The weather was perfect and the turnout was great for the 2012 Paonia Youth Baseball/Softball Camp.
A total of 18 boys and girls from kindergarten through 8th grade came out for the camp, which was held April 9-11 at Volunteer Park and was sponsored by the Paonia Baseball Program.
Considering that schools were out on spring break, "That's a good number," said Paonia head coach Drew Potter. Several members of the Paonia Eagles baseball team volunteered to coach at the camp, which focused on fundamental skills such as throwing, catching, base-running, fielding and pitching.
The camp was also a good way for younger players to get to know some of the high school players, including Michael Wilmore, McCabe Taylor, Justin Manupella, Kyle Manupella, Jared Burge, Jacob Leon and Tyler Kendall. blog comments powered by Disqus
