that's a detractor from what they have this year. I believe Prado, Lazer, and Bryant have their work cut out for them, but things look like they're improving on the whole.

I still keep in touch with the coaches, and I'm thinking about going out for the tryout for S&G's... sometimes you miss the field more than you thought you would...

With all due respect Wags, if one never played in HS, then I woulnd't expect them to be able to compete at this level.  Especially if you haven't played organized ball since they were 12 (no leading off, 90 ft bases, curve balls, etc) .  The odds are probably a million to one to make the squad.  But if you like those odds, don't let me stop you....

No doubt there.

With the same due respect, I never expected to even get a serious look from tryouts last year, let alone make the team.

Dream big?

Touche........but I'm guessing you played HS ball.  I remember the kids that played Little League and stopped after that.  There is a reason  they stop playing baseball.........
