CU baseball to hold single-day camps


ATHENS — Sign-ups are still being accepted for two Concord University baseball showcase camps on July 26 and Aug. 14.

In addition to the Mountain Lions’ coaching staff, representatives from other NCAA Division I, II, III, NJCAA and NAIA coaches will also be in attendance.

Both camps will be conducted on the Concord campus at Anderson Field and run from 1 to 5 p.m. at a cost of $75 per player. To register for either showcase, visit http://collegebaseballcamps.com/culions.

The camps are designed for players at least 14 years old up to those competing on the junior college level. Attendees will take part in a pro-style workout that includes live batting practice along with advanced skill instruction for all positions,  including pitching. Players will have the opportunity to be evaluated by the Concord University baseball staff as well as other schools.

Participants must bring their own baseball equipment including a glove, bat, running shoes or turf shoes, hat and any other equipment they feel necessary to compete.

Concord University baseball camps and prospect events are a great opportunity to take a player’s game to the next level.

Questions regarding the camps should be directed to Concord head coach Andrew Wright via e-mail at coachwright@concord.edu or by calling 304-384-5332.

The year 2013 was a historic season for Concord. The Mountain Lions set single-season school records for wins (36) and games played (56) in addition to winning the West Virginia Intercollegiate Athletic Conference Championship and qualifying for the NCAA Tournament for the second time in three seasons.
