Candidates will be required to bring their own equipment, including a bat, mitt, helmet, cleats, sliding pad, and batting gloves. Potential drills to be conducted are hitting, fielding, timed base running and position-specific drills.

Fans may watch the players try out for a spot on the team for free, and the Bandits will hold a meet-and-greet event with fans later that day at the ballpark.

The tryout registration form is available at chicagobandits.com.

Last season the Bandits selected four players through open tryouts, including NPF veteran Amanda Williams and current Bandits infielder Danielle Zymkowitz.

Opening Day is scheduled for Thursday, June 7, when the Bandits host the USSSA Pride at The Ballpark at Rosemont.
