Alabama camp

Last week University of Alabama baseball coach Brad Bohannon announced that he and his staff will be hosting four baseball camps during the winter for high school and youth athletes at Alabama’s Sewell-Thomas Stadium.

Those interested in attending any of the camps can sign up at or contact Brock Bennett by phone at (205) 348-4459 or email at

The first camp will be for high school pitchers and catchers on Dec. 9. The camp will be open to high school players grades 9-12, or ages 14-18, from 9 a.m. until 3 p.m. with coaching from the Alabama coaching staff. The cost of the camp is $150 with lunch and a T-shirt included.

The second camp will take place Dec. 21-22 and is for youth players, ages 6-14, and will focus on hitting, fielding, base-running and throwing fundamentals. The camp will take place from 9 a.m. until 3 p.m. on both Dec. 21 and Dec. 22. Cost of the camp is $175 and includes lunch for both days and a T-shirt.

The third camp will be a hitting camp on Jan. 13, 2018 for high school athletes, grades 9-12, focusing on individual drills, group drills and informative sessions on the best approach to pitching and catching. The camp will take place from 9 a.m. until 3 p.m. and the cost is $150 including lunch and a T-shirt.

The final camp will take place on Jan. 14, 2018 and will be a “showcase camp” for high school players, grades 9-12, in which players take part in comprehensive five-tool workouts and position-specific skill instruction in front of the Alabama coaching staff as well as other coaching staffs from around the country.

The camp will take place in two sessions with the first running from 9 a.m. until noon and the second running from 1 until 4 p.m. The cost of the camp is $150 but does not include lunch.
