PRCC Wildcat Baseball - 2014 High School Fall League
Begins - Tuesday, October 14th @ 5:00
The Fall League Camp is designed for kids in grades 9 through 12 who truly want to improve their level of play. Players are divided into “teams” for instruction and games. The league runs for 5 weeks with 2 games per week. There will be a 1 day instructional “showcase” prior to league play (October 14th @ 5:00pm). Professional & college scouts will be invited for the evaluation. The Fall League will be divided into divisions by grades depending on the number of participants. Major emphasis is placed on improvement through fundamentals and playing in game situations. Winning or losing the “games” is not the main objective. Participants may request to be on the same “team”.
