The 'Boston College Spring Training Prospect Clinic' gives a unique opportunity to further develop your skills and learn new techniques from the entire Boston College baseball staff, as well as other New England College Baseball Coaches.
Through a series of daily drills, each camper will be instructed as though they were an Eagle baseball player themselves. The coaching staff will stress the importance of basic fundamentals, while playing in a fast-paced environment.
Our camp focuses on helping each camper reach their full potential as a baseball player. This clinic will also allow campers to showcase their talent for all the coaches in attendance.

The Bubble (pictured above) is the finest indoor baseball facility in the Northeast. It covers the entire football field in Alumni Stadium and allows our players and campers to continue to develop their skills throughout the cold New England winter. Inside, there are four batting cages and room for two regulation-size diamonds, as well as a bullpen and skill development area.
"It's a great facility for your kids to learn valuable skills and get a head start on the season - no other facility in the Northeast comes close!"
- Mike Gambino, BC Head Coach

We will provide a shirt for each camper but they are short sleeve. Baseball pants are not necessary. Each camper should provide their own bat (wood or BBCOR) and catchers gear (if necessary). All other equipment including helmets will be provided. Players are NOT permitted to wear metal baseball cleats of any kind on the turf. Rubber soul baseball turfs, modeled rubber cleats and other athletic footwear are permitted.
