General Information

 

Camp Philosophy: The continued success of the Rice Baseball Camps may be largely attributed to the staff's commitment to the individual player. Through limited enrollment, low player/teacher ratios are maintained ensuring each camper the quality instruction to maximize development. Every effort will be made to instill in each participant the muscle memory necessary to habituate correct form with drill work and close supervision. The camps are under the direction of Wayne Graham and the Rice baseball staff. Instructors may include current and former Owl players and area high school coaches.

Reckling Park: The Rice Owls Baseball Camps will be conducted at Reckling Park, home of the 2003 NCAA World Series Champions. Since opening day in February of 2000, this state of the art facility has ranked as one of the top venues in college baseball. Amenities include spacious chairback seating with cupholders, locker rooms for umpires, home and visiting clubs, private luxury suites, a fully equipped weight room and indoor and outdoor batting cages.

Reckling Park located on the Rice University Campus at 6100 Main. Primary entrances are #8 off University Boulevard or #18 off Rice Boulevard.
