WAYNE – A pair of baseball camps are scheduled for late January of 2019 with other dates in the month offered for hitting.

According to a release from the Wayne State Athletics office in mid-December, the Wildcat baseball program will be conducting a pair of camps and a hitting league in January.

A Total Skills Camp is set for Sunday, January 20 followed by a Hitting/Pitching Intensity Camp on Sunday, January 27 in the WSC Recreation Center. An indoor HitTrax hitting league is also scheduled for three Sundays in January (1/13; 1/20/; 1/27) at the WSC Indoor Hitting Facility.

Both camps are open to baseball players ages 8 to 18 and players will be grouped according to their age. The average group size will be four players to ensure quality fundamentals and instruction. Each camp will be held in the WSC Recreation Center from 9 a.m. to noon with registration starting at 8:30 a.m. for each camp.

The Total Skills Camp will emphasize all parts of the game – fielding, pitching, catching, hitting and base running while the Hitting/Pitching Intensity Camp is designed to give each camper with a specific skill set, either pitching or hitting, advanced instruction in each area.

The Wayne State coaching staff and Wildcat baseball team will instruct the camps. The WSC baseball camps have been well attended in the past due in part to the 1-on-1 training and the competent instruction given by the Wildcat players and coaching staff.

Players are asked to bring their glove, bat and gym shoes. The fee for one camp is $50 or $90 for both and includes a camp t-shirt.

The HitTrax Hitting League is new this year, offering area baseball players some of the best hitting technology that includes hitting in your favorite major league stadium with stats and more fun.

The hitting league will be paired up in ages groups (10U, 14U, 18U) with a minimum of four players per team.

Cost for the hitting league is $60 per player for three weeks with another $20 for a video and coach analysis of the player’s swing and will be held on Sunday afternoons.
