Tryouts for those who wish to be part of the Arizona Diamondbacks' Golden Glovers team for the 2019 regular season will take place Sunday.

Tryouts will be held at Matt Mantei Field at Clark Park at 1730 S. Roosevelt St. in Tempe. Registration will begin Sunday at 10 a.m., and tryouts will begin at 11 a.m. The event is open to the public.

Anyone 55 years of age and older is eligible. Those who wish to try out are asked to wear athletic gear and bring water and a baseball glove to the park.

Golden Glovers will be responsible for collecting baseballs that are hit foul down the first- and third-base lines during games at Chase Field this season.

Two years ago, ABC15 producer Gary Sarnoff auditioned for a Golden Glover role.
