The Ross Natoli Fall Cardinal Prospect Camp is designed for the advanced high school student-athlete in the 2020-2023 graduating classes who is striving to reach their full potential and eventually compete at the college level. All players will have an opportunity to meet, learn and be evaluated by the current Catholic University Baseball coaching staff.
Our Camp coaching staff and instructors will include the Catholic University Baseball Coaching Staff, led by Head Coach Ross Natoli in his 35th year, Associate Head Coach Bobby Picardo, Assistant/Pitching Coach Chris Nee and Assistant Coaches Mark Duffy, Tyler McCarthy, Jack Hennessy and Brennan Cotter. Varsity players from the 2019-2020 Catholic University Baseball Team will also be on staff to participate as assistant camp instructors and interact with prospects and parents throughout the Camp.
Our camp goals are to provide a forum for prospective student-athletes to display their athletic and baseball talents to the entire Catholic University baseball coaching staff. Our two-day format will also provide instruction to improve each player's fundamental skills and prepare players to the fullest for their potential college baseball careers. The camp will emphasize pitching, individual defensive position play, hitting fundamentals, base running, strength and agility training, and live game competition.
Participants will be tested and evaluated in key skills areas including: arm strength, running speed, hitting, pitching, catching, throwing, fielding and base running during the showcase and position-specific instructional skill development sessions, as well as in live game play. Sessions covering the unique features of Catholic University and the Cardinal Baseball program, our academic requirements and expectations, the college recruiting and admissions process, balancing college academics and baseball, dinner and an optional campus tour for players and parents are included.
We encourage position players to attend both days of the camp if possible. It is only necessary for “Pitcher Only” players to attend one day. The best day for "Pitcher Only" players to attend would be Sunday, October 27 when live games are played. Select the day when registering.
