SOUTH HOLLAND, Ill. (December 11, 2018) – South Suburban College Head Baseball Coach Steve Ruzich will be directing a two-day Catching Camp on Wednesday, December 26, and Thursday, December 27, from 10:00am–1:00pm. Ruzich has directed youth camps for the past 33 years and has taught baseball skills at many other baseball camps throughout the state.

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, Bulldog 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 glove and gear. All participants should wear baseball or sweat pants and gym shoes, and boys must wear cups.

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

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. Ruzich had a short stint as a pro catcher before coming to SSC as Head Baseball Coach in 1987, where he has compiled a winning record of 1150-673.
