Monday, July 28, 2014

The brand new Hustle Baseball program’s second round of tryouts has been changed to 9 from Aug. 30 following a “great turnout” for this past weekend’s first tryouts at Ooltewah High School for the group’s 2015 summer teams.

Players in the 11-13 age group will work out from noon to 2 p.m. and 14-16 from 2 to 4 p.m.

Hustle Baseball also plans to field fall teams for 11-12 and 13-14 players.

This program will be led by Ooltewah coach Brian Hitchcox and his new assistant Wes Caldwell, who have a combined 40-plus years of baseball experience at the professional, collegiate and high school levels.

Anyone in the Ooltewah area seriously interested in becoming a better baseball player is encouraged to attend.
