2008 Shorter College Baseball Camp


Daily Camp Highlights

       There will be three special day camps for youngsters between the ages of five and thirteen. Fundamentals will be stressed to include pitching, throwing, catching, hitting, fielding, base-running, and team concepts, as well as, game strategies for baseball. Each group will be instructed by stations throughout the morning by qualified coaches and college players. Once all stations are completed, the campers will come together for team concepts and will be separated by age to play in a controlled scrimmage game.

      The camps will be kept small so that INDIVIDUAL ATTENTION is stressed. The camps are held Monday through Friday from 8:30a.m.to 12:00 noon each day, rain or shine. Facilities are available at the Winthrop-King Centre, located on campus, for inside instruction should the weather be inclement.


The Facilities

       The camp site will be held at the Robert H. Ledbetter Baseball Complex, located on the Shorter College campus. The baseball field will be used during the camp. Pitching machines, batting cages and videotapes will be used as instructional tools by the camp. Each camper will receive a videotape showing the camper hitting, pitching and fielding.



In order to maintain the highest quality of instruction, each camp is limited to size. One of Coach LarryÕs goal is working personally with each camper. Large camps of hundreds of campers cannot accomplish the kind of personalized instruction that is an essential part of the Shorter College Baseball Camp philosophy. EARLY ENROLLMENT IS ENCOURAGED. Applications will be processed on a first come, first served basis.
