The Mexican League has recently changed their roster rules towards foreign players. Teams are allowed an unlimited number of Mexican-American players because they now count as local nationality. In addition, they have now doubled the amount of non-Mexican players (foreigners) allowed on a roster.
Due to these changes, Mexican Leagues are looking for more talent in the United States.
The Snyder Elite Baseball Academy will be holding two Mexican League showcases this year. The showcases will be attended by Mexican League scouts and team personnel that will be ready to sign players for the upcoming season this winter.
There will be a one day tryout in Riverside, CA at La Sierra University on August 26th at 10 AM, and one in Phoenix, AZ on September 1st at 10 AM. Players are able to pick one or both days to showcase their talent. There will also be an additional day on September 2nd in Yuma, AZ that will be used if scouts and coaches want to call back players and see more from certain players before deciding to offer them a contract.
Early online registration is open now and is $60 until August 24th. After the 24th, registration goes up to $90 that must be paid at the location before your tryout.
Players must be 18 and older. Remember, this is a professional tryout. Players must be physically and mentally prepared to workout and compete for a contract in front of Mexican League scouts.

In addition to the showcases, there will also be an exhibition game for players picked from those showcases (plus an additional fee of $250) to play against Los Mochis Caneros from the Triple AAA Liga Mexicana del Pacifico in October.
Mexican league and affiliated scouts will be on hand at the exhibition game as well.
