Winter Elite Prospect Camp
Location: Reckling Park at Rice University – Houston, TX
Saturday, January 20, 2024
Starts: 9:00am / Ends: 9:00pm
All players are invited to attend our Prospect Camp at Rice University. This camp is an opportunity for High School, Juco, and Transfer Portal players to receive instruction and an evaluation from the Rice baseball coaching staff. Our coaching staff will evaluate each position player based on a defensive skill session, batting practice on the field, and a 40-yard dash. Based on how many pitchers we have, live or coach-pitched simulation games will be played in the afternoon. Each pitcher will be evaluated based on a live bullpen session on the field using our Trackman V3 Stadium system. The Trackman metrics will include velocity, spin rate, horizontal and vertical break, approach angle, tilt, extension, etc. Pitchers will also be evaluated based on their overall command and presence on the mound. All camp activities will be conducted at Rice’s Reckling Park. Our Prospect Camps are the best way for elite players to show their skills to our coaching staff. Rice Showcase Camps are open to any and all entrants – limited only by number, age, grade level and/or gender.
Camp is limited to 50 participants.
Check In begins at 8:30am
What to Bring
Cleats, gloves, bats, batting gloves, helmets, catchers’ equipment, turfs, water bottle, etc.
Lunch will be provided.
In case of inclement weather, all camp activities will remain at Reckling Park in the indoor pitching and hitting facilities.
