Cleveland, OH - The Cleveland Indians will debut a unique new summer camp option in July as part of the Indians Youth Baseball program. The 'Progressive Field of Dreams Camp' will offer children ages 6-14 the opportunity to develop their baseball skills at the club's Major League facilities during a three-day session this summer.
The 'Progressive Field of Dreams Camp' will take place on July 16, 17, and 19 with sessions running from 10:00AM to 12:30PM each day. Campers will participate in drills on the diamond at Progressive Field, as well as the team's bullpen and indoor batting cages, while also getting a tour of the Visitors' Clubhouse.
All participants will receive an Indians flex-fit hat, T-shirt and a free on-field photo, as well as a report card with feedback and tips for improvement following the camp. The camp will cost $249 for the session, with registration available online at Indians.com/YouthBaseball.
Campers also will receive a voucher for two tickets to participate in our special Indians Youth Baseball Day at Progressive Field on September 21. The event includes a parade around the field before the Indians game against the Houston Astros, and participants may have the chance to interact with Indians players and coaches.
