The Durham Bulls hosted 114 kids for one of their popular summer baseball camps on June 19-21. The first of three camps this season, Bulls Manager Bill Evers teamed up with fellow Bulls coaches and players to teach the group of 7-14 year olds about the game.
The children attended the camp from 9:00am-2:00pm each day, learning skills such as hitting, running and pitching in the morning and putting those lessons to work in actual games in the afternoons. They enjoyed a bag lunch everyday and got a break at 1:40pm each afternoon to go to dugouts for autographs from the Durham Bulls.
“Kids really enjoy it. They love every second it,” said Bulls Administrative Asst. Libby Hamilton. “It’s a big deal to them to be on the field with coaches & players.” The Bulls players and coaches themselves help the kids learn new skills and hone the ones they already have.
On the last day of camp, the staff presented a Most Valuable Player Award, a Hustle Award and a Team Spirit Award for each age group. Every kid received camp t-shirt and other Bulls
