Also, slightly used Demarini BBCOR baseball bats will be on sale for $60 at camp. These are the bats required for high school use. Sizes will include 32, 33, and 34 ounce bats while supplies last. Hats, GWU baseball t-shirts, and adult size GWU game jerseys will also be on sale that day.
What to wear and what to bring- Wear what you feel comfortable wearing whether that's your uniform, sweat pants and sweat shirt or whatever. Bring a hat and if you bring spikes, please also bring flat shoes to wear in the indoor cage. Bring your glove and if you have a bat, make sure it is marked with your name. Bring a batting helmet if you have one as well.
Where to go- Both the morning and afternoon sessions of camp will take place at the Crest High School baseball field in Boiling Springs.
How to pay- Please do not pay in advance. You can pay the $40 fee in cash or by check on the day of camp. Checks should be made out to Diamond Dog Baseball.
What to do if there is inclement weather- Because Crest has indoor cages, camp will likely take place regardless of the weather. But if you have concerns, check www.gwubaseball.blogspot.com the day before the camp for weather updates. If there is no update, then camp will be held as scheduled.
Schedule- Camp will begin with proper stretching and warm-up and quickly move to defensive position work. Pitchers will each throw a bullpen at some point and catchers will catch those bullpens while receiving instruction. Infielders and outfielders will be on the main field doing drills during that time. Afterward, any participant who wants to hit will have the opportunity for drill work in the cages and live hitting on the field. Those who wish to only concentrate on pitching will be able to continue to work with a pitching instructor for drills, techniques, etc. during the hitting sessions.
