Last year, fellow blogger Kyle (also known as deadshot) tried out for the Detroit Tigers in an open tryout down in Lakeland , Florida. He did not make it but he had a great story to tell. His tale attracted a good deal of attention from some major sports blogs including the Sports Illustrated site. He's trying out again this year and will write about his experience again but this time he is doing it for a cause.
Kyle has been working with the homeless in Lakeland over the past year and has decided to use the tryout to raise money for the Talbot House, a homeless shelter in that city. To read more about what he's doing and how you can help, please checkout his web site www.tryoutforacause.com.
