SEMO ROUNDUP: Redhawks baseball team set to host prospect camp for high school athletes
The Southeast Missouri State baseball team will hold a prospect camp on Aug. 12 for high school athletes.
The cost of the camp is $125 per camper, and a SEMO baseball camp Dri-Fit shirt is included in the cost. A $20 discount for Southeast employees is available by using the promo code "employee" at checkout along with a valid SEMO ID number.
Players will be able to interact and receive instruction from the Redhawks' coaching staff and student-athletes. Instruction and evaluation features a 60-yard dash, defense, hitting and pitching. A scrimmage will also take place (weather pending) and will be scripted based on the number of pitchers and hitters. Pitchers and hitters will receive ample opportunities to showcase their skills.
Campers are required to bring their own equipment (glove, bat, running/turf shoes with no metal spikes, hat and any other equipment deemed necessary to participate). Catchers must also provide their own gear.
There will be no meals provided at the camp, but water will be available. Campers are encouraged to bring along their own water bottles and/or cooler of drinks.
Wright adds another postseason honor
Second baseman Danny Wright was named a National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association Second Team Freshman All-American on Monday.
The rookie infielder was named a Freshman All-American last week by Collegiate Baseball Newspaper.
The NCBWA list features a total of 31 freshmen divided into two teams and is voted on by the membership of the organization.
Wright addes the two All-American honors to his list of Ohio Valley Conference All-Freshman Team and All-Tournament Team honors from 2017.
The Ohio Valley Conference was also represented on the second team by catcher Parker Phillips of Austin Peay and third baseman Davis Simms of Murray State.
