Two Sessions Set For Hitting, Running, Catching, Pitching
The "Diamond Pros" instructional baseball camp will once again set up at the Rockaway Little League headquarters in Fort Tilden for two July sessions. Run by camp director Lou Santos, a highly respected college coach, the instructional camp features base-running, catching, throwing, hitting and pitching instruction from high school and college stars. Every player gets individual hitting instruction and then gets to try their new skills in real game situations. In addition, campers will attend a Cyclones game at Keyspan Park this summer and will be introduced on the field as part of the pre-game festivities. Santos gets involved with the coaching. He is seen giving a group batting clinic to seven and eight-year-olds last summer. Every day ends with game play and a review by the staff. On the Friday that ends each week, campers and their families are treated to a free BBQ and a game between the campers and their family members. The first session runs from July 16 to 20 and the second from July 23 to 27. For information, call 718-343-9347 or log on to www.diamondpros. net.
