Player’s Association wants to push 11/10 Fall Tryout back

by on Sep.10, 2010 @ 12:13 pm, under NPB

The NPB and the player's association met yesterday to discuss the timing of this year's Fall Tryouts.

If the Nippon Series goes the max 7 games and ends on November 7th, that would give players on the Nippon Series roster only three days to decide whether or not to stay with their current team or attend the 11/10 tryout.  The player's association feels that three days simply isn't enough time to make such a decision and is asking the NPB to push the date of the 11/10 tryout back to give the players a little more time to think.
