Grand Central Art Center is pleased to announce our next Social Practice Artist in Residence – Portland, OR based artist and athlete Adam Moser.
Moser will realize his lifelong dream of playing in the big leagues by trying out for Major League Baseball (MLB). Recognizing he is not alone in this dream, Moser is looking for individuals of our GCAC community in order to form a 9-member tryout team, the Cut-Off Men.
Team members must be in good physical shape, available to attend events the evening of June 11 and available the complete day of tryouts on June 12 from 6am-10pm. Team members must also be 25 years or older and will be required to sign both the MLB and Grand Central Art Center release of liability forms. Team members must supply their own cleats, gloves, bats and equipment. GCAC will be supplying team jerseys.
The public is invited to a free ball signing event and Dutch Treat Dinner on June 11. The first 50 people will receive an autographed baseball, signed by the entire team.
Details on the dinner can be found at: http://grandcentralartcenter.wordpress.com/2012/06/04/invitation-to-dutch-treat-dinner-ball-signing-june-11-%C2%AD-please-join-us/
The next morning, June 12, the nine members will load into the team van and make their way to the official 2012 Major League Scouting Bureau U.S. Tryout Camp in Compton, CA.
The complete team will show off their skills for the scouts and stay for the entire day, before returning that evening for an official team press conference to be held in our GCAC AIR clubhouse.
If you are interested in joining Adam’s team and trying our for Major League Baseball, please sign-up in person at Grand Central Art Center or by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
