PORTSMOUTH, Ohio (Baseball) – Shawnee State University Head Baseball Coach Chris Moore is pleased to announce Sunday, Dec. 28, as the date for the Seventh Annual Winter Prospect Showcase. The showcase will be held at the James A. Rhodes Athletic Center in Portsmouth, Ohio, and will be conducted by the SSU coaching staff directly.
Camp will consist of a pro-style workout along with a short intro to the baseball program. Cost for the camp is $30 for individual players and is open to all players ages 15-21. Camp will be done differently this winter than in past years due to the popularity of our last camp at SSU. The number of athletes will be capped at 40.
If the number of interested players exceeds that number, another session will be opened on the same date for later that afternoon. Again, the second session would be capped at 40 players. This will allow the coaching staff to continue to give in-depth evaluations to the players in attendance.
More details for camp as well as registration can be found at shawneestatebaseballcamps.com. The Bears are coming off an historic five year stretch that has seen the Bears accumulate 162 victories, two conference championships, and one NAIA Regional appearance.
In those five years, the team has been to the conference championship game three times while averaging more than 32 wins per season. Camps at Shawnee State have proven to be a successful recruiting tool for the program as at least one player has signed to play at Shawnee State from every single camp hosted by the current staff.
There are 13 players on the current roster that have attended camp in the past. Registration on Dec. 28 begins at 8 a.m. and camp starts at 9 a.m.
