Last week, Indy Ball Island posted a Q & A with the Thoroughbred League. During the interview, Dallas Murphy (the owner/commissioner) stated that the tryout would cost $590 for each player.
Many interested players inquired about the fee, and Murphy responded with an update.
The tryout fee must be paid by each player and will cover only the tryout. They do intend to feed the players several meals during the day as well as provide Gatorade and water during the tryout camp.
However, the league announced that each guy who makes a team will be refunded this camp fee on their first payroll distribution.
Make a team (one of 150 spots), and you get your tryout money reimbursed.
Murphy has been very insistent that they are trying their best to make this league run smoothly with the players’ best interests in mind. If this all works out the way they plan, it will be a great thing for the signed players. He has also been very helpful and willing to answer any and all questions.
The league plans on making a few more announcements in the next ten to fifteen days as well.
