AVON, Ohio — Kids ages 6-14 can walk — and play on — the field of dreams at the Lake Erie Crushers’ summer baseball camps.
The three-day camps will be held at the 3,400-seat Mercy Health Stadium, which was built in 2009.
Alyssa Pisani, director of promotions and community affairs for the Crushers, said: “This is my first year with the Crushers, and I’m very excited to see what the season holds for us all.
“The Crushers Baseball Camp is a great way to have fun and grow the love of the game within the community. The kids are going to have a great time learning from players and building memories to last a lifetime.”
The camp typically attracts more than 60 kids, but is expected to double this year, Pisani said.
The baseball activities for the kids include “some stretches and warm-ups and other warm-ups at special stations, plus a clubhouse tour, where they will also do some agility drills on all three days. Then, on the third day, there will be a home run derby and some gifts for achievements, like the most improved player,” she said.
She noted that all the activities are led by Crushers players and coaches. Pisani and Crushers Assistant Head Coach James Keller will be running the camp.
“I went to a lot of camps growing up,” said Keller. “It was at these camps that I met some of my best friends, created fun memories and was able to start learning about the game of baseball.
“The kids are going to have a lot of fun and learn about this great game at the Lake Erie Baseball Camp.”
Cost for the camp is $195 for each camper. But they can register as part of a team and get a discounted rate of $180, assuming there are teams of five or more to which they can be assigned.
Two sessions are offered: June 27-29 and Aug. 1-3. The time frame is from 8:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. on the opening day and 9 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. on the second and third days.
In addition to the three days of baseball instruction, campers will receive a camp jersey, lunch on all three days (unless parents want to send a lunch along with their child) and a home box ticket voucher to a future Crushers regular season game.
“Kids can choose their own game,” said Pisani. “Just come and redeem the voucher at the box office.”
She also said there are two Crushers games that will take place during the camp sessions, where the kids will have a chance to go down on the field and be recognized.
Regarding what to bring, Pisani said the kids can bring sneakers or shoes with rubber spikes — no metal cleats. They can also bring their own glove, bat and helmet if they wish, but all will be supplied as well during the camps.
Registration for the camps can be done by calling 440-934-8232 or visit [email protected].
