re­ceived a t-shirt on Wed­nes­day as well.

Sono­rav­ille head base­ball coach Daniel McArthur, as­sis­tant coaches and Phoenix high school play­ers got the op­por­tu­nity to give the younger gen­er­a­tion of play­ers some tips and tricks this week at Phoenix Base­ball Camp. The camp ran Tues­day through Thurs­day from 9 a.m.-12 p.m. each day at the Sono­rav­ille Rec Fields, and each camper re­ceived a t-shirt at the end of camp on Thurs­day.

“Camp went great this week,” said McArthur. “We had 30 campers. Work­ing with the young kids and teach­ing them the game is awe­some and some­thing I re­ally en­joy. I know my­self and the play­ers and coaches had fun, I think the campers did too and hope­fully they learned a lit­tle more about base­ball while they were there.”

Sev­eral more camps through the lo­cal schools and recre­ation de­part­ments are sched­uled to be held over the next few months. For more photos from camps this week, see page 3B.
