Five-week pitcher/catcher progression baseball

Tuesday, October 29, 2013

HFCC will sponsor a Pitcher & Catcher Progression Baseball Camp, which runs from Sunday, Nov. 10, until Sunday, Feb. 24, 2014 at the HFCC Athletic Memorial Building on the main campus.

“The camp is open to everyone. The purpose is to help elementary, middle, and high school students learn the art of pitching and catching. Rather than go to a one-day camp, this is a progression camp, which is better from a reference standpoint because it grants participants the opportunity to retain and work on their skills. They receive more individualized attention this way, which benefits them greatly. We’re certainly excited about this,” said Steven Brown, head coach of the HFCC Baseball Team.

The camp dates are on the following Sundays:

  • Nov. 17;
  • Dec. 1;
  • Dec. 8;
  • Dec. 15;
  • Jan. 12, 2014;
  • Jan. 19, 2014;
  • Jan. 26, 2014;
  • Feb. 2, 2014;
  • Feb. 9, 2014;
  • Feb. 16, 2014; and
  • Feb. 23, 2014.

Participants, ages 6 to 12, will participate from 1 to 2 p.m. Players ages 13 and older will participate from 2 to 3 p.m. Parking is available in parking lots I and J.

The cost of the progression baseball camp is $30 for each session per player. Five pitching sessions cost $100. Five catching sessions also cost $100. The money will benefit the HFCC Baseball Team. Checks should be made out to Brown.

Participants will need to fill out a form, which is available from Brown. For further information, contact Brown at 313.657.3200 or via email at
