Winter Showcase and Clinic
Albion Baseball Winter Showcase and Clinic
Pitchers will go through drills for mechanics, arm care, throwing development and also throw a live bullpen at the end of the day.
Catchers will go through a comprehensive drill series teaching the fundamentals of blocking, receiving, throwing, as well as tag and force plays, pop-ups, and bunts. Catchers (and pitchers that would like to) will also go through a series of hitting drills to help improve the swing. All campers will be evaluated on defensive ability, arm-pitching velocity, 60 yd dash, and exit velocity (for hitters).
Infielders and Outfielders will go through a comprehensive defensive drill series teaching all aspects of the position. Campers will also go through a series of hitting drills to help improve the swing. There will be evaluation on all basic baseball skills, as well as on exit velocity, throwing velocity and 60 yd dash.
Instruction: The Albion College Coaching staff, current and past players, as well as area high school coaches will provide the instruction. The athletes will go thru drills working on mechanics and specific drills for pitching/catching. Campers will also spend time learning hitting drills and techniques used by the Britons (if pitchers desire). Approximately half the time will be spent on offense and the other half on defense. While players will be evaluated on both offense and defense this is not just a showcase format camp. Instruction will still be the largest element of the camp. Players will be evaluated on 60 yd. times, arm velocity, ball exit velocity, and other information. Players will also be evaluated and taught on position specific skills.It will be a great opportunity to be evaluated by the Albion College Staff while still being instructed on the finer points of the game.
