CAMP BATS AND BALLS WAS HELD SATURDAY, OCTOBER 2, 2021 from 9:00am-11:30pm. This year’s Camp Bats and Balls was the 20th anniversary of the camp! In 2001, Camie Bianco was a member of JA and had the idea to start this baseball day camp for local kids. We are so grateful to her and Coach Bianco for making this camp into what it has become over the past two decades. We honored them with a quick presentation and plaque as camp began. Thank you again, Coach and Camie Bianco!
Sponsored by DEH Trucking and Oxford Orthopedics, this project is typically a half-day baseball skills camp for boys in 3rd & 4th grades. Camp Bats and Balls lets Junior Auxiliary of Oxford partner with the Ole Miss Baseball team at the Manning Center. The boys have the opportunity to experience a sports camp as they rotate through stations led by the team. The boys also receive an autographed photo, lunch donated by area restaurateurs, and a t-shirt. JA works with school counselors and teachers to spread the word about this camp to boys in the community.
