CRESTVIEW — Every summer, about 75 young baseball hopefuls descend upon the Crestview High School baseball complex for the Crestview High School Baseball Camp.

This year's camp, open to boys and girls ages 4-13, is 9 a.m. to noon June 10-12.

The cost of the camp is $75 per child and includes a camp T-shirt, pizza on Wednesday and admission to the Justin Richards Tournament June 13-15.

The Crestview baseball team also will hold a two-day hitting camp 9-11 a.m. June 17 and 18. Cost of the camp is $50 and includes a T-shirt. The camp is for players 4-13.

The baseball camp has run at least 15 years; this will be the second year for the hitting camp, Bulldog head baseball coach Tim Gillis said.

Through the years, several campers have grown up to start and star for the Crestview High baseball team; many players return year after year.

"We had a bunch of guys on the team that came to camp when they were younger this year, so it's fun," Gillis said.
