Baseball Showcases San Diego, Colleges from Around Area
Attention High School players, join us in San Diego to be seen!
University of California San Diego & America’s Baseball Camps and the have teamed up to bring you our College Prospect Baseball Camp. In 2017, the UCSD baseball team won another NCAA West Regional Championship AND finished as the National Runner-UP. We are excited to welcome CCAA Coach of the Year, Eric Newman along with San Diego State, University of San Diego, Pt. Loma, San Diego Christian and more for this amazing three days of baseball.
Players will be evaluated and train daily at the beautiful Triton Ballpark, home of the UC San Diego Tritons. Don’t expect to stand around! Just as in college baseball, we will spend our training time on evaluating times, techniques, skills and live play. Players will spend up to 20 hours with our professional staff while receiving verbal assessment of their skills throughout the week. The goal for our staff is to provide you feedback and where you stand in taking your game to the next level… and beyond! You will get honest feedback and you will improve your game and skill set.
Campers will be broken into groups by age, grade and ability levels.
Professional Pitching Mechanics, Swing Video Analysis or Fielding Analysis
Players will be evaluated personally with Video Analysis software and have the chance to have their swing and/or their pitching mechanics and/or fielding techniques broken down by a Professional Instructor. Professional Instructors will provide an evaluation of feedback, changes and recommend drills to help fix or improve your swing, pitching mechanics or fielding techniques.
