The BHM Buckeyes 5-Day Virtual Baseball Camp is offered to Players Ages 6-18. Players participating in the Ages 6-12 camp can expect a camp experience focused on basic fundamentals associated with the game. Players participating in the Ages 13-18 camp can expect a camp focused on skills to enhance their game. The camp also includes information such as conditioning segments specific for baseball players and college recruiting topics.
The camp provides players with an opportunity to participate in a 5-day structured baseball camp while staying at home and following the COVID-19 guidelines that are currently in place. This camp is designed for one player or a small group and can take place in a backyard, garage, driveway or field.
Each day of camp has specific drills/techniques associated with playing the game of baseball that are discussed and demonstrated through more than 50 videos. Throughout the week, we build on the previous day’s topics and drills. A list of activities will be provided for each day, along with video demonstrations that enable campers to view and follow along at their own pace while working on a skill or doing a drill.
We also provide the same fun segments that are part of baseball camp such as “Stump the Coach” questions and “Did You Know” information.
Each day also contains a short virtual tour of the Baseball Heritage Museum at Historic League Park, viewing the many objects in the museum’s collection associated with the history of the game.
