"I applaud the NCAA and Coca-Cola for sponsoring this camp during the College World Series," said Ed Servais, Creighton University head baseball coach. "The camp is able to attract youth and families that may not always be able to attend camps. It also provides solid skill development with a special focus on the joy of playing baseball not only for the youth, but their parents, too."
The clinic will be at the Creighton University baseball and softball fields and the Kitty Gaughan Pavilion, a 15,000-square-foot indoor complex with batting cages, locker rooms and training facilities.
