MEDFORD, Ore. — Former major and minor league baseball players are making a pit stop in Medford to host a camp for kids.
Bob Oliver, a former Kansas City Royals player, is one of the trainers. His son still plays major league baseball for the Toronto Blue Jays. Clint Brill, a professional minor league player for the Atlanta Braves, is also at the camp.
The coaches say the camp is for kids aged 7 to 15-years-old. Players will learn the basics of baseball. Currently, there are about 35 kids signed up.
“It’s a great instruction camp for the information about the game, and the fundamentals. They’re great teachers and they know how to relate to this age level,” says head coach, Chris Wolf.
“They didn’t have this when I came along, and we’re here and we’re willing to teach these kids so all you guys sitting at home playing the Nitendo, come out to the baseball camp, ” says Bob Oliver.
The Southern Oregon River Dawgs are hosting the event. For more information on how to sign up for the final couple days, click here.
