The Encinitas Gamers 16U tryout has been rescheduled for Sunday, May 6, from 1 p.m.-3:30 p.m. at Westwood Club Field, 17394 West Bernardo Drive in San Diego. The Gamers team plays at the highest level of travel baseball. The team is looking for more than good baseball skills. Effort in the classroom and sound character are important.
