The Seattle University baseball program welcomes high school players to its annual Summer Prospect Camp, to be held at Meridian Park Field in Shoreline August 10-12.
Campers will work on all aspects of the game, with an emphasis on hitting, pitching and fielding. Campers will be instructed on mechanics and fundamentals based on their position. They will be able to test those skills in simulated games at the end of each day. All instruction will be conducted by college coaches and players.
A "Coaches Corner" will be conducted as well, allowing for campers and parents to learn more about what it takes to be fully prepared on and off the field for college or professional baseball. Admissions, financial aid and eligibility issues will be covered. Parents and campers are encouraged to start writing down questions beforehand for the coaches to answer.
The camp will have representatives from every level of college baseball in the Northwest. A number of schools are invited to attend, even if they can't work the camp, to at least come out and watch to help out in their recruiting efforts. At least one player from every prospect camp offered by Seattle U has been asked to join the Redhawk program.
The cost of the camp, which will run from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. each day, is $229 for pitchers and $259 for position players. The camp for boys ages 14-18 is on a first come, first serve basis. Campers need to go to the Seattle University website at www.goseattleu.com and click on CAMPS. The camp and all the information is under "HS Prospect Camp".
