IU South Bend is set to host the Fall Prospect Camp on Sunday, September 22 at Rex Weade Stadium at Harris Township Junior Baseball Association. For 9th-12th-grade high school players who are interested in being a prospective Titan, this camp will provide prospects the opportunity to show the current Titan baseball staff their skills as well as their ability to improve and develop as a player.
The camp is scheduled to begin at 9:00 a.m. and is expected to last until 3:00 p.m. with check-in at 8:30 a.m.
While working alongside the Titan baseball staff, athletes will have their shot at developing their offensive and defensive skills and showcasing them in game-like situations. Campers will also work on their strength and conditioning skills.
Campers are required to provide all of their own equipment including appropriate uniform and lunch. Athletes will need cleats as well as turf shoes for strength and conditioning.
The cost of the camp will be $75 and there is no deadline for sign-ups. Walk-ups will also be permitted. This camp has been advertised to high schools within a 3- to 4-hour radius in distance from South Bend.
According to assistant coach Zach Lazenby, “This is a multi-dimensional camp. It’s a great opportunity for potential student-athletes to showcase their skills in front of a collegiate staff but also will get instruction and a recruiting talk from our Head Coach, Doug Buysse.”
Current Titan baseball players will also be in attendance to assist in running drills, recording stats, and organizing the 9 innings showcase game.
Camps have been held in the past with much success. However, the staff is hoping for clear skies as last year the camp was canceled due to weather issues.
Questions regarding the camp should be directed to assistant coach Zack Lazenby at email@example.com.
