Auburn catcher Ryan Jenkins, now a student assistant coach for the Tigers, keeps South Carolina's Bobby Haney from scoring in a 2010 game.
AUBURN, Ala. - Auburn will add another baseball camp to its winter slate, hosting a camp for high school catchers on Tuesday nights in December and January, head coach Sunny Golloway announced today.
The Auburn Baseball Winter Catching Camp will be limited to 10 participants and will consist of six sessions, beginning Thursday, Dec. 5, and running every Tuesday night through Jan. 21, 2014 (there will be no sessions on Christmas Eve or New Year's Eve). Space is available on a first-come, first-serve basis and is open to any and all applicants in grades 8-12.
This camp will teach the campers the fundamentals of catching, while working on specific details of receiving, throwing, blocking, and more.
Catching instruction will run from 6:30-8:30 p.m. at each session. Former Auburn catcher and current student assistant coach Ryan Jenkins will be the lead instructor for the camp. Jenkins spent three seasons in professional baseball in the Kansas City Royals organization as a catcher, reaching the Triple-A level.
All sessions of the camp will take place at beautiful Plainsman Park on the campus of Auburn University.
The total cost for all six sessions is $300, and the fee is non-refundable. Due to the limited number of spaces available in the camp, all registrations are considered final for all six sessions.
