Winter Baseball Hitting Camps to be held at Potomac State
Potomac State College will be holding Winter Hitting Camps on Sunday, January 20th for ages 13 to 17 and Sunday, January 27th for ages 6 to 12. The camps will be held at the College’s Lough Gymnasium from 1 – 4 p.m.; registration will begin at noon.
Head Baseball Coach Doug Little is coordinating the camps along with assistant coaches Don Schafer and Brock Stevens. Current Potomac State baseball players will serve as instructors.
Participants will learn the latest in hitting techniques, focusing on preparing hitters to compete at a higher level. Lessons will be given on the mechanics of the swing along with hitting and bunting drills. Participants will learn how to develop a plan and the skills needed to take with them each time they’re at bat.

Campers will be divided by age and skill level. All campers should bring baseball bats, batting gloves, tennis shoes for indoor use, caps, and uniform pants or clothing suitable for play. The cost of the camp is $50. Checks should be made payable to: Potomac State Baseball.
