This Nike Baseball camp and The Bruins sport a new look: not in new uniforms or bright-eyed freshmen, but the Morse Athletic Complex itself. After a two-year fundraising and planning process, which is still ongoing, the Bruins will play on artificial turf this spring. This camp will take place on the brand new, state of the art facilities which The Bruins call their new home.
