CAMDEN’S MICHAEL KOHN, a rookie relief pitcher with the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim, will work with young pitchers and catchers at a Dec. 12 clinic in his hometown.

Camden High School and the Kershaw County Recreation Department are presenting The Michael Kohn Pitcher/Catcher Camp on Sunday, Dec. 12 at American Legion Park in Camden.

In addition to Kohn, members of the Camden High School baseball staff will provide instruction.

The three-hour session will run from 2 p.m. until 5 p.m. The cost is $20 per camper. In the event of inclement weather, the old Continuous Learning Center gymnasium, located on York Street in Camden, will be used.

Registration is currently taking place through the KCRD. To register by phone, please call 425-6009.

Campers are asked to dress with baseball pants and/or sweat pants and will need to have tennis shoes if the weather is bad, so they can participate in drills in the carpeted gym. If campers have their own catcher’s gear, they need to bring that as well. 

Campers will receive a certificate of participation which can be used for an autograph session at the end of the camp.  There will also be some Los Angeles Angels paraphernalia for sale as well as some Camden High School spirit items.

Kohn, a Camden native and a 2004 Camden High School graduate, was selected by the Angels in the 13th round of the 2008 Major League Baseball Draft after closing out his college career at the College of Charleston as a reliever.

The right-handers made a quick ascent through the Angels’ minor leagues system. In 2009, he went from low Class A ball to the team’s top class A entry in Rancho Cucamonga, Cal.

Kohn opened the 2010 season playing for AA Arkansas before being moved to AAA Salt Lake. On July 26, the 24-year-old was promoted to the Angels and that night, appeared in his first Major League game in a relief role against the Boston Red Sox.

The 6-foot, 200-pound right-hander appeared in 24 games for the Angels and fashioned a 2.11 earned run average. He was 2-0 with a save for the Halos.
