Celebrating 27 years, SHC’s Hall of Fame Baseball Academy gives aspiring baseball players a chance to learn the game from a top adult coaching staff. Members of the Academy coaching staff will lecture and demonstrate the instructional phase of the camp. Personalized coaching will include hitting, pitching, infield and outfield, throwing, base running, sliding, bunting, run-downs, and cut-offs. The program is designed to give each athlete individual instruction and attention. Skills will be sharpened and improved. Each athlete will participate in small groups and will spend several hours on the field each day.

SHC boasts an athletic tradition that has sent two men to the Baseball Hall of Fame (Joe Cronin '24 and Harry Heilman '12). Over 150 Fightin' Irish players have gone on to play at the college level and 18 have signed professional contracts in the last 25 years. Join a winning tradition this summer by learning the basics from our esteemed coaching staff.
