Blue Jays big leaguers host youth camps at RAP

Honda Super Camp is hosted by the Toronto Blue Jays and co-hosted by the local Victoria HarbourCats

A handful of spots remain for children wanting to learn baseball fundamentals by talented big leaguers, including Hall of Famer Roberto Alomar, Devon White and Lloyd Moseby.

The Honda Super Camp, hosted by the Toronto Blue Jays and co-hosted by the local Victoria HarbourCats, is a great chance for youth age nine to 16 of any skill level to come learn with former Major League Baseball stars.

The camp, sponsored by the Greater Victoria Baseball Association, takes place on July 12 and 13, beginning at 9 a.m. at Sports Traders Diamond at Royal Athletic Park.

It’s the only Vancouver Island stop for the two-day camp this summer. Part of the Blue Jays’ national camp series, it’s open to all local baseball or softball players, both those with BC Baseball and Little League.

In addition to 12-time All Star Alomar, who finished his long career boasting an even .300 average, and White, who won three World Series titles while playing with the Toronto Blue Jays and Florida Marlins, other greats on the field will include a returning Moseby, Tanyon Sturtze, Brian McRae and Homer Bush.
