It is a regular feature on the calendar of European Baseball each year. MLB International is holding tryouts for the MLB European Academy in Tirrenia, Italy. Thanks to a post on the website of the Swedish Baseball and Softball Federation we have received knowledge of this year’s dates. Haarlem (NED), Bologna (ITA), Barcelona (ESP), Mainz (GER) and Prague (CZE) will host tryouts between May 1 and 8. Afterwards about 50 to 60 players between 15 and 19 years old will be selected and invited to the MLB European Academy, which will be held between July 31 and August 16 in Tirrenia. Interested players need to register for the tryouts throughout their national federation.
