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.
