USM baseball to host Thanksgiving Kids Camp

HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) - Southern Miss baseball has a number of camps and showcases coming up this Thanksgiving.

Head coach Scott Berry and the Golden Eagles host a fall showcase camp on November 19 for high school and junior college players.

For the first time, USM will hold a Thanksgiving Kids camp from November 20-21. Several current Golden Eagles will be there to teach kids the fundamentals of hitting, base running and defense.

Southern Miss has a Winter Showcase camp on January 13, 2018. USM assistant coach B.A. Vollmuth estimates that 70 percent of the baseball roster is filled with Baseball Camp participants.

"I think it's right at 70 percent of guys who are on our team actually have been to our showcases or we found them at our showcases," Vollmuth said. "Six or seven guys that are on this team right now that I can think of since I've been here. We've had a ton of guys that get recognized here. We follow them in the spring and end up offering them a scholarship."
