All-star game tryouts set for Monday

August 19, 1993

Tryouts for the 14th annual Anne Arundel County Sun-Oriolelanders All-Star Baseball Game are set for 9 a.m. Monday at Joe Cannon Stadium in Harmans with a rain date of Tuesday, Aug. 24.

All Anne Arundel County residents ages 15 to 21 are eligible to try out for the Suns, who will play the Oriolelanders in a doubleheader on Sunday, Sept. 5 at Cannon Stadium.

The Oriolelanders is a fall team of top high school prospects from the mid-Atlantic area selected after tryouts under the direction of Baltimore Orioles scouting supervisor Jim Gilbert and his son, Tom. Nearly every player on last fall's Oriolelanders' team either was drafted by a pro club in June or received a college scholarship.

Six members of the Oriolelanders were named to The Baltimore Sun's 1993 All-Metro baseball team, including Player of the Year Tim Giles of state 4A champion Arundel High, with a seventh named second team, and three more were named first-team All-Metro by The Washington Post.

Since the game began in 1980, more than 100 players who appeared in it have been drafted or signed by pro baseball clubs. In addition, scores of players who appeared in one of the games received college scholarships.

Players who attend a community college such as Anne Arundel and those who reside in Anne Arundel County are eligible to try out Monday if they fall within the 15-21 age bracket.

Four-year university players are not eligible to participate under NCAA rules.

Any player unable to make Monday's tryout should call (410) 647-2499 by Sunday evening.
