Steve Brandon from the Portland Tribune wrote an amazing article on the up coming trip, read all about it.


On August 21st, The Portland Pickles hosted the first public tryout since the Portland Mavericks many years ago. 

 The Pickles All stars will be playing their sister team the hometown Mazatlan Venados on October 9th, in the Venados new 16,000-seat stadium.  

 Many great participants caught the eye of our talent evaluators, but none as much as our winner, Mr. Mark Triolo.  Triolo a 32 year-old San Diego native that has made Portland his home. Rumor has it, the night of the tryout, Triono showed up just in time, hit 3 home runs in batting practice then made his way down to the bullpen where he was able to reach speeds of 90 MPH. Exactly the kind of player the Pickles were looking for. “It’s an honor to be selected, I truly believe this is an opportunity of a lifetime to go play a game like this down in Mexico” Triolo stated moments after he found out he was selected as the winner.  

 Join us in congratulating Mark as he will join Pickle greats such as Zander Clarke, Joey Cooper, Matt Hardy and many more on the Mazatlan Roster.
