LISLE, IL. – The Bulls/Sox Academy announced that they
will be hosting their annual summer baseball camps at Keystone East on 400 East Keystone Ave. beginning Monday June 18thand will run through Friday June 22nd.
The Bulls/Sox Academy has improved the fundamentals of more than 50,000 players. This summer, it’s your turn to step up to the plate and train with the best!

The summer camps are in over 60 different communities throughout the Chicago area. Every participant in the summer camp program receives six free White Sox tickets, an Academy hat, t-shirt and graduation certificate. Restrictions apply to ticket vouchers. All athletes seven and older will also have their abilities tested in some of the same skills that pro scouts use to evaluate talent. The Top 30 qualifiers in each age group will compete in the finals at U.S. Cellular Field in September at our Champions Day event.
