|May 23 is Registration Deadline for Jayhawk Baseball Camp|
Boys entering grades one through five during the 200-09 school year are invited to participate in a Jayhawk Baseball Camp being offered by the Johnson County Park and Recreation District. The registration deadline for this year's camp is May 23.
This four-day camp has a broad instructional format and will cover all aspects of the game. The youth-oriented program's goal is to give participants a jump on summer leagues and an opportunity to develop basic skills in the game of baseball, including throwing, fielding, hitting, and pitching. Drills, instructional sessions, games, and other exercises will be used. This camp will be staffed by University of Kansas Head Baseball Coach Ritch Price. Participants should bring their own shoes (no steel cleats), a baseball glove, a bat, catching equipment, and practice attire.
