Murray State College hosts baseball camp
TISHOMINGO, Oklahoma (KXII) - Several of the area’s best baseball players were in Tishomingo for the Murray State College baseball camp. Players from Sherman, Pottsboro, Silo, Kingston, Calera, and many more made it to the one day event. They also had one a couple of weeks ago. The camp was a chance for players to refine their skills, show their potential to college coaches, and be back on the field again.
“It’s kind of a hard time for high school baseball and softball players,” said Murray State head baseball coach Sam Bjorling. “There’s not as many college spots anymore, their seasons got cut short. These kinds of camps are really important for them if they want to move to the next level and play collegiate ball.”
“A lot of kids aren’t getting reps. A lot of kids are sitting at home doing nothing,” said Silo 1st baseman Delton Roberts. “It’s good to be out here getting reps, much less in front of college coaches and a bunch of people you don’t know, getting to know them. It’s really important.”
