The 12u ('00 and '01) and 10u ('02 and '03) Knoxville Explosion Fast Pitch Softball Teams will have our annual open tryouts on Saturday, August 4 and Sunday, August 5 at Fountain City Baseball Park. The times and locations for the teams are as follows:
- 12u ('00 and '01) Explosion - Saturday, August 4 at 9 am at Fountain City Field #4
- 10u ('02 and '03) Explosion - Sunday, August 5 at 2 pm at Fountain City Field #4
There will be NO CHARGE for the tryouts. All teams have many open positions to fill. We are looking to add pitchers, catchers, outfielders, infielders and straight up ball players! The 12u Explosion will need at least 8 players and the 10u Explosion Teams ('02 and '03) will need 10-12 players. Why so many? Because we are growing!!! We have a total of 6 teams this year and continue to experience explosive growth. Our tryouts will be high school level with timed baserunning, machine hitting, infield, outfield and a full pitcher and catcher evaluation.
The physical address of the park is: 3701 Ludo Road, Fountain City (Knoxville)
