BATON ROUGE, LA — Southern University Baseball will host two summer baseball camps at Lee Hines Field on the Southern campus.
The Jaguar Prospect Camp will be held June 17-19 from 9 a.m. until noon on the Baton Rouge Campus and will offer baseball instruction to 2013-2016 high school graduates.
The Roger Cador All-Star Youth Camp, which will be held June 24-27, ranges from age 6-14 and campers will learn baseball fundamentals geared towards raising baseball IQ in all areas of the sport.
"We are going to enhance the baseball experience for young people and they will have an appreciation for it," said head coach Roger Cador. "We try to teach them how to play the game the right way."
Drills of baserunning, hitting, catching, throwing and various throwing techniques will be conducted during the camp. The coaches will also be assisted by some of the active players on Southern's roster. Campers can expect to receive an all around learning experience.
Campers are asked to dress weather friendly. Equipment will be provided but campers are asked to provide their own personal material.
"We are truly excited for the kids to come out. They are in for a great experience that will last a lifetime," said assistant coach Fernando Puebla.
