Youth Baseball Camp offered June 13-16

The Starz of Tomorrow Baseball Academy led by St. Cloud State University head baseball coach, Pat Dolan, his coaching staff and numerous players will be holding its annual summer youth baseball camp June 13-16, at the Waite Park Youth Baseball Complex in Waite Park from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. each day.

The camp will offer an overnight stay option at the GrandStay Hotel in downtown St. Cloud, or you can commute to the camp each day from home. The camp is open to all youth baseball players ages 5 years old to 14 years old.

"We are very excited to get our summer camps going. We had over 1000 participants for our camps and clinics throughout the past year and we expect a great turnout for our summer camp. The group will take in a St. Cloud River Bat game with our own Husky, Joey Benke playing for the Bats," Dolan said.

Players will be separated by age groups and will go through a series of hitting drills and fundamental instruction in every aspect of the game. The players will end each day with a simulated game.

"We will emphasize the most important reason we all play the game, for the FUN of it. We will also stress the fundamentals and incorporate simulated drills. Huskies rookies (ages 5-7) can sign up for half a day session instead of the full day of baseball if they would like," Dolan said.

The 2010 Huskies earned a 41-17 record and a third-place record of 23-9 in the always rugged Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference. SCSU placed second at the 2010 NCAA Division II Central Regional tournament in Farmington, New Mexico and were ranked as high as #13 in the country. This marked the Huskies' first trip to the NCAA tournament since 1991, and the 41 victories in 2010 set a new team record for most victories in a season. In just three years Dolan and the Huskies have won 104 games.
