The Parkland Pokers are holding tryouts for a brand new team for the 8U Division, coached by former baseball player Nate Ramos.
Ramos played eight seasons with the New York Mets in the minor leagues. He played in the winter baseball of Venezuela with the Tigres de Aragua and the Leones del Caracas and was champion in the winter baseball of the 2015 – 2016 season with the Tigres de Aragua.
Now training his brother, Wilson Ramos, former catcher of the New York Mets, he now trains others in Boca Raton.
Tryouts are open to committed seven and eight-year-old boys and girls interested in the sport. Players must have been born between May 1, 2013, and April 30, 2014.
According to team manager Craig Anderson, they are searching for enthusiastic kids with a passion for baseball. Experience is a plus but is not necessary.
“They just need to have a desire to travel and grow the love of the game,” said Anderson.
Scheduled for July 27, July 30, and August 1, from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at Pine Trails Park, Field B, Anderson said players should make an effort to attend all three days.
