Several of south Louisiana’s best-known baseball names will band together for three winter youth baseball camps during the first weekend of January.
The group, many of them former standouts at LSU and Louisiana-Lafayette who have moved on to the professional ranks, will hold one-day camps in the Lafayette, New Orleans and Baton Rouge areas Jan. 1-3. The camps will run from noon-4:30 p.m. and are open players ages 6-18.
“We want to give young players the chance to learn from a group of guys that have been successful in making it to the professional baseball ranks,” said former Ragin’ Cajun standout Jace Conrad, who will be part of the camp staff. “These guys are all from different organizations and played at several different colleges, so they have a wide range of knowledge and backgrounds.”
The Lafayette camp is Jan. 1 at UL-Lafayette’s Tigue Moore Field, followed by the New Orleans area camp Jan. 2 at St. Paul’s High School in Covington and the Baton Rouge camp Jan. 3 at Traction Sports. Campers are urged to register before Dec. 15 to receive a discount on camp fee.
The camp staff includes former Cajuns Conrad (Tampa Bay Rays), Blake Trahan (Cincinnati Reds), Austin Robichaux and Caleb Adams (both Los Angeles Angels); ex-LSU standouts Alex Bregman (Houston Astros), Kade Scivicque (Detroit Tigers), Andrew Stevenson (Washington Nationals), Zac Person (Houston Astros), Ryan Theriot (Chicago Cubs), Jason Columbus (San Francisco Giants) and Conner Hale (Seattle Mariners).
