Despite overcast weather conditions, baseballs were flying around Russell Carr Field July 6 as about 100 of the best high school baseball players from the Los Angeles County and San Fernando Valley regions took part in an exclusive tryout. Nearly 90 major league scouts and college coaches evaluated the prospects during the first day of Area Code Tryouts, which are free and open to public viewing.

In the morning, players went through a typical pro-style workout, including timed running, infield and outfield evaluations and batting practice. In the afternoon, the top players were invited to a simulated game to face some of the nation’s best pitching.

Tryouts for players from Orange County, Riverside, the Inland Empire and San Diego regions will be held Wednesday, July 7, beginning at 9 a.m. The final tryout, which will feature the best of the players from the initial rounds, will be Thursday, July 15, at Carr Field.
