The Cory Lidle Foundation, an organization that remembers the late and former Valley baseball star through charity work, is forming a travelball program to honor Lidle, who grew up in West Covina and played little league, pony, Mickey Mantle and Babe Ruth baseball during his youth.
The organization will have two teams, one for 2011-12 seniors and one for 2011-12 sophomores and juniors. Tryouts are scheduled for next week at Northview High School.
Tryouts for 2011-12 sophomore and juniors will be at 5 p.m. on Tuesday, Aug. 9 and 10 a.m.on Saturday, Aug. 13. Tryouts for 2011-12 seniors will be at 2 p.m. on Aug. 13.
More teams may be added later, depending on interest.

    I am so happy to see that Cory will continue to be remembered through this effort. Hopefully there will be an overwhelming response from the community and the organization will have to add teams up and down the skill and age spectrum.

    Good luck and please keep us apprised of games, rosters, tourneys and all other info.
