Won’t be long before we hear “Play ball” followed by the crack of a baseball bat – snow has to melt first.

Perhaps it is part of an attempt to hustle up some warmer weather and if that’s 5the story – most people are grateful – we seem to have had our fill of winter.

The end to winter must be in sight – the Bandits have announced a Try Out camp.

The Burlington Bandits, members of the Intercounty Baseball League (IBL), have announced the hosting of open tryouts for their 2014 season on Sunday, March 16th from 11:30 a.m.-1:30 p.m. at The Burloak Sports Centre on 952 Century Drive, Burlington.

You have to bring your own equipment – so get down to the basement and loosen up that glove and dust off the helmet.  This might be the time to get out and buy a new pair of batting gloves.  No metal spikes.

Drills to be conducted are pitching, hitting, fielding, timed base running and position-specific drills.

Tryouts are open to all 18 and over. Cost to register is $15.00 per player and will be accepted via certified check or cash the day of the tryout. Players must be registered prior to March 15th to receive $15.00 registration cost. Day of walk up registration is $20.00.

If you’ve got questions: contact Ryan Harrison at 905-630-9036.

To register, visit  and fill out the registration form under the team drop down. Looking for other ways to connect to the Bandits? Follow us on Twitter @iblbandits, and visit our Facebook page at www.facebook.com/iblbandits.
