As of Tuesday morning, only 10 spots remained for the Naturals two-day youth instructional camp, to be held August 4th and 5th (9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.).
The youth camp is designed for children ages 7 through 12 to receive on-field instruction and participate in drills designed to improve fundamental skills.
This is a complete instructional baseball experience that is very unique to this area. All campers will have the chance to develop numerous skills directly from the pros. There will be numerous learning stations set up, with a major emphasis on hitting, fielding, pitching, catching, base running and bunting, with instruction from Naturals Manager Brian Poldberg, Hitting Coach Terry Bradshaw, Pitching Coach Larry Carter, and five current Naturals each day.
Participants receive a Naturals Youth Baseball Camp T-Shirt and are treated to a ballpark lunch each day. Each child also receives four (4) vouchers for a General Admission Ticket on the Subway Berm at any regular season game based on availability.
