CAMP BATS & BALLS
Project Chairs: Rachel Walker & Caroline Forks
Asst. Chairs: Adrienne McDill & Mary Frances Youngblood
Our 21st year of Camp Bats & Balls might have been the most fun yet! We had a record number of campers attend our morning camp with the NATIONAL CHAMPS - the Ole Miss Baseball team! We practiced grounding balls, base running, got to hit in the cages at Swayze, and even take pictures with the championship trophy. Special thanks to Coach Mike Bianco and the Ole Miss Baseball team for making this project happen every year.
This project is typically a half-day baseball skills camp for boys in 3rd & 4th grades. Camp Bats and Balls lets Junior Auxiliary of Oxford partner with the Ole Miss Baseball team at the Manning Center. The boys have the opportunity to experience a sports camp as they rotate through stations led by the team. The boys also receive an autographed photo, lunch donated by area restaurateurs, and a t-shirt.
Thank you Phi Kappa Psi for sponsoring this project!
