Summer Baseball Camp
Time: 9 a.m. - 2 p.m.
Ages: 9 - 13
Registration deadline: Campers may register up until the first day of camp
Beginning this June, MSOE Head Baseball coach Steve Sanfilippo and his coaching staff will be offering an instructional summer youth camp at MSOE's Kern Center and Viets Field. The Baseball Camp will provide a number of advantages to allow ballplayers to enhance their skill set as well as gain a thorough understanding of the game. Additional instruction will be provided by MSOE's baseball players which will allow campers to receive a "hands on" experience. The instructional sessions will allow campers to gain a higher knowledge of the game while fast-tracking them in their own individual development, ultimately creating a competitive advantage.
