A total of 98 players were invited today to try out for the U.S. Men’s team that will compete at the Federation of International Lacrosse (FIL) World Championships in Denver July 10-19, 2014.

Tryouts are scheduled for Aug. 30-Sept. 1 at Goucher College in Baltimore.

Those who are being invited were announced at halftime of the ESPN2 telecast of the Denver Outlaws-Chesapeake MLL game this afternoon.
