Norse Baseball and Softball to Host Audition Day

ESCANABA, MI – Bay College Athletics, Head Softball Coach Heidi Charon, and Head Baseball Coach Mike Pankow have announced that they will be conducting the first ever Bay College Baseball/Softball Audition Day to be held on March 3, 2018 at the Hannahville Turf Complex.

The Audition Day will be in a showcase style format.  Athletes that have any interest in attending Bay College and possibly playing baseball or softball next season are strongly encouraged to attend.  Prospective student-athletes will not only get a chance to meet the head coaches, but will be allowed to demonstrate their skills in a number of different settings.  The athletes will show off their fielding, hitting, throwing, pitching, and running abilities in a two hour time slot. 

Per NJCAA rules "a prospective student-athlete must have completed his/her junior year in high school or home school equivalent to participate in an audition."  Prospective student athletes also must be able to provide verification that he/she has received a physical examination in the past 13 months prior to the event.

Student-athletes are being asked to register by February 28th.  The online registration form can be found here, or by going to the baseball and softball pages on www.baynorse.com.   Athletes attending are required to bring their own glove and athletic attire, and are encouraged to bring their own bats and catchers gear when applicable.  Any baseball questions should be directed at Mike Pankow, while softball questions will be fielded by Heidi Charon.

Softball players will begin their audition day at 10 am on March 3rd.  Student-athletes are asked to be there at least 15 minutes prior to the start for check-in.  The baseball portion of Audition Day will begin at 12:30.
