The Northview Knights baseball program hosted its annual youth camp on Wednesday for area players.

The free camp focused on working on fundamentals of the game from fielding individual positions as well as throwing and pitching.

The athletes also got a chance to work out with current members of the Northview baseball team at the newly renovated high school field.

Updates to the field include an enclosed press box along with a re-sodded infield and a freshly rolled outfield. The outfield wall also has a new screen featuring the school name. Future renovations include a three-foot high brick wall to be run along both the first and third base lines.
