I spent a couple of hours on Saturday and then again on Monday watching the Jesuit Varsity Baseball tryouts. Both days were essentially intersquad scrimmages.
There are 16 juniors and 12 seniors trying out for the team. There are 8 returning seniors; one of the seniors from last year is out with shoulder surgery. Four of the seniors trying out didn't make the team last year. There are 15 juniors from last year's JV team, plus one junior who was hurt last year, but played as a freshman.
Their first scrimmage will be at Bella Vista on Saturday. Last year, they announced the team on Saturday night after the first scrimmage. There were 21 players on last year's roster.
