This clinic will provide catching instruction in the areas of blocking, calling a game, pick-offs, pop throwing times, stance and footwork, drills for practice, pop-ups, handling pitchers, and conditioning. In addition to Ruzich’s instruction, South Suburban College baseball players will be on hand to help and develop skills.

The Catching Camp is open to boys ages 8–18. All players should bring their gloves and gear. All participants should wear baseball or sweat pants and gym shoes, and boys must wear cups.

Coach Ruzich was an All-American catcher at the College of St. Francis. He graduated in 1985 and was drafted by the Chicago White Sox. Coach Ruzich had a short stint as a pro catcher before coming to South Suburban College as Head Baseball Coach in 1987, where he has compiled a winning record of 1112–654.

The cost of the Catching Camp is $100, and checks should be made payable to SSC Bulldog Baseball. Enrollment is limited, so early registration is suggested.
