Hi Coach Hill
This is Devin Dennis. I just wanted to say thanks for the great camp yesterday. It was well run and I had a great experience. The USD facility and program is really outstanding. I would love to stay in contact but I do understand some of the new NCAA rules regarding contact with 2020’s and 21’s, but September of my Junior year is not too far away. I will send updates regarding my summer schedule as a reference in case you or your staff would be interested. Once again, thanks for the great experience.

Hello Coach Hill, The two day camp experience was very beneficial in my opinion and I had a great time. I learned an incredible amount about the mental side of the game through the five amazing guest speakers you presented us. My mindset has completely changed for the better and I want to thank you for that. As for the baseball aspect of the camp, playing on that masterpiece of a field is always such a great experience. I wish I could take BP on that nice of a yard every day. I had never done some of the drills in the outfield that we did, and I look forward to taking them back to Amador Valley high school for my Junior year this season. I overall I want to thank you for putting together a fantastic few days, and I look forward to attending the more camps in the future and staying in contact with you. Go Toreros! -Joey Battilega
Coach Hill and the staff provided an amazing camp featuring excellent field drills, strength and conditioning and exceptional motivational speakers. Each aspect of the camp was professional and inspiring to the players attending My son, Owen, already asked if can he go again next year! Thanks again to Coach Rich Hill and his staff.

Hello Coach Hill,
It was such a pleasure to meet you at your ID baseball camp yesterday. From a parent’s perspective, this was different than many other camps my son has attended. You’ve created an environment that felt less stressful than other camps. I think this is important for both you as a coach, and as well for the players. They want to play their best, and you want to see these kids at their best. The coach’s interaction with these players was amazing. You/they gave praise when they watched a player do well and of course instruction when needed. Dustin certainly enjoyed this camp. The feedback I usually hear from him is how he did well in one are or perhaps didn’t feel solid in another area, but not much about the environment. The feedback Dustin gave me after this camp, was how amazing it would be to play for you. You remind him of his travel coach Joe Gerber, who brings out his confidence which really shows when he plays, and Dustin strives to please him. This is not a kiss butt moment, I assure you, but there are certain coaches who can bring out the best in players because their coaching style, and that makes these players want to succeed. I appreciated your openness, enthusiasm and candor. Also, Cody Decker use to use Jukebox Hero as his walk-up song when he played for the San Diego Padres 😉
Thank you again and hopefully we see you again soon. Looking forward to a strong Torero finish.
Dear Coach Hill:
I just wanted to say thank you for a great camp. I learned a lot from all the coaches, and will continue to test the outfielder and try to go from 1st to 3rd, always. The individual catching drills were also very beneficial. I look forward to talking to you soon
Matthew and I were both very impressed by you, your coaches and the overall camp experience this weekend.
Thank you for taking the time to do something so nice for these middle school kids. I hope you will have more camps in the future.
I love the attached photo – and hope that as the years pass you won’t have to bend down so far when I take a photo of you and Matthew!
All my best – we will look forward to watching USD play again this year.
My son had a great time at camp yesterday! Thank you so much for making it a positive experience for him.
Hey coach. This is Nathaniel Slamans dad.
We just wanted to tell you how much he enjoyed the camp. This is his second year and we will be back next year. Love to get out of Vegas for the weekend.
I’m not sure about the new contact rules but we love your program and its #1 on his list. We will do our part to bring him back next year bigger and faster.
Take care and thanks again,
Greetings Coach Hill,
Scott Fox here, father of Trevor Fox. Trevor and I wanted to say thank you very much for holding such a terrific Middle School Prospect camp this past weekend. We unfortunately just confirmed that Trevor was playing with a double ear infection all weekend, but he still had an amazing time getting to know and work with you, Coach Ramazzotti, and the rest of the staff, not to mention playing at such a beautiful facility.
We both look forward to the possibility of Trevor participating in USD Prospect camps in the near future.
If you could please extend our appreciation to the entire coaching staff, it would be appreciated.
Thanks again Coach Hill!
Hi Coach Rich this is Jason, I went to the USD first ever middle school thanksgiving prospect camp and I was wandering if I can go to a Toreros game and see u again. I really enjoyed your camp it was super good catcher training and it was cool to be able to go in the lounge he field and the dugout. So if I can go to one of your games this season and say hi to you again I would enjoy that a lot. Please email me back I would love to get in touch with the USD Baseball program.
Great job, you guys are a 1st class club… Tim Quinn
Thank you for the opportunity to show you my ability. You gave me a lot of desires through the camp to play in your team. I’m glad that I could show you my baseball skills.
I appreciate the time you shared with me. I’m very interested in playing in your team and look forward to hearing from you.
Thank you and have a great day.
