Update for Winter Baseball Camp
Dear Baseball Family, we are sorry to announce that the Holman Baseball Shed will not be offering Private Baseball Instruction nor will Give Me A Chance To Play offer the annual Winter Baseball Camp this season. This year has been overwhelming in terms of personal obligations that have occupied much of our personal time. We will be back on schedule next Fall. Wishing everyone a successful 2016 Baseball Season, work hard!
2015 Preseason Workout Update
The 2015 Preseason Workout Clinics, held at the Holman Baseball Shed, were fun and beneficial to Wichita area high school baseball players. The workouts were held on Saturdays throughout the months of January and February at the "Shed" and provided Wichita high school aged ball players a chance to get their preseason work in. The players had full access to the facility and full access to former Seattle Mariner pitcher and current Texas Ranger's Minor League pitching coach, Brad Holman. Brad was available for hitting/pitching instruction and instruction on fundamentals. Give Me A Chance To Play, a non profit youth organization affiliated with the Holman Baseball Shed, would like to give a big "thank you" to Brad Holman for volunteering his time and facility to these young men. Other volunteers included Jaime Doss, Justin Harris, Stormy and a few dads who chipped in on the live bullpens. We would like to thank everyone; sponsors, donors and volunteers for making these preseason workouts possible. Good luck fellas, on your season!

The G.M.A.C.T.P. Spring Break Camp was a success! Our camps have drawn many kids who have the desire to learn the game and we have been blessed to have enough volunteers and instructors who have it in their hearts to teach and get to know these wonderful children. The free 3 day camp attracted 27 children on Monday at Evergreen Park, on Tuesday, 28 kids at Evergreen Park and 30 kids at McAdams Park. On Wednesday, we had 30 kids at Evergreen and 35 at McAdams. Wow! We would like to thank Holman Baseball Shed instructors Brent Holman and Brock Piper for their professional instruction, Lt.James Espinoza and the Wichita Police Department for providing wonderful officers to assist with the camps and who have a lot of baseball knowledge (and "Big" hearts), Youth Horizon's staff and boys (outstanding group)! Last, we would like to thank the Holman kiddos, they are doing a great job helping with these camps. Thanks guys and "Thank God" that we have this opportunity to share.
