Flinging Right into Summer: Angelina College Baseball Offering Summer Youth Camp


Angelina College baseball coaches are offering a three-day summer camp for young players ages 6-12 beginning Monday, June 5, and running through Wednesday, June 7 at Poland Field on the Angelina College campus. Camp times will run from 9 a.m. until 12 p.m. The cost for the three days is $110.

The camp is designed to teach young players the fundamentals, drills, and skills of the game while emphasizing the “fun” in “fundamentals.” Skills upon which the camp will focus include fielding, throwing, hitting, base running, sliding, and pitching.

Campers are instructed to bring their own gloves, cleats, pants, bats, helmets, and “whatever you normally bring to a baseball game.”

Instructors for the camp include Roadrunner head coach Jeff Livin, who just completed his 27th season while surpassing 800 wins as AC’s skipper. Livin’s program has helped more than 40 players on their way to the major league draft – including several former players currently serving on major league rosters.

Joining Livin will be AC assistant baseball coach Seth Spivey, who after his own career as a Roadrunner was drafted by the Texas Rangers. Spivey spent five years with the organization before embarking on his coaching career.

In addition, this year all athletics camps can be combined with a half day of Camp Roadrunner’s Recreation Camps at AC.

Registration information is located at www.angelina.edu/camproadrunner. There are links provided for each athletics camp, along with the Camp Roadrunner Recreation camps.

If parents or family members have any questions regarding the youth camp, please contact Fanny Luna at fluna@angelina.edu or 936-633-5321. Available discounts are listed on the registration links.

For further information on the baseball camp, contact Coach Jeff Livin at jlivin@angelina.edu.
