Rhody Prospect Camp08/25/2018 ~ Saturday Registration Ends: 08/25/2018$150.00 - $175.00 | Bill Beck Field, URI- Kingston Campus 3 Keaney Rd. Kingston, RI
The Rhody Prospect Camp is specifically geared for high school baseball players who have an interest in playing baseball at the University of Rhode Island. A number of our former and current players have made a name for themselves by way of our Prospect Camps. The camp will consist of a pro-style work out (60-Yard Dash, fielding and throwing from position, and batting practice, pitcher bullpens) as well as position specific skill instruction.
Players will also get the chance to see the athletic facilities and meet with current players during the games! In the past, many other local college coaches have been in attendance. We suggest that all participants sign up early in order to ensure a place in camp! We look forward to meeting and speaking with all of you!
Equipment: Players are expected to bring a glove, baseball pants, sneakers, cleats, a bat and helmet if they have one, catchers gear for catchers.
Facility: Built in memory of former Rhode Island baseball and football coach, Bill Beck Field originally opened in 1966 and has since served as the home of the Rams.
In November of 2007, an anonymous donor pledged $1-million to the Rhody baseball program, initiating facility renovations designed to equip the Rams with one of the finest ballparks in all of New England. Seventeen months and $1.4-million dollars later, the 2009 Rhode Island baseball team has a completely resurfaced field consisting of the same artificial FieldTurf used by the Minnesota Twins, Tampa Bay Rays and Toronto Blue Jays. Also included in the renovation project were a new backstop, scoreboard, fencing and bullpens.
Aside from providing URI with an outstanding competitive advantage, the improved facility also requires significantly less maintenance which, in turn, allows the team to spend more time on the field throughout the year. After additional fundraising goals are met, the Rams plan to install lighting and construct stadium style seating.
Registration begins at 8:30am at the Hitting Barn on right field side of field.
