Along with going through an experience similar to that of an actual MLB player, campers will also receive instruction from a host of Dodger legends. According to a press release, there are 10 former Dodgers scheduled to be in attendance, nine of which are World Series champions: Ron Cey, Tommy Davis, Steve Garvey, Mickey Hatcher, Eric Karros, Rick Monday, Steve Sax, Don Sutton, Maury Wills and Steve Yeager.
Vice president of Historic Dodgertown, Craig Callahan, shared his excitement over the announcement of the instructors:
This All-Star group of instructors brings enormous credentials and years of accomplishments,” Callan said. “Campers will enjoy interacting with all these legends during their six nights and five days stay at Historic Dodgertown. This will truly be a memorable experience.”
The camp costs $4,995 per person and along with learning from the instructors, it includes complimentary transportation from local airports if a reservation is made at least two weeks in advance, and memorabilia items such as, authentic home and road jerseys.
