Angelina College Baseball Holding Evaluation Camp


Session for Prospective Players Taking Place in December

The Angelina College Roadrunner baseball program has established itself as a pipeline for players seeking to advance to the next level, including those at the university levels and the major leagues. With numerous former Roadrunners having earned their way to the next level – including Major League Baseball’s ranks – AC Baseball has long been a proven source of locating and developing young talent who launched their careers from the diamonds at Angelina College.

In an effort to find more future Roadrunners, the AC baseball team will hold an evaluation camp for prospective players ages 16 and older in December. The session will take place at 10 a.m. on Sunday, Dec. 10 at Poland Field on the Angelina College campus.

The fee for each camp is $40.00. Participants should pre-register for the session by visiting the following link:

Walk-up registration will be available at the gate on the day of the camp by credit card only – no cash transactions will take place.

The camps will focus on skill evaluation only. There will be no game. Staff will grade on running, arm strength, fielding, hitting, and power. Pitchers will throw brief bullpens in order to grade pitches and velocity.
