Four days remain to sign up for Carson-Newman head baseball coach Tom Griffin’s annual elite catching camp from June 21-23.

Griffin has 25 years of coaching experience at the college level. He has been a catching instructor and speaker at various camps and clinics. Griffin is the producer of “Catch It, Block it, Throw It,” an instructional catching video.  In 2007 and 2012, Griffin’s catching coaching skills were on display as the featured speaker at the ABCA Coaches Convention.

“This is an intense catching camp for the serious player,” Griffin said.  “It is designed for high school catchers who want to learn techniques and drills to take them to the next level.”

Griffin will cover techniques in the camp including stances, calling the game, mental aspects, receiving drills, blocking drills, throwing, plays at the plate, bunts, pop-ups and wild pitches.

Registration for the camp begins at 5 p.m. Sunday, June 21 with instruction beginning that day at 6 p.m.

The cost to attend is 150 dollars.
