Dunn Field to Host 8th Annual Matt Burch Summer Youth Baseball Camp

Thursday, January 3, 2013 | Categories:


Elmira, NY- As Dunn Field prepares for its 125th season of baseball in the Twin Tiers, it will play host to the 8th Annual Summer Youth Baseball Camp for baseball players between the ages of 5 and 13. Pioneers head coach Matt Burch and Matt Burch Championship Baseball will host the camp at Dunn Field for the first time since 2008.


The camp is scheduled for June 24th-26th with the sessions beginning at 9:00 am each day and ending at 12:00 pm. The camp will provide area youth with the opportunity to improve their baseball skills. The price of three-day camp will be $75.00 per camper, while a discount of $5.00 will be available for each additional sibling (after the full fee for the first sibling is paid). A group rate will also be offered for families that have three or more campers participating for $60.00 per player.


Joining Burch, on his staff of camp instructors, will be several players from the 2013 Pioneers team. The former standout from Thomas A. Edison High School played professional baseball for seven years after the Kansas City Royals selected him as the organization’s first round pick in 1998. Burch started Matt Burch Championship Baseball in 2005 to provide baseball instruction for players of all ages to maximize their baseball abilities.
