The Catching Academy is excited to announce the addition of major league all-star catcher Jonathan Lucroy as a guest instructor for the upcoming Catching Academy High School Elite Catching Camp sponsored by Under Armour & hydrated by BODYARMOR
Lucroy’s two all-star selections came in 2014 as a member of the Milwaukee Brewers and in 2016; a season split between the Brewers and Texas Rangers. He is currently a member of the Oakland Athletics and to date has played more than 1,100 games in nine years in the major leagues with four different teams.
Lucroy will be in attendance for the entire one-day-only, which will run from 9:00 AM until 5:00 PM on December 1 at Bulldog Field, home of CSM baseball.
Lucroy will also headline a panel discussion at the conclusion of the day’s instruction.
“It is an honor to have Jonathan attend our upcoming camp,” said Catching Academy founder Brett Thomas. “I am excited for our catchers who will have a chance to learn from a two-time all star who is perennially one of the top defensive catchers in the major leagues. This is chance to learn from the absolute best.”
Lucroy brings the number of instructors working the camp to 13, including four of whom are currently employed at the major league level as coaches or bullpen instructors, and five active professional catchers currently playing in the minor leagues.
Instruction will be led by Catching Academy founder Brett Thomas and instructors Ben Lopez and Kevin Stanley.
Dinner, provided by Evergood Sausage, will be at 6:00 PM until 7:00 PM.
