ON CAMPUS

baseball camp

Monday, Aug. 2, marks the beginning of camp for high school students interested in improving their skills in America's favorite pastime.

High school seniors and junior college players can take a swing at what a professional baseball tryout is like -- and maybe even score a spot on the K-State team roster -- during the Brad Hill Select Camps. The first session, marked High School Select Camp I, begins Monday at Frank Myers Field, and will run through Tuesday. High School Select Camp II will run Aug. 9-10.   

The Brad Hill Select Camps provide players who want to continue their playing careers at the next level an opportunity to be evaluated in a professional scouting format and in live games by the K-State coaching staff and other college coaches.

Thirty percent of the current K-State baseball roster is made up of former campers from events similar to this camp.
