High Energy 13U Selects Development Camp Great Success
From Friday May 5th through Sunday May 7th , Aldergrove Athletic Park hosted 48 of the top 13U BC Baseball players from around the province at the 2017 BC Baseball 13U Selects Development Camp.
The players had each earned an invitation to the camp through one of the five tryouts held throughout the province in April. The players were coached and worked on advanced skills in Physical Preparation, Speed and Agility, Infielding, Outfielding, Catching, Pitching, Hitting and the Mental Game, with a huge emphasis on playing the game the “right way” with hustle and energy.
Saturday featured two scrimmages of 10 innings each going on the two fields simultaneously where 42 pitchers got to pitch an inning each, all in a total of 2 ½ hours. The energy was amazing and the talent level extremely high for this age group.
From the camp a team of 13 players will be chosen to play on the BC Baseball 13U Selects Team BC in the13U Triple Crown’s Tri-Cities Slugfest – Pasco/Richland/Kennewick, WA, June 16 – 18, 2017. As the camp ended and the players headed home it was easy to see the many goodbyes, friendships formed and spark of enthusiasm for the game the players will be taking back to be leaders on their teams.
