The Davis Baseball Academy will conduct player assessments/tryouts for its U13/14 squad on Saturday, Jan. 25, from 10 a.m. to noon at the Davis High School varsity field. Players who are 13 years old as of April 30, 2014 — or younger — are eligible for the tryout, which will determine the level of competition at which that athlete should compete. As of Aug. 31, the team will compete at the 14-year-old level. Players will be evaluated by a group that includes coach Kevin Keefer as well as other college and high school coaches and pro players and scouts. If there are enough players, two teams will be assembled. Tryouts for younger teams — players ages 10 through 12 — will come next month and will be posted at www.davisbaseballacademy.com. For more information, contact Keefer at 916-717-1914 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
