Revolution open tryout set for Friday, April 5
While we can’t guarantee coming to the York Revolution open tryout will result in you making the Major Leagues followed by a movie made about it featuring Dennis Quaid, we can guarantee it will be fun.
This spring, the open tryout will be held in the evening under the lights for the first time. And yes, the Revolution have had players participate in regular season games after attending the tryout, and others who were with the club in pre-season camp.
