The BC Baseball 16U Development camp will wrapped up today. The camp has been on since Friday with more than 30 players from across the province attending. Jim Lefebvre (former MLB manager) has been heading up the camp. One of the topics covered on Saturday was how to hit 90 mph pitching. The camp has two main goals, one, to develop our grade 10 players, and two, to pick the players who will be named to the selects team which represent BC Baseball at the Summer Slam Wood Bat Classic tournament in Tacoma Washington July 6-9th.

BC Baseball received many positive comments on the camp including the following

“Dear Mike Sarai,

My son was invited to the tryouts for the select team. We were all very impressed by the knowledge of the coaches and special guests. All the coaching staff were friendly, funny and very upbeat. My son is really tired today after 3 days of intense training, but it was worth every minute. Thank you for offering a great program. The coaches truly love the sport and it shows. It was run really well and very organized for a large group. It will be a tough job to have to choose the top players, as all the kids played hard. I would love to see more of these training programs offered, even without picking a select team. Just as weekend camps as everyone benefited from the wealth of knowledge.

Thanks again

Just want to express my appreciation for the organizers and coaches of the U16 camp. Three full days of high level baseball that showcase a very positive experience regardless if you are selected. With six coaches, the exposure to drills and new skill set development was top notch. Glad my son was able to participate
