The Outfield Specialty Camp is a great and exciting way to learn about the specifics of becoming a next level outfielder.
The UTPA staff, along with outfield coach Andrew Carson, will provide instruction using creative yet essential practices that will improve the player's ability to make in game actions and decisions.
Outfielders will be taught the specific skills of groundball/fly ball mechanics using various footwork skills on groundball angles and fly ball trajectories. Additionally, the player will learn the proper throwing and footwork mechanics that can be used in various cutoff, relay, and assist situations. As part of the Outfield Specialty Camp, the player will have an opportunity to learn a valuable outfield communication system, a mental pre-pitch checklist, and an outfield conditioning sequence that will help improve their individual defense as well as their overall team defense.
$35.00 per session or $75.00 for all 3 sessions.
The purpose of our camp is to make every individual a better ball player. We successfully accomplish this by
building on strengths as well as recognizing and improving areas of weakness.
Please come dressed in practice attire with tennis shoes, baseball shoes and glove.
All camps at the Manny Mantrana Baseball Academy are staffed with current Broncs coaches and players. We feel that working with people associated directly with our program helps the camper get a firm grasp on the principles and techniques taught to Broncs baseball players. On occasion, former Broncs players will join the camp as guest instructors.
The camper will have access to the same facilities as the UTPA players; Edinburg Baseball Stadium, Home of the Broncs.
