Consistently recognized as one of the nation’s elite college baseball program each year, Houston Baseball has elevated its program over the last several seasons and now remains among the Top 25 under head coach Todd Whitting.
2018 will mark the eighth year for Whitting at the helm and under his guidance, the Cougars have won four American Athletic Conference Championships (two tournament (2014, 2017) and two regular-season titles (2015, 2017)). Houston has been awarded two NCAA Regional host bids (2015, 2017), while advancing to an NCAA Super Regional following a Regional Championship in Baton Rouge, La. in 2014.
Houston Baseball has notched three 40+ win seasons in the last four years and is coming off two American Championships in 2017, which was a feat that had not been accomplished since 2000. Also since his arrival back to Houston, Whitting has coached 30 All-Conference honorees, four All-Americans, seven Freshman All-Americans, one conference Player of the Year, one conference Pitcher of the Year, one conference Newcomer of the Year and four conference Freshman of the Year.
30 Cougars were selected in the MLB First-Year Player Draft since 2011 and of the 31, 25 were undrafted out of high school – showing the development of the Houston program. The 2017 Draft class saw a first-round selection, a third-round selection, and a fourth-round selection, while former Cougar Austin Pruitt (2012-13) is excelling in the Major Leagues as a starting pitcher for the Tampa Bay Rays.
Houston Baseball has not only succeeded in Championship play, but have accomplishment much more off the field, landing a 3.0 team cumulative GPA every semester since Whitting took over seven years ago.

What if I have to cancel a camp?
We do not offer refunds on canceled campers, just a future camp credit if you decide to cancel, but we do have what is called “Cancellation Protection”. We offer basic Cancellation Protection to allow participants some peace of mind in case plans change. This allows us to keep our prices low and provide the best service possible. Due at the time of registration, Cancellation Protection entitles you to a full refund of camp fees should you cancel your registration more than 14 days prior to the start of an overnight camp, and 7 days prior to the start of a day camp. If you cancel within 14 or 7 days of the start of your session, we will give you a camp credit for all money paid. The credit is valid for three years from camp date at any of our camps. Credit with insurance is transferable to family members or friends, and good toward a future camp.
