Last year, Jay Bruce held a two-day baseball camp for kids that, by all accounts, was a rousing success. Bruce is doing it again this year, for kids ages 6-14. All the details are below the fold, or you can check out the camp’s website here.

An added benefit: if you go, there’s a good chance to can meet me and my six year-old son, Casey. How’s that for an offer you can’t refuse?*

*No, I’m not getting any benefit out of promoting the camp here…though now that I think of it, shouldn’t they let my son attend for free? (Actually, I heard really good things about last year’s camp, and Bruce’s hands-on involvement with it, so I’m looking forward to taking part.)

CINCINNATI, OHIO – Cincinnati Reds Star Outfielder Jay Bruce announces details for his second annual youth baseball camp. The Jay Bruce Baseball Camp presented by CBTS and Fifth Third Bank in partnership with the Cincinnati Reds Hall of Fame and Museum is scheduled for July 25-26 at Prasco Park from 8:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m.

Once again, Jay will be on site for both days to direct the activities of the camp and provide instruction. The camp features several of the top prep and collegiate coaches from the Cincinnati area and is open to boys and girls ages 6 to 14.

Campers experience various stations, specializing in fundamental skills and the team concept of baseball. Individual groups are small to assure each camper gets maximum personalized instruction.

Campers receive an autographed camp team photo with Jay, a camp T-shirt, camp goodie bag and the opportunity to win additional contests and prizes. The cost of the camp is $174.

Additional camp partners include Fox Sports Ohio.

Campers are encouraged to register early, as spots are limited.
