Baseball officials hope changes are a homerun

That’s not the only new relationship the league has formed. Next year it will offer price discounts for players who take part in both the Baseball League and the Valbrook summer baseball camp.
Inzerillo said a player who participates in both will get a combined discount of close to $100. Valbrook camps begin shortly after the Baseball League’s playoffs end, so children will be able to keep their skills sharp throughout the summer.
Graves said that the partnership will benefit the league. Players will get to learn from Valbrook’s experienced staff, which includes high schools coaches and college baseball players.
In these tough economic times, Graves said the deal is a good way to help people save money while actually giving a better experience. “The more exposure we can give people to baseball,” he said, “the better players they’re going to be.”
Inzerillo said he is excited for April when the season begins and all these changes begin to take effect. “We’re going to be a better league,” he said.
