The D-backs Baseball Academy, presented by Grand Canyon University, will host seven baseball camps throughout the Valley from October to January, highlighted by an advanced pitchers and catchers camp at Salt River Fields at Talking Stick and a Black Friday camp at Chase Field.

In addition, the D-backs will host three, three-day camps and two week-long camps around the Valley.

The camps are designed for youth ages 6-18 years old and are taught by instructors who are hand-picked by the D-backs’ organization from a group of former professional players and local collegiate and high school coaches.

Every camp registration includes a T-shirt, a hat and a free ticket to a 2013 D-backs’ regular-season home game with the opportunity to purchase additional discounted tickets. For more information and to register, visit www.dbacks.com/academy or call (800) 821-7152.
