Summer days teaching boys and girls the right way to play baseball.
Pros: teaching the game of baseball
Cons: being in the heat 8 hours a day.
A typical day at work involved getting to the baseball field between 7-8 to make sure the field was prepped and ready to play as the kids began to file in. Once all the LuDawg's (campers) were there, we began our stretching and baseball routines. As fellow baseball players of California Lutheran University we coached kids from the ages of 4-15 the rules and techniques of the game. This included throwing, hitting, fielding, pitching, catching, base running, etc.
The hardest part of the job depended on the amount of kids the camp had that week and the number of coaches/players that were able to work the camps. Some weeks there were 75 kids and only 6 coaches. This made it hard to keep the younger kids in control and focused for a whole day (8-4). The most enjoyable part of the job was teaching kids that look up to you the game that you love to play. I have a real passion for baseball and teaching the game comes easy to me.
