Camp Description: The Bears winter Infield is an instructional camp focused on improving all aspects of infield play for a player who wants to be able to play infield at the collegiate level. Bear instruction will be led by UNC Infield Coach Jake Ek, current UNC Infielders, the rest of the UNC Baseball Staff. Coach Ek played under the well renown Kai Correa at UNC in 2015 and 2016 and has taken a lot of his teaching’s into his own coaching.
