Plano East High School Hosts Annual Baseball Camp
Every year the Plano East High School baseball coaches host a camp in order to teach their future athletes more about baseball and their program. These camps are open to kids going into kindergarten thru the 9th grade and lead by the current players and coaching staff of the Plano East baseball program.
“I had tons of fun and learned a lot about baseball,” reported Adam Toth, a student at Hunt Elementary School, was one of 140 campers who attend the 4-day event. “These camps are not only to get students excited about baseball but to get them excited about being a Panther baseball player one day” as stated by camp organizer Jordan Byrd, head coach of the Plano East program. “These camps are continuing to grow and are a good leadership opportunity for current members of the team.”
Campers kept track of their progress throughout the week in individualized notebooks to see their skills improve in running, fielding and hitting. Coach Byrd closed the week in an award ceremony where campers were recognized for their individual achievements in a variety of skills. Coach Byrd closed the week out encouraged by the progress he saw at all age levels. Campers were excited for the opportunity they had to interact with their future school coaches.
