All campers receive a ASU Baseball Camp T-shirt!
Detailed Camp Description
Pitchers will be put through college style workouts that emphasize mechanics and velocity. They will also be given an in-depth pitcher specific strength and conditioning program designed to improve all facets of pitching. It is the same program that has led the that Coach Melendez team's have used over the last decade and helped them lead in nearly every major pitching statistic over the last 10 years. Furthermore, Melendez has also seen 4 pitchers selected in the major league baseball draft in the last three seasons.
Infielders and outfielders will be taken through rigorous instruction that focuses on quality reps to improve the fundamentals of fielding. Each player will be broken down defensively and built back up with the proper technique and fundamentals.
Each hitter will receive one on one instruction with coaches to improve their swing mechanics and approach at the plate. Hitters will learn the philosophy that has made Coach Melendez hitter's so successful in recent years with a school record 90 home runs and a team batting average over .340 in 2010.
At the end of each day players will be put through a strength and conditioning workout designed to improve speed, flexibility, core strength, and injury prevention.
