The 2012 Blue Jays Honda Super Camp heads to Toronto
The ultimate baseball academy experience continues on Thursday, August 30 for approximately 230 participants at Rogers Centre in Toronto, Ontario. This Blue Jays Baseball Academy event in Toronto represents the final Honda Super Camp of the season. Kids aged 10-16 will be learning their skills and techniques from former Toronto Blue Jays alumni and former Major League players such as Homer Bush, Frank Catalanotto, Carlos Delgado, Candy Maldonado, Lloyd Moseby, Duane Ward, Devon White, Denis Boucher, Jesse Barfield, George Bell, Sandy Alomar Sr. and Mookie Wilson. The clinic will run from 8:00 am - 12:00 pm and each participant will receive a Blue Jays hat, t-shirt, instructional manual; photo card, along with a leather pro model Roberto Alomar Series baseball glove.
In conjunction with Honda, Baseball Canada and Little League Canada, the Blue Jays are conducting 14 Honda Super Camps this summer across 10 provinces in July and August as they continue their commitment to amateur baseball. At each Super Camp, the Toronto Blue Jays, through Jays Care Foundation are providing five scholarships for entry fees to help remove financial barriers to participation for children who would not otherwise have the chance to play. In addition, through a partnership with the Boys & Girls Clubs of Canada, Jays Care Foundation has made a grant and a donation of equipment available to start a baseball skills development program with the local Boys and Girls Clubs in each city.
