The Milwaukee Brewers Baseball Academy will be held next week at Wildwood Park in Sheboygan, highlighted by a trip to Miller Park on the final day.
The academy, from Monday through Aug. 23, is open to children ages 6-14 and runs from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. each day.
The cost is $395, which includes four tickets to a Brewers’ game, among other items.
On Aug. 23, participants will take a bus to Miller Park for drills on the warning track as well as a picture in the dugout with one of the Brewers.
“Our mission is to create a world-class training environment wrapped in an unforgettable Brewers experience,” said Tim Rappe, the executive director of the academy.
Experienced coaches will provide instruction during the week, and all participants take part in skills competitions according to age. Upon completion of the camp, the top scorers from throughout the summer – the academy is held throughout the state – are invited to the Champions Day Finals at the stadium.
“We are extremely excited to partner once again with the Brewers to bring this event back to Sheboygan,” said A’s vice president, C.J. Skelton. “The Brewers were very pleased with how we handled the event last year, and we look forward to continuing the relationship.”
