Blue Jays return to Victoria for skills camp

Some of the greatest players to ever suit up for the Toronto Blue Jays returning to RAP

Some of the greatest players to ever suit up for the Toronto Blue Jays will be teaching at a two-day baseball skills camp in Victoria this summer.

The Victoria HarbourCats and the Greater Victoria Baseball Association team up with the Blue Jays for the Honda Super Camp, slated for July 12-13 at Royal Athletic Park.

Former Blue Jays greats outfielder Devon White, second baseman Roberto Alomar, outfielder Brian McRae, second baseman Homer Bush and pitcher Tanyon Sturtze are expected to attend.

“Victoria had one of the best showings a year ago for participation in these great camps, held nationwide by the Blue Jays, and we’re very glad to have the Blue Jays returning to Victoria for 2015,” said HarbourCats general manager Jim Swanson.

Registration for the camps is online, and more information is available through the Blue Jays website bluejays.com/camps.
