Coast to Coast baseball tryout and hitting camp

Coast to Coast baseball is inviting local baseball players ages 10-18 to an upcoming tryout.

Players will be evaluated in four skills areas: hitting, fielding, arm strength and speed.

Since the summer of 2001, over 2000 athletes (ages 11-12, 13-14, 15-16 and 17-18) from 46 different states have participated in the Coast to Coast baseball program.

Alumni of the program now participated in every level of collegiate ball and professionally.

Players who are accepted to the program may choose to represent the USA in competition in Puerto Rico, or work with top college coaches and pro scouts at on of the program's Florida or Arizona camp and showcase events held at a Major League Baseball spring-training complex.

In addition to the tryout, an instructional hitting camp will be held the same day. The goal of the camp is to help players improve hitting fundamentals as well as a mental approach at the plate.

A Minnesota event will be held at Extra Innings (indoor turf facility) in Brooklyn Park, Minn., Sunday, July 31.

Tryout begins at 10 a.m. The hitting camp begins at 2 p.m.
