The Humboldt Eagles will hold tryouts for the summer American Legion baseball season later this month, the team announced this week.

The tryouts will be for three different teams, the 19U, 17U and 16U, and will be held at Redwood Fields in Cutten on May 23.

Tryout times are 9:30 a.m. for the 19U and 17U players, and 12:30 p.m. for the 16U.

Head coach Jeff Mielke will move up from the 17U to coach the 19U team this summer after Matt Tomlin announced recently that he has stepped down.

Pat Spellmeyer takes over as head coach of the 17U team.

Each of the three Eagles teams are expected to play at least 30 games in June and July.
