Trenton's Anthony Bass Returns Home to Host Annual Baseball Clinic

Wayne State University will host the second annual Anthony Bass Pitching Camp on Saturday, Jan. 25 inside the university's multipurpose facility. An autograph session will be held for all camp participants.

From small town to major league success, right-handed hurler Anthony Bass has made himself quite at home in San Diego, while pitching with the Padres across the previous two Major League Baseball seasons.

But the former Wayne State University Warrior and Trenton Trojan also strives to make his presence known elsewhere: His hometown.  

Bass will return to the Detroit campus and team up with the Warriors to host the second annual Anthony Bass Pitching Camp Jan. 25 at the university’s indoor baseball complex.

The emphasis will be on aspects of pitching with a concentration on development, mechanics, strategies and concepts involved for success on the mound, the university said. 

Bass has a career 4.08 ERA over 187.1 innings pitched in 75 games played. He was drafted in the fifth round by the Padres in 2008. 

WSU head coach Ryan Kelley, in a statement, said that “Beyond (Bass’) significant pitching attributes, camp participants will learn several lessons at this camp that will help them transcend both on the mound and off the field."

The camp, which had over 70 participants last year, is open to aspiring pitchers from grades 3-12 and costs $65 per person.

"I'm really looking forward to the second annual pitching camp," Bass told WSU Athletics. "We had an excellent turnout last January and I am looking forward to seeing new and familiar faces this year."

Registration can be completed online at waynestatebaseballcamps.com. In addition to the camp curriculum, an autograph session will be held for all camp attendees.
