As camp commissioner Jim Tracy kicked off the first ever Rockies Fantasy Camp at Salt River Fields, the green grass and blue sky was hard to ignore in the background. 2012 camp starts with another perfect day in Scottsdale, and it continues now with the campers suiting up for the first time this season.
Following the team photo the campers will have the opportuity to go through a baseball clinic from former Rockies legends such as Larry Walker and Vinny Castilla, along with current Rockies stars Jorge De La Rosa and Rex Brothers, as well as the entire camp coaching staff.
Following the clinic will be the tryout game, which allows the coaching staff a chance to scout the “talent” prior to the draft.
Needless to say, day one allows the campers to jump right into the action. The day will be wrapped up by playing the first league games of Rockies Fantasy Camp 2012 under the lights at Salt River Fields at Talking Stick.
