Indians to hold field clinic and campouts at Victory Field

Officials with the Indianapolis Indians have announced the return of the annual Youth Baseball Clinic as well as Boy and Girl Scout overnight campouts for the 2013 season.

Troops, dens, and packs can pack Victory Field for a full night of activities during the Tribe’s Boy and Girl Scouts overnight campout events. After a regularly scheduled Indians game that is followed by a fireworks show, campout participants can remain in the ballpark after the game and are treated to popcorn and a movie on the videoboard. Scout groups will also have the opportunity to take to the Tribe’s outfield to set up their tents for the evening, with the event being capped off by breakfast on Saturday morning.

Overnight Boy Scout campouts are set for June 7 when the Indians take on the Durham Bulls at 7:15 p.m., and June 28, as the Tribe battles the Rochester Red Wings at 7:15 p.m. The Girl Scout Campout is scheduled for June 21, immediately following the 7:15 p.m. contest between the Tribe and the Charlotte Knights.

Reservations for the Boy and Girl Scout Campouts, which historically sell out, may be made by calling the Victory Field Box Office at 269-3545.

The 2013 Youth Baseball Clinic will also offer fans an exclusive on-field experience as participants will receive one-on-one instruction from the Indianapolis Indians’ coaches and players. The clinic, which is set for 5 p.m. June 6, includes several skills stations that will focus on various throwing, fielding, and pitching drills. Youth ages 14 and younger may participate in the event and admission is included with the purchase of a single-game ticket to Thursday night’s game between Indianapolis and the Durham Bulls.

Those interested in participating in the 2013 Youth Baseball Clinic are not required to register for the event, and only need to buy a June 6 game ticket and arrive at Victory Field by 5 p.m.

Groups of 25 or more patrons will receive a $3 discount off the ticket price, and those with 100 or more participants will be granted $4 off of game day admission.

To book a group outing for the 2013 Youth Baseball Clinic, fans can call the Victory Field Box Office at 269-3545.
