“I’m so excited Guardians Youth Summer Camps are back in communities throughout Ohio,” said Guardians infielder Andrés Giménez. “The high-quality instruction and coaching provided is unmatched. Thinking back to my early years playing baseball, I wish there were more Major League opportunities like this.”

The camps will take place from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. each day and will focus on "providing an incredible Cleveland Guardians baseball and softball experience guaranteed to improve each young athlete’s ability to play the game," according to organizers.
Campers will be grouped based on age and ability, in order to give each athlete the best opportunity to improve their skills. All of the coaches at the camps will be certified by the U.S. Center for SafeSport.
Attendees of the camps will also be given the opportunity to meet Giménez or a Guardians alumni.
