Grand Junction Rockies tryouts set for Saturday, June 14th

GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. Athletes that already hold a roster spot with the Grand Junction Rockies are starting to pour into town, but this weekend presents a chance for the coaching staff to see what talent may have been overlooked.

The annual GJ Rockies tryouts go through all the basics from BP to the 60-yard dash to timed base running and much more. And in a matter of just four hours, an opportunity of a lifetime could be presented.

"Major League teams, especially the Rockies, are always looking to get better, just like any organization," said assistant general manager Mike Ruvolo. "They're always looking to get better, and if anybody can make them they're willing to accept that and sign them on."

You must be 18-27 years old in order to tryout. It takes place this Saturday, June 14th from 8:00 AM to 12:00 PM. The cost is $70, and you must register at the Grand Junction Rockies front office during regular business hours.
