Participants are being sought for Belle Plaine native Tim Huber’s annual All-Star Little League and Advanced Baseball camps.
The Little League Camp for ages 7-11 is set for June 13-14 (Tuesday and Wednesday) from 8:30 a.m. to noon. It will take place at the little league fields behind Chatfield Elementary School. The cost is $75.
The camp will focus on the basic fundamentals and players will participate in games and contests each day.
The Advanced Camp for ages 12 and up will be held June 13-14 (Tuesday and Wednesday) from 1-5 p.m. at Tiger Park. The cost is $75. This camp will instruct on all aspects of baseball, including fielding, throwing, pitching, base running and hitting, the latter of which will be the primary focus.
Huber, who played college baseball at Minnesota State University Mankato, is head coach at Augustana College in Sioux Falls, S.D. In eight seasons as head baseball coach, Huber is at the top of the wins chart in Augustana University history. His teams have posted seven consecutive 30-win seasons. The last four years the program has been even more impressive, averaging 38 wins per year. Augustana players and teams have broken over 90 school records since Huber has taken over the Viking program.
In addition to a lot of team success, Huber has helped develop some of the best talent in all of Division II baseball. Another player was drafted in last year’s MLB draft (Cleveland Indians). That brings the total to 13 former players from just the last six seasons to have gone on to play professional baseball (four MLB draft picks).
Belle Plaine camp staff will also include Augustana assistant coach Mark Moriarty, BPHS head baseball coach Pat Schultz, former BPHS and Rochester Community/Technical College baseball player Dan Huber as well as current and former Augustana players.
