Cobras head baseball coach Shane Todd said the campers, which ranged in age from 6 to 13, braved the hottest temperatures of the early summer and had a great time.
“We had a great group of kids with even numbers in ages across the board and I think they had a great time,” Todd said. “It was great to see some of our current and former players out there helping teach the game of baseball and the kids responded well to our guys.”
Each day, camp began with a stretching session as members of the Cane Bay program demonstrated warm-up exercises. After a throwing session, campers were placed in their preferred defensive positions, one each day, and were taught basic fundamentals of the position. After defensive work, the groups worked in hitting and base-running stations.
The final half hour of each day allowed the players to separate into teams, within their age groups, for scrimmages. 
On Thursday, the final day, each age group participated in skills contests, which included a home run derby, long-tossing and base-running contest. At the end of the day, campers were treated to a special “sliding practice” session on a water-soaked plastic mat, which was especially nice on a 95 degree day. Each camper received a camp T-shirt.
Former members of the Cane Bay baseball program that served as instructors include Ty Wilder, Zack Wimmer, Brandon Hall, Bobby Downey and Austin Timm. Current Cobras who assisted included Cody Maw, Tanner Coleman, Trey Burdette and Christian Dutton.
