Milwaukee, WI, March 16th, 2015 - Recruit This™ and former Chicago White Sox World Series MVP Jermaine Dye will put on a baseball camp for high school aged athletes June 29th at the Schaumburg Boomers Baseball Stadium.
Jermaine Dye’s Recruit This™ Baseball Camp is designed for athletes to work on position fundamentals and prepare for competition in high school, college and beyond. Campers will get professional training and skills evaluation by current and former MLB players, along with work on the mechanics of hitting and fielding. The camp is open to 8th-12th graders, and is sponsored by the Recruiting Factory, Nike and Easton. Participants will receive a T-shirt, hat and lunch.
In addition to working on skills and fundamentals, athletes will get individual skills video taken. This showcase video will be put on an online recruiting profile which they will be able to send directly to the college coaches they choose.
“Coming back to the city where I won a World Series is special to me. I’ve always considered it a second home,” said Dye.“I'm excited to bring Chicago not just another baseball camp but one specifically designed to help high school athletes get exposure to college coaches. The chance to learn from all these pro athletes is awesome. Even kids who don't plan on playing college ball will have an experience to remember.”
