Angelina College Roadrunner baseball coaches will host a pair of evaluation camps this summer at Roadrunner Field on the Angelina College campus.

The first camp will take place at 9 a.m. on Saturday, May 28; the second will take place at 9 a.m. on Wednesday, June 15.

This camp is open to all high school graduates, underclassmen or anyone with college eligibility with an interest in playing baseball for Angelina College. It is not an instructional camp and is for evaluation only. Players will be graded on hitting, fielding, throwing and running 60s. Pitchers will throw bullpen sessions for evaluation purposes.

There will be a $10 fee for each participant. Coaches ask that players arrive at least 30 minutes prior to the workouts.

AC head coach Jeff Livin will head the camp. He currently boasts four former Roadrunner players on Major League Baseball rosters: Clay Buchholz (Boston Red Sox), Andrew Cashner (San Diego Padres), Josh Tomlin (Cleveland Indians) and Jason Gurka (Colorado Rockies). Several of Livin’s former players also are working their way through the minor leagues.
