Prospect Elite Thanksgiving Showcase
Location: Benedetti Diamond- San Francisco, CA
Saturday, November 29, 2014 to Sunday, November 30, 2014
Camp Cost: $300.00
The camp will begin with a unique experience not usually seen at a prospect camp.
The event will start Saturday, November 29th at 9:00am in the bleachers at Benedetti Diamond. The day will begin with registration and an introduction to the Dons staff and culture as well as a Q and A session. After the morning meet and greet, players will begin their workout. The players will be lead in the same warm-up routine as the Dons by coaches and players currently at USF. They will then go through a workout on the field where they will receive instruction from Coach Nino Giarratano, Coach Troy Nakamura, Coach Seth Etherton and Coach Steve Domecus. On Sunday, November 30th, players will be divided up into teams and play games. The playing time will break down as follows:
1. Pitcher Only/Pitcher Primary- 2 innings
2. Position Players- 3 at bats
3. Two way player, pitching as second position- 1 inning
Along with the games and workout players will also receive instruction in the mental side of the game, a campus tour and will go through a strength and conditioning workout (clean shoes required).
At the University of San Francisco, it's about more than what happens between the lines of a baseball field. Our Prospect Elite Thanksgiving Showcase will help us develop your skills and insights as a baseball player, but also as a young man.
Personal interaction with USF coaches, staff and players.
Instruction and evaluation by the current USF coaching staff.
