Illinois Stampede to hold tryouts in Sept.

Baseball players up to age 17 from Will, Grundy and Livingston counties are being sought for a second-year travel team for the 2014 season.

Players can play on the team if their birthday is before May 1, 2014.

The team will play a competitive schedule of 20-24 games from May 31 through July 21, including four or five college exposure tournaments in the Chicago area.

Tryouts will be Sept. 14 and Sept. 15 from 2 to 4 p.m. at the Dwight Township baseball field. Interested players only need to attend one tryout and are asked to arrive 15-20 minutes early to sign up.

Players are also expected to bring their own equipment to the tryout.
