The Angelina College Roadrunner baseball program has established itself as a pipeline for players seeking to advance to the next level, including those at the university levels and the major leagues. With several former Roadrunners on current MLB rosters, AC Baseball is a proven source of locating and developing young talent.
The Roadrunner baseball team will in January hold a winter evaluation camp for prospective players ages 16 and older.
The camp will take place at 10 a.m. on Saturday, January 5 at Roadrunner Field on the Angelina College campus.
The campus will focus on skill evaluation only; there will be no game. Players will be graded on running, arm strength, fielding, hitting and power. Pitchers will throw brief bullpens in order to grade pitches and velocity.
The cost of the camp is $40 to cover administration fees. Players can register early by credit card through the Angelina College Community Services office by calling (936) 633-5206. Late registration will take place at 9:30 a.m. on the 5th for those who could not pre-register; that $40 fee will be cash or check only.
For further information, contact the AC baseball staff at (936) 633-5367, or e-mail head coach Jeff Livin at email@example.com.
