Come join the Rice Coaching staff as we take you through an individual assessment of your pitching identity. Using our state of the art MARKERLESS motion capture system from KinaTrax, AMTI force plates, Trackman ball flight system, Edgertronic video and a functional movement screening, we will be able to assess how you move on the mound and give you a plan to help develop you into the pitcher you want to become. As you participate in this experience you will have the opportunity to learn from:

  • Rob Hardy: Director of Player Development/Pitching Lab Coordinator
  • Adam Gurin: Baseball Analytics Coordinator


At the conclusion of your time within the Pigpen, we will set up a half hour meeting with you (Zoom) to discuss our report on you. Everything discussed will conclude with correctives that we suggest for you as the pitcher!  This will include:

  • Detailed Motion Capture report
  • Detailed Force Plate data
  • TrackMan Ball Flight
  • Edgertronic Video


*Rice Baseball Camps are open to any and all entrants (limited only by number, age, and grade level)

Camp Philosophy

The growth and success of Rice Baseball Camps are primarily due to the baseball team’s long history of success on the diamond. This history includes 197 players drafted by the MLB, 7 College World Series Appearances, and 1 National Championship. Head coach Jose Cruz Jr., a graduate of Rice University and 12-Year Major-Leaguer, will be in attendance for all of our camps. Our ultimate goal is to provide our knowledge and expertise to help grow each individual’s love for the game of baseball.
