Omaha Baseball Camp Honors The Life Of Chris Gradoville

The first annual "Chris Gradoville 'Graditude' Baseball Camp" on June 15th at Creighton University's Sports Complex is already a sold out event.

Instruction will be given by college and high school coaches, current and former college players, as well as former Major Leaguers including Omaha's own, Pat Venditte, Brian Duensing, and Tyler Cloyd, who played at Creighton, Nebraska, and UNO respectively.

Organizers say they will be teaching and inspiring kids to live life and play the game as Chris Gradoville did with enthusiasm, heart, hustle, and determination.

All the proceeds will go to the Chris Gradoville Leadership Scholarship.
