Transitioning to the Big Field baseball camp is Aug. 6-10 at Bentley Field

CUMBERLAND – The Cumberland Parks & Recreation Department’s annual “Transitioning to the Big Field” baseball camp will take place Aug. 6-10 at Bentley Field.

The camp will introduce and reinforce baseball fundamentals that are required to transition from Little League to regulation-sized fields. Camp attendees will be put into game situations, and “teaching” scrimmages will be used. Among the items that will be covered are baserunning, stealing, throwing, fielding, pitching, situational hitting, and bunting.

The camp will be in session each day from 9 a.m. to noon, and the cost is $125 and includes a camp T-shirt. The clinicians will be coaches from Cumberland High and the North Cumberland and McCourt Middle Schools, and players from all three teams will serve as coaching mentors.

Visit the Cumberland Recreation Department during business hours at 4097 Diamond Hill Road or call 401-334-9996 to register or for more information.
