Additional Information This camp is designed to focus on both defensive and offensive fundamentals and skills to mold a solid all-around athlete. During the morning defensive session, campers will be split up by position (position players, pitchers, and catchers) to work on position-specific skills. The pitching session consists of a pitching talk about grips, strategies, and situations, but NO live pitching will occur to a catcher. Catchers will be able to work on blocking, receiving, framing, throw-downs, and more! In the afternoon, campers will be put through drills similar to what we do in practice to enhance their offensive game. Camp will conclude with offensive games and a HR derby!