Hello Coach Hill. This is William Chamberlain thanks for a great camp and the encouragement to keep working hard for my goal and dreams. I would love to play for you at USD. But if not still chasing my opportunity to play at next level. your youth camps were the groundwork for my work ethic thank you.
Take care and thanks again!
Thank you for such a great camp yesterday! You and the other coaches provided an incredible baseball environment with high energy, great instruction and even some classic rock music for the spectators, all in beautiful Fowler Park…baseball paradise!
Matt really enjoyed himself. We both really liked your format. It gave the kids lots of opportunities to showcase their abilities in game-like situations. Your energy and enthusiasm kept it fun and competitive. I know this is Matthew’s journey and I don’t want to step on his toes, but I know he is looking forward to following up with you. As a parent, who has been to a lot of camps, I can honestly say yours was thoroughly enjoyable and well run.
Thank you for such a great event. Our son Christopher Morris really enjoyed the camp. Learned alot of great drills. What a beautiful campus and field. It was very organized and what great weather we had. Thank you again coach and hopefully our son will have an opportunity to be a team player at USD.
The Morris family
Thanks again for all of your assistance.
Also, as a result of my experience at this camp I have decided to attend the USD Prospect Camp later on this month. I look forward to learning more defensive skills from you as well as have an opportunity to show you the rest of my baseball playing abilities. With that in mind, I am attaching the link to my recruiting profile for you to review. I would look forward to any feedback you might have to offer after you have watched it. I look forward to seeing you after Christmas. Happy Holidays!
Aloha Coach Hill,
I had a great time and learned a lot about being not only a better baseball player, but a better teammate and person as well.
I am very interested in attending USD and playing for you. Please let me know what I can do to improve my chances of one day becoming a part of the USD baseball program.
Looking forward to hearing back from you and I will be sure to keep you updated on both my academic as well as athletic progress.
Thank you for a wonderful camp. Our son learned so much. It was professional, well organized, and a great introduction to this baseball community, as we just moved here 4 days ago from Colorado. We look forward to attending USC home games and thank you again to you and your team for making this accessible to everyone for sign ups etc… Happy New Year!
Hi coach this is Chris Lopez and I just wanted to email you and tell you and your staff thank you so much for this weekend.I feel that I had a personal bond with you and each one of the coaches out there and even some of your players. It was a great weekend.I loved your facility and I would love to be a part of a great program like USD.
I was hoping you would be able to give me some feed back on the weekend and let me know if I may be someone that can be an asset to your team.
Your talk inspired me so much when you said that there is a school for everyone. I wrestled And played baseball all the way up until 2 years ago when I realized that baseball was my passion even after being a two times state champion ….baseball was always on my mind . I would finish a tournament , get dressed in the car and Go out to a baseball game .
I realize that i am a little to the baseball scout scene but i was wrestling when all the camps and summer ball was going on…but now I know that there is a school for everyone and hopefully USD is the school for me.
Thanks again Coach Hill
Dear Coach Hill,
In all, I just want to say thank you for hosting an amazing camp. I am currently working on a program based on the drills that I learned to incorporate them onto the baseball field. I believe that if I continue to work on the drills that I have learned this past weekend, I can become the best infielder (and athlete) I can be. All of the coaches I met were extremely patient and very helpful to all of the kids there. You guys at USD definitely have one of the best coaching staffs I have ever been around.
Good evening Coach,
Coach Hill, Coach Ramazzotti and Coach Viramontes,
Thanks for the great experience coach! By far the best prospect camp I have attended. Hope to play there again.
Great camp. I loved the environment and atmosphere of the entire camp. I would have done this years back if I knew about it. Great exposure, great instruction, and great time playing baseball!
Hey coach this is Jesse Fonteboa from Bishop Gorman. Just wanted to say the experience at USD was phenomenal and the atmosphere of the coaches was great. I had a blast and look forward to being back in two weeks! Thank you for the opportunity. See you in two weeks!
Hey Coach Hill, thanks for a great camp! I have attended at least 7 other college prospect camps and I have to say that this one was the best! I truly loved how we received a very level of instruction in the individual drills. Personally, working with Coach Choate and getting exposed to USD’s every day drills for the pitchers gave me some great takeaways to work on on my own.I especially wanted to thank you for the time with me at the end of the camp. I will definitely plan on coming to see you guys play when you come up to Nor-Cal this season. I will send you, Coach Choate, and Coach Viramontes my latest transcripts and ACT as soon as I get them. Thanks again!
Dominic and I were both very impressed with the talent level of the players, and the professionalism and dedication of the coaches. We were also very impressed with the facilities (who wouldn’t be, right?). Right now, Dominic has the privilege of playing at the best high school facility in the West (or, maybe, anywhere), and would love nothing better than to be able to play at the best collegiate facility and for talented and dedicated coaches in the near future.
