NEWARK – Do you think you can play pro baseball? Tomorrow could be your chance to find out as the Newark Bears host their last open tryout, beginning at 10 a.m. sharp at Bears and Eagles Riverfront Stadium in Newark.
“Finding local talent is the key,” says Newark Bears Owner/CEO/GM Danielle Dronet. “It is the greatest reward to see how an organization has the ability to develop local heroes that their community can look up to.”
“Come on in and tryout there is always a possibility of making the team,” said Newark Bears Senior Advisor Buddy Caruso.
