Washington Baseball School and ABC ask high school and youth players from around Washington and Seattle to join the close to 90 players, that attended last year summer baseball camp, for our 17th Annual Diamond Dawg Experience.  This camp is designed to provide the players with pro instruction in all aspects of the game learning the Pack 12 way. Players will spend up to 20 hours practicing drills and playing in games while receiving verbal assessment of their skills throughout the week.  Our daily formats are written by directors with years of Professional baseball backgrounds and mirror a Spring Training type day. Huge reps and teaching all day long with live games mixed in.  Campers will have the opportunity to receive instruction from some of the top coaches from the region.

Washington Baseball School and ABC are known nationally for a "non-standing around" approach meaning players get the maximum amount of work in daily and have a blast doing it. Eat, live and breathe the game with us while we train daily at the Marymoor Park turf fields in Redmond, just several miles east of Seattle.
