NASSAU, BAHAMAS, February 03, 2010 -- Your Last Shot and The Bahamas Baseball Federation hosted a four day Baseball camp in Nassau, The Bahamas from January 28- February 1, 2010. Daily clinics were organized for instruction on offensive and defensive baseball positions; pitching, running, bunting, and play strategies; as well as on-going practice drills and games through-out the four days. The camp was sponsored by Microsoft, Indusa Global, and Cogentes.
Coaches for the Camp included Shane Monahan, a Scout with the San Diego Padres and a former MLB player with the Seattle Mariners; Sean O'Connor and John Di Carlo, Scouts with the San Francisco Giants; James Bonnici, a Scout with the Tampa Bay Rays; and Steve Wolf, President of the Boston Baseball league.
The Bahamas Ministry of Education, Youth, Sports, and Culture and the Ministry of Tourism provided tremendous support and resources in organizing and facilitating the camp.
Theodore Sweeting, Secretary General of The Bahamas Baseball Federation states, "This is a once in a lifetime opportunity for young Bahamian baseball players to work with scouts and coaches from professional baseball teams. It could not have been possible without the strong support and sponsorship provided by Your Last Shot, Microsoft; Indusa Global; Cogentes; the coaches (Shane Monahan, Sean O'Connor, John Di Carlo, James Bonnici, and Steve Wolf); the Ministry of Education, Youth, Sports, and Culture; and the Ministry of Tourism."
