I just got 6 stitches in my forearm yesterday after a girl in metal cleats slid into me. School softball tryouts are tomorrow, can I go?

In brief: Stiches and softball

As long as you keep the area covered and you don't over do things you should be fine.
You might want to take an over the counter pain medication prior to tryouts. Don't make a big deal about it. if you have pulling at the stiches you are over doing things
Good luck
