CORVALLIS, Ore. - Oregon State's annual Winter Baseball Camps are right around the corner. There will be three sessions taking place at the Merritt Truax Indoor Center this December for players age 8-18. The first session is the All-Skills Day Camp taking place Dec. 20-21; the hitting camp on Dec. 27; and a pitching and catching camp on Dec. 28.
All three camps are taught by OSU head coach Pat Casey, his Beaver coaching staff, and exceptional coaches from the junior college and high school ranks. Campers will receive both individual and group instruction on the correct techniques of the game with emphasis given to each camper's primary area of interest.
The all-skills camp will run from 9 a.m.-11:30 a.m. on Dec. 20-21. It will feature instruction in hitting, fielding, throwing, base running, pitching and catching. Check-in will be held at 8:30 a.m. on Dec. 20, and tuition for the session is $65. Campers should bring their own glove, cap, batting gloves, baseball shoes, and sneakers; catchers should bring their own gear if possible.
The hitting camp will run from 9 a.m.-1:30 p.m. on Dec. 27. It will feature instruction on swing mechanics, count hitting, drills to isolate specific areas of the swing, situational hitting and bunting techniques.
