The Lemurs held their second open try-outs Saturday. Manager Pete Incaviglia says he saw a lot of talent. "The first tryouts I didn't think we had a lot of talent here...but I think today we do. I think we have a lot of talent here today ...we actually have a major leaguer...Tony Phillips is here trying out so...actually he's an old teammate of mine. We got a 52-year-old former major leaguer all the way down to some college kids." One of those 'college kids' is Craig Richmond, and the ex-major leaguer Tony Phillips seemed to take a special liking to him. Richmond played at Coppin State University in Baltimore, Md. where he lead the team in on-base percentage and runs scored in his senior year. He said he hopes to get his big start with the Lemurs organization. "Independent pro baseball is a really good way of getting into minor league baseball and officially get into the majors as well...pro baseball is pro baseball all the way around." A 52-year-old, ex-major leaguer also tried out for the team Saturday and Tony Phillips spent over a decade in the big leagues, but why would he want to try out for the lemurs? "He was coaching in the A's organization and someone said he cannot do it anymore...so he’s going to prove to that person that said he can't play that he is able to play." The Coppin State graduate Richmond said he's happy Phillips is taking him under his wing. "It feels humbling really. Glad that he took the time to talk to me and there were millions of guys out there so I'm just happy....happy and blessed." The Lemurs will start spring training on May 5, and their first home game will be May 17.
