During last year’s first Seymour Baseball Club pitching camp, local youth learned from instructors who pitched at a variety of levels, from high school to major league.
While planning this year’s camp, something entered the minds of Seymour High School coaches Jeremy Richey and D.J. Henkle.
“We went through five catchers at the varsity level last year, and they struggled due to injuries and things like that,” Henkle said. “So we thought, ‘We have 40-some kids in our program, and we don’t have that many catchers.’ We thought we need to try to work with some of our younger kids and start developing catchers at a younger age so that way, we don’t get that problem when they get up to us at the high school level.”
