Catholic Baseball Camp 2017

About Mike Sweeney's Catholic Baseball Camp


I have put together "Christian" Baseball Camps for years. While playing for the Kansas City Royals, I'd host a camp where we would play baseball all day and conclude with me sharing with the kids my real love in life. Baseball?? No... JESUS! Yes! These camps were very popular and were attended by as many as 350 kids annually. When I came to San Diego to retire, God brought the idea of doing something similar under the California sun. I came to realize that there are many Christian Baseball Camps but to my knowledge, nothing like this has been done! I wanted to create an authentically Catholic three day Baseball Camp/Retreat where kids will see their baseball skills improve and their faith come alive. We will start each day with Mass, memorize scripture, pray a "Baseball Field Live Rosary" as a group. Confession will be offered daily by the group of Miles Christ Religious Order Priests and we will conclude each day with Worship and Praise music.


Although you need not be Catholic to attend, this will be an authentically Catholic experience where kids will learn from men who combined have over 100 years of Major League Baseball experience. We are limiting the camp to 200 young boys to ensure they get the best one on one attention and instruction. We hope you will join us! This is something you want to be a part of. Our goal is to hit a home run for Jesus!
