Niagara University to offer baseball prospect camp

High-school aged baseball players looking to take their game to the next level will have a chance to take the next step in the process right before the start of the new school year.

The Niagara University Instructional Prospect Camp will run from 12-6 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 1, and from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 2, on the school’s campus, which is located off Route 104 West in Lewiston. The cost of the camp is $110 per player, and each player will be able to choose whether their focus will be in the outfield or infield, or as either a pitcher or catcher.

Participants can select a second position of focus for the first day of the camp — which will determine positions for Sunday’s best-of-three showcase series of games — for an additional $50 per player.

The camp will consist of offensive and defensive skill work covering all facets of the game, and will allow players to showcase their skills through game play and drills. The camp will be staffed by current Purple Eagle coaches and players.

The camp is not an overnight camp; anyone traveling from out of the area and not otherwise commuting will need to secure their own accommodations. Refunds are not given for cancellations, but a future camp credit can be applied.

Each camper must bring their own equipment, including a glove, bat, batting gloves, helmet, cleats/spikes, running or turf shoes, hat, and any other equipment felt necessary to compete.

For more information on the camp, including registration options, visit www.collegebaseballcamps.com/purpleeagles, or call Jeff Ziemecki at 286-8624.
