“Ducks baseball clinics are a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity,” says president/general manager Michael Pfaff. “To learn from Ducks players and coaches is an invaluable experience for any aspiring ballplayer.”

The first clinic session will take place on Friday, July 20 and Saturday, July 21, while session two will begin on Friday, August 10 and end on Saturday, August 11. Each camp day runs from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m., and campers should arrive no later than 8:45 a.m. each day.

Clinics are open to children between the ages of seven and 14.  For just $195, campers get two days of instruction, lunch each day of the camp, an equipment bag and a Ducks Baseball Clinic jersey. Just bring your glove and a bat and be ready to play, rain or shine!

The baseball clinics have been extremely popular among players and parents each season. Check out what a few parents from the 2011 Ducks camps have said:
