Pat Murphy's All Nine Baseball Academy 2004 Specialty Camps

Nov. 9, 2004

TEMPE, Ariz. -- Arizona State University Baseball and Head Coach Pat Murphy's All Nine Baseball Academy will be hosting three Specialty baseball camps this fall for 13-18 year old players.

The 2004 Winter Specialty Camp on December 4-5 is a terrific way for high school position players to improve their defensive abilities and their offensive approach. Campers can expect to receive hands-on instruction by our players and coaches, including video analysis of their swing. Each individual will receive helpful tips specifically geared toward their own style of play and their position on the field. Campers will come away with a better understanding of the game and themselves.

Pitchers & Catchers will also have a chance to hone up on their skills at our 2004 Pitching/Catching Clinics to be held on Nov. 21-22 and December 18-19. Proper mechanics, game mentality, and pitcher/catcher relationship will be emphasized. Pitchers will have an opportunity to learn what it takes to pitch at the next level, focusing on the same concepts taught to the ASU pitchers. Video analysis will allow our coaches to break down each camper's mechanics to see what works and what needs to be improved upon.

Catchers will also be given plenty of information and instruction on the proper way to catch. From receiving and throwing, to catching pop-ups and taking control of the game, campers will be exposed to the same physical and mental drills as the Sun Devil catchers. Campers will also have an opportunity to work on their offensive approach, including video analysis on their swing.

Cost for the specialty camps is $350. Space is limited for all camps. For further information please contact All 9 Baseball Academy at (480) 965-3920 or visit our website address at
