Our annual Open House will be held Sunday, January 6, 2013, in the Lockport Township High School Field House, 1333 E. 7th Street, Lockport, IL 60441. Check-in time will be no later than 10:15 a.m. with the exposure portion running from 11:00 am to 2 pm. This year, we will again include both high school pitchers and high school catchers in the camp. Over 200 college coaches will be invited to attend. We expect 30-50 to be present.
We limit the amount of people at this event. Up to 54 pitchers and 54 catchers will be registered. ***We will accept 27 catcher applications, then start the Catcher Wait List. If we reach 27 more on the Wait List, we will open the camp to 54 catchers. This is to keep group rotations even. Each camper will be assigned a number on a shirt, provided by us, and will be working out in groups of 9 for 3 rotations each of 7-minute intervals. The college coaches in attendance will be provided a roster of the pitchers and catchers. This roster will include academic and personal data about each player. Players will be radar timed at the site.
