Come join us at The Reese this Summer for Kids Camp. MTSU Baseball Kids Camp is for children grades K – 5, who are looking to learn more about baseball than they ever have before. Come learn and develop and have some fun with Head Coach Jim Toman and the rest of the MTSU Coaching Staff as well as former and current players.

For three days, we will provide a fun and safe environment for kids to enjoy each morning learning and playing the game of baseball, as well as making new friends and learning a few things outside of baseball as well.

There will be fundamental drills and skillwork that will be taught as well as some games and fun that don’t involve Baseball. We try to create the best environment possible for kids to enjoy their time here at MTSU.

We want parents to know that this camp is not a “Baseball Boot Camp.” There will be more than plenty of baseball specific stations and knowledge presented to your children. With that being said, we will also look to let them have fun and enjoy there time with us with a few other activities outside of Baseball.

We can’t wait to host you this Summer.

The impact that he will have on the MTSU pitching staff will be immediate.  Jim Toman has always been respected as one of the great recruiters in college baseball, and in Coach Meyers, he has added a coach who will develop and mentor student-athletes to excel and reach new heights.

Tim Corbin, Head Baseball Coach, Vanderbilt
Jerry has always been one of the premier pitching coaches in the country. When you look at the South Carolina teams that he was a part of, pitching success was paramount, and he had a lot to do with that. At the heart of it, Jerry has a teacher’s spirit for pitching. He is a very good instructor.
