Baseball Winter Camps Approaching

Nov. 1, 2006

SAN DIEGO, Calif. - The University of San Diego baseball team announces its winter baseball camps. The camp will be Dec. 26-27 for youth baseball players between ninth and 12th grade.

The USD coaching staff would love the opportunity to watch baseball players for two days against some of the best high school competition in the Western United States. The goal of this showcase camp is to teach, develop and evaluate.

Some of the features of the camp include; pre-game batting practice, pre-game infield/outfield, game instruction and drills as well as written evaluations from the USD coaching staff. The coast of the camp is only $250 (lunch not included).

USD has partnered with Bartell Hotels to offer those who attend the camp special discounted rates on rooms. Bartell Hotels will donate a portion of the total room coast to the university's student scholarship fund. For more hotel information visit http://www.bartellhotels.net/usdpartnership.

Some quick information on USD head coach Rich Hill. He is entering his ninth season at the University of San Diego.
