LOS ANGELES – Baseball players with, or without, Filipino heritage have an opportunity to attend semi-local baseball camps and get trained by coaches and players affiliated with the Philippines National Baseball team. The first of these camps will be held at L.A. Valley College Monday, July 25.
“This will be a great opportunity to gain experience in the game of baseball and have a chance to play with the Philippines National Baseball Program, as we are looking to fill our younger teams to be able to compete,” says Bill Picketts, head coach of the Philippines National Senior Team.
With the goal of recruiting new talent, the Philippine Amateur Baseball Association works hand-in-hand with Los Angeles-based firm, Fil-Am Nation Select, to organize camps, tryouts, and exhibition games to scout the latest Filipino American talents in the United States.
More information on upcoming events for all Filipino-American athletes, including the baseball tryout at L.A. Valley College, can be found by following @philippinesnationalbaseball and @filamnationselect on Instagram.
The camp cost is $200 for ages 9-14 years old, and will take place from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
L.A. Valley College is located at 5800 Fulton Ave., Valley Glenn, CA 91401.
