JONESBORO, Ark. (6/29/20) – The Arkansas State baseball program announced Monday that all Youth Day Camps and Junior High League Camps remain set as scheduled and are currently accepting registration, but the Tommy Raffo High School Prospect Camps have been canceled due to an extension of the NCAA’s recruiting dead period.
Youth Day Camp sessions for ages 7-11 held July 6-9. There will be a second set of Youth Day Camp sessions July 13-16, while the third Youth Day Camp sessions are scheduled for July 20-23. The final Youth Day Camp sessions will be conducted July 27-30. Each Youth Camp session will run from 9:00 a.m. until noon and cost is $175 per camper.
New in 2020 will be two summer Junior High League Camps for upcoming 2024 and 2025 graduates (last year’s 7th and 8th graders). These camps will run from 6:30 – 9:00 p.m. each evening and cost $225 per camper. The cost will cover six days of drill instruction time and camp participation. The first junior high camp will take place July 6-9, 13-14 and 16, while the second set is slated for July 20-21, 23, 27-28 and 30.
Raffo, along with assistant coaches Rick Guarno, Rowdy Hardy, and Drew LaBounty will be instructing at the camps. Campers must bring their own hat, glove, helmet, bat, and suitable baseball attire. Catchers should bring their own catching gear.
All camps will be held at Tomlinson Stadium – Kell Field, home of A-State baseball and located on the campus of Arkansas State University at the intersection of Aggie Rd. and Stadium Blvd., near First National Bank Arena.
Every camp is designed to provide players with instruction from the staff and current players in all areas of baseball. Campers will experience a variety of drill instruction and game participation that will build and maintain successful offensive and defensive fundamental skills.
