Due to impending rain, Sunday's Youngstown State Baseball Showcase Camp will be held at the Watson and Tressel Training Site on YSU's campus instead of at Eastwood Field.

The camp will be open to players in grades nine through 12, but eighth graders can be permitted with staff approval. Registration will run from 9-10 a.m., and the camp will go from 10 to approximately 4 p.m. The camp schedule includes stations for batting practice, offensive cage work, throwing drills, defensive drills, scrimmaging and recruiting information. First-year head coach Steve Gillispie will also speak with the attendees on his vision and high expectations for the Penguins program.

Although this is Gillispie's first season at YSU, he has a track record of using camps as a top source for recruiting. While he was at Jacksonville State, as much as 40 percent of the Gamecocks' roster was comprised of former camp attendees.
