The University of Toledo baseball program will hold its annual holiday camps Saturday and Sunday, Dec. 15 and 16.
These three separate camps are designed to provide athletes with individual instructions covering all areas of the game and are divided into groups by age for instruction. The Rockets’ coaching staff and players will provide detailed instruction on hitting, throwing, catching, fielding, pitching and base running.
The Toledo Baseball Practice Facility features pitching machines, batting cages and mounds that enable campers to receive instruction in all aspects of the game. New FieldTurf, new batting cage nets and new lights recently were installed to enhance the facility.
