Many great athletic sports camps are offered at the University of Michigan each summer, and one such camp being offered this year is Rich Maloney’s Comprehensive Baseball Camp, which will run from July 18-21. The camp, which is open to boys ages 9-2010 high school seniors, is a great way to hone baseball skills to prepare players to compete at the next level. It boasts a low camper-to-instructor ratio to insure quality instruction, and places campers into age groups in order to insure the most improvement, challenge, and fun during the camp experience. 4508500175_6bde25720b_b-thumb-200x271-36423

Players will be exposed to the instruction and drills that the University of Michigan uses in the development of college players. With a major emphasis on hitting, players will also receive daily instruction and practice in many other aspects of the game (throwing, baserunning, etc), and will be able to select two areas of specialization which will allow them to get concentrated instruction at favorite positions.

Camp director Rich Maloney is the head coach of the Michigan Wolverines baseball team. He was named the 2007 and 2008 Big Ten and ABCA Mideast Regional Coach of the Year, and has led the Wolverines to three Big Ten titles, two Big Ten Tournament titles, and the 2007 NCAA Regional title. At the end of the 2009 season, he ranked 27th on the list of top 50 active NCAA Division I coaches.
