Home Run Baseball runs a camp at the Parade Grounds in Prospect Park. Both beginners and experienced ball players are welcome and will be challenged, encouraged and instructed. Campers can expect a safe, fun and instructive environment featuring two games a day. Our staff, comprised mostly of camp alums, make sure every player age 4 to 12 gets at least 100 swings in batting practice per day. Our top priority: Safety. We want every player working on volume repetition- which simply means teach the skill then get round after round of ground balls, fly balls or batting practice. In a typical day, campers can expect a minimum of 75 to 100 ground balls and fly balls. Most camps over teach and under volume. Our approach takes more coaches and equipment, but we feel its the best way. We feature two games per day and we group by age not ability. This develops peer leaders and allows for baseball and social growth with teammates the same age.
- Campers ages 4, 5 and 6 hit off live underhand pitching , not tee ball.
- Campers move around on defense during the day.
- Full pitching bullpens all day for any camper who wants to polish his technique and learn new skills.
- Batting station with both live and machine batting practice. Overseen by college players, campers can spend as much time hitting as they like during camp.
- We ask our 11 and 12 year old campers to fan out to the groups and help coach the younger campers for the first hour of camp.
