Johnson, Rodriguez off to Tryout Camp in Mandan

July 8, 2014

Nate Rodriguez and Jesse Johnson received invitation letters to Tuesday’s major league tryout camp at the Mandan Memorial Ballpark in South Mandan, N.D.

Rodriguez, the upcoming sophomore of this summer’s Babe Ruth team, and Johnson, the to-be Enderlin-Maple Valley junior, of Legion Post 60, didn’t see it coming.

“I had no idea it existed until I got the letter,” said Johnson, nervous and excited to partake in his first such event and to get his name out to scouts. “Maybe some scouts saw us at Babe Ruth State last year.”
