A few spots available in Oswego High softball camp

Former Oswego High School softball standout pitchers Katie Frawley (Class of 2002) and Abby Martin (Class of 2007) will join the staff of the 24th Annual Lady Buccaneer Softball Mini Camp that will be held June 30-July 2, said camp director Mike McCrobie.

There are still openings in the camp, that will be held at the Oswego High School fields for girls ages 9-16 who want to sharpen their skills and have some softball fun.

Martin and Frawley are two of only three Lady Buccaneer players to have been named East Regional High School All-Americans by the National Fastpitch Coach’s Association.

After stellar careers at Oswego High,  each went on to college successes — Frawley at Illinois Wesleyan University and Martin at Cortland State.

Frawley now coaches high school softball at T.C. Williams High School in Alexandria, Va. while working full-time for the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics.

Martin has completed two years on the coaching staff at Cortland State where she helped lead the Red Dragons to the Division III college world series in 2013.

There will be a total of nine hours of quality instruction throughout the three-day camp. Activities will include throwing, position play, base running, team defense, hitting, bunting, sliding and mini-games. The camp will run daily from 9 a.m. until noon for ages 9-12, and from 1-4 p.m. for players ages 13-16. The camp has a rain date of July 3.

The cost is $50 per player. There is a sibling discount available, where additional players from the same family can enroll for $40 each. Enrollment is limited to the first 60 players.

All players will receive a commemorative Oswego softball souvenir as well as a player’s report card.
