Tryouts for pitchers and catchers are from 9:30 to 10:30 a.m., and all other positions try out from 10:30 a.m. to noon.

The Trouble Gold plays ASA Gold-level tournaments and showcases in Irvine, Huntington Beach, Las Vegas, Reno, Sunnyvale, Lake Tahoe, Roseville and Stockton, with the goal of giving players as much exposure to college coaches as possible.