Josh Goldfield has nothing but great things to say about you and your program, and you certainly confirmed all the accolades he has heaped on you.
Thank you, so much, for a great experience. Hope to be able to see and hear from you soon!
Hi Coach Hill,
I hope this finds you well. I would like to thank you for a great camp experience at University of San Diego. It was an awesome two days, full of baseball and organized evaluation. I enjoyed getting to know Coach Keegan as we were able to relate coming from Washington. He is someone that made the camp experience positive. If you have any feedback that you can share with me, I would greatly appreciate it.
Happy New Year,
Hey coach Hill,
I just wanted to say thank you for putting on such an awesome camp. Probably the most fun I’ve had at any kind of camp or showcase type event. Great environment, unbelievable field, fun coaches, and sound structure made for a fun camp. Keep doing what you’re doing. Thank you for the blunt talk with me after and I will continue to work even harder at my craft. I look forward to further communication with you. I’ll see you over the MLK weekend with Bishop Gorman. Happy New Years.
Hello Coach Hill,
I had an amazing time at the prospect camp. I thought it was very well run considering the conditions we had and was very informative and well structured. I really respect and enjoy your coaching style and knowledge of the game. Thank you so much for the opportunity to display my skill set, and I look forward to see you in the future
Dear Coach Hill,
I had a very fun and amazing experience at USD’s Winter Prospect Camp. The two days were filled with tons of baseball and chances to showcase my skills. The games allowed me to show my potential on the mound and with the bat. In addition, the games were also well organized and put together so each player got an equal opportunity to play in front of the coaches and staff at USD. The coach pitch scrimmages between the games allowed me to get many reps with swings, flyballs, and ground balls in game situations. The 60 yard dash also allowed me to present my speed, in batting practice I was also able to exhibit my mechanics and swing to the USD coaches as well. As a whole, the camp was great and I had a fun time playing in front of the USD baseball coaches and being able to play on USD’s facility was incredible and I also left with much more knowledge and I learned a lot of new skills with fielding my position as a pitcher. I would like to thank Coach Hill and the rest of the Torero Coaching Staff for putting together this camp and experience for not just me but for all of the other players interested in playing at the Division 1 level and my interest in USD and becoming a Torero grew tremendously after attending this camp.
Thank you again,
Hello Coach Hill it’s Mason Marquez I had an amazing experience at your camp on Sunday and I would just like to thank you for having me. It was really fun!
My name is Chris Bainer and my son is Jalen Bainer. I wanted to thank you and all the coaches for a great experience yesterday. Jalen had a great time and I know it surpassed his expectations. He is only a freshman, and to be honest, he was a little worried that he would not compete with older kids. I was really happy to see his confidence rise as the day went on and how much fun he had.
Great day, great coaches, and great experience.
Thanks again. Hope to see you again.
Dear Coach Hill –
Thank you for giving me a great time at the camp yesterday, I really enjoyed showing you what I can do even though I am still only a freshman.
Coach Rich Hill and his staff do a great job of making everyone feel welcomed and valued, from the moment you arrive, to the minute you leave. The camp is very positive, encouraging and productive. The players get a great work out, redeeming each minute, and each individual player gets specifically looked at with important and specific evaluation and positive feedback. This kind of camp helps players gain perspective towards achieving their personal goals to enhance needed improvement, in order to get to the next level. All the coaches at this camp seize each teaching opportunity to bring out the best in each player. The Torero camp provides a professional and serious collegiate scouting ambiance. The experience is certainly worth every penny. Players that experience these types of camps, cherish the memory for life! I highly recommend this excellent camp and expert staff. I played College baseball and have coached and I know a good camp when I see one. And above all, if you are attending as a parent, family or friend, it’s a beautiful location and stadium to enjoy the scenery and watch an exciting college directed, professional style, baseball workout. You won’t be disappointed!
Dear Coach Hill,
Thank you for the great camp on Saturday, I had a lot of fun playing baseball under the lights at your school.
Thanks Coach Hill. It was a great experience for my son. We appreciate the opportunity and look forward to the next one.
Danny “Yuma” had a great learning experience, and had a blast, at your USD camp! His passion is learning and playing ball. Your camp provided that under your leadership, THANK YOU! It was worth the trip from Yuma. This morning he is playing with team California in the CA World Series upper class-man tournament in Irvine. If you need Danny he is available! Have a blessed day!
Hey Coach Hill,
Thank you for putting on this camp and inviting me to it. I feel as if I improved as a player and it was a really good experience. I look forward to keeping in contact with you throughout my fall and spring season. Thank you again
Thank you for the invite to the camp this last Saturday! Such a great experience, I appreciate you telling me to come out. Hope to hear back from you or your staff in the future!
