SARATOGA SPRINGS — Starting on Saturday, March 14, the Spa Saints will be hosting their 30th Annual Saints Baseball Camp, concluding on March 15. This two-day camp has something to offer for all ages. The children will have access to an all-star local baseball team and their award-winning, NYS Baseball Hall of Fame inductee coaching staff.
Supervised by Alphonse Lambert, head coach of Saints baseball for the last 32 years, and Dale Long, Jr., assistant coach for 12 years, children will have the amazing opportunity to learn from the best.
Saints baseball has won 15 league, five sectional, and three regional championships. This year’s team is looking good!
Ages 5-12 are accepted into this camp and have designated time slots: from 9 a.m. to 10:15 a.m., ages 5-6 will be at camp; 10:45 a.m. to 12:45 p.m. ages 7-8; 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. ages 9-10; and 4:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. for ages 11-12 on both days.
Participants are not required to do both days, but the option is available. Both sessions cost $60 per child or one day is only $30 per child. Pre-registration is suggested due to popularity of the camp. Walk-ins are accepted if there is space on the day.
“These sessions are designed to give each player professional instruction in such vital areas as hitting, pitching, defense, and base running. There will be individual attention paid to each player,” stated in the brochure.
Coach Lambert said this will be a very hands-on clinic where participants will be “working to improve their skills.”
Players must bring baseball hat, glove, and a bat. Attire is shorts or sweats, t-shirt, and sneakers.
