SUMMER PROSPECT CAMP
The Summer Prospect Camp is an important prospect identification tool for the Bluffton University baseball program. While serving to identify top prospects, it also allows the prospects to spend a day with our program and gain valuable exposure to our staff and players, while performing on Memorial Field, one of the best fields in the region.
Check-in begins at 10:30 AM.
LOCATION: Bluffton University Memorial Field
WHAT TO BRING: Campers should bring all of their own equipment, which should be clearly marked. Sharing of equipment will be highly discouraged. Each camper should also bring their own water bottle and also a snack or light lunch. If possible, campers should bring their own hand sanitizer as well.
WHAT TO EXPECT: In order to provide the best and safest camp experience for each player, we are making a few adjustments. Total registrations will be limited to 40 campers and we will keep campers in small groups during warmups and evaluation periods while utilizing distancing as much as possible. We ask each camper to perform a self-assessment the morning of camp. If you have a fever or feel sick, please stay home! (Campers are encouraged to purchase camp insurance through Ryzer.)
The Bluffton Summer Prospect Camp will include a pro-style workout: a timed running of the 60, defensive evaluation, batting practice and a simulated game. Campers will also have a period of defensive instruction at their primary position. The duration of the game will depend on the number of pitchers that attend the camp. Each participant will have the opportunity to be evaluated at his primary position, and secondary position by availability. Players who indicate pitching as their primary position will be guaranteed to pitch during the simulated game. Players who indicate pitching as a secondary position will be evaluated in a bullpen session (if unable to pitch during the simulated game).
In addition to the evaluation from the coaching staff, each hitter will receive average exit velocity and launch angle from Rapsodo. Pitchers will receive detailed Rapsodo information from their outing as well.
