East Lincoln Summer Baseball Camp
The East Lincoln Mustangs will be holding a baseball camp beginning today, June 17, through June 20. The camp will be divided into four age groups, 6-7, 8-9, 10-12, 13 and up. The camps goals under the direction of head baseball coach Chris Matile are to help all campers learn the fundamentals of the game and improve their overall playing abilities while most importantly, having fun. In addition to Coach Matile, campers will be instructed by assistant coaches and current Mustang players. All participants should wear baseball pants, a t-shirt and a hat, and should bring their glove, a water bottle, sunscreen and tennis shoes (for inclement weather). Catchers need to bring their own gear. Campers should also bring a snack. The camp will take place at the East Lincoln High School baseball field, and the cost is $90. The camp will run each day from 9 a.m. until 12:30 p.m. For more information, contact Chris Matile at East Lincoln High School.
