UOG to hold baseball tryouts and community baseball clinic


The University of Guam’s varsity baseball program, under its new head coach, Roke Alcantara Jr., is looking for athletes to play for the Tritons in the upcoming spring and fall seasons.

Current UOG students as well as prospective and incoming UOG students for both the Fañomnåkan/Spring 2022 and Fanuchånan/Fall 2022 semesters are invited to try out for the team this weekend. Tryouts will be held from 9 a.m. to noon this Saturday and Sunday at the George Washington High School baseball field in Mangilao. All athletes will need to show proof of vaccination.

Additionally, all aspiring collegiate baseball players ages 16 to 22 are invited to a free community-wide baseball clinic over the holiday break. The baseball clinic will run from 9 a.m. to noon on both Saturday, Dec. 18, and Sunday, Dec. 19, and from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. each day from Monday, Dec. 20, to Thursday, Dec. 23. Participants must show proof of vaccination.

“We’re looking for athletes of all skill levels who have a passion for the sport and want to be part of a team and part of a new chapter in Triton Athletics history,” Alcantara said. “Let’s come together and bring back the excitement of watching UOG baseball like the good old days.”

The Tritons Baseball team plans to play in the Guam Major League this spring. It will be the university’s first baseball season in more than 20 years.
