Get ready for the exciting Nike Baseball Camp Stanford All-Star Sessions this summer in Stanford, CA! This is the 38th consecutive year of running the Stanford All-Star Sessions.

The Nike Baseball Camp Stanford All-Star Sessions are often referred to as the best camps in America. It began because it was not physically and monetarily possible for college coaches to see all the prospects we needed to see during the summer months. With that in mind, we started the Nike Baseball Camp Stanford All-Star Sessions! These amazing sessions are open to High School Players Graduating in 2025, 2026, and 2027.

These sessions are much more than a showcase or identification camp. This is a 4-day “BASEBALL EXPERIENCE”. You will live 4 days of baseball. You will receive instruction from some of the best college coaches in the country. You will be provided with ample time and reps to improve your game. In addition, you will play in a 9-10 inning game each full day of camp so that you can demonstrate your passion and enthusiasm for baseball! All of this at Stanford's amazing baseball facility, Sunken Diamond!

This camp/experience is three days of intense baseball. We guarantee that, by the end of the camp, you will be physically exhausted. Many former campers have told us our camp was the best three days of their summer.

Following the completion of the All-Star Sessions, each camper will receive two evaluations. One will come from Sportsboard and will contain all your metrics and their respective ranks. It will also contain a defensive evaluation from your practice position coach. The other evaluation is written by your camp team coach.

There will be 30+ college coaches that work each session at the camp. By design, we have colleges at all division levels, and from all regions of the country. SCHOOLS FROM THE EAST COAST, NORTH, MIDWEST, SOUTH, NORTHWEST, AND WEST COAST are all part of our staff.

When searching for a camp we feel you should be looking for a camp that allows college coaches ample opportunities to assess your abilities. Most camps offer skill assessment and live game action, but the real separator for our Stanford All-Star Sessions is your daily practice session. Our practice sessions give you access to hands on instruction from some of the best baseball teachers in the game; and the reps needed to help you improve your game!

Practice sessions run approximately 3 hours. One hour is devoted to hitting, one hour devoted to defense, one hour devoted to strength, speed, conditioning. The practice segments are EXTREMELY important to our evaluation process. For example, if you are an infielder there is no guarantee that even one groundball will be hit to you during your game. However, over the course of three days of practice, our coaches will easily see you field 125 ground balls. They will put you through all types of plays (fore-hand, backhand, slow roller, etc.) so that we get the best feel for your skill level.

STANFORD RECRUITMENT PHILOSOPHY

Here at Stanford we feel that there are basically only two types of high school baseball recruits. One is a “tooled” recruit, the other is a “technique/performance” recruit. In our opinion, it is imperative that you, as a high school student-athlete, know which category you fall into.

What is a “tooled” recruit? This person has something “DYNAMIC” about them. They may be physically imposing (for example: 6’4”, 225 lbs) when compared to others in his age group. They may possess extraordinary speed and quickness (6.5 in the 60 yard dash). They throw extraordinarily hard (fastball velocity) for his age. In a batting practice session, he demonstrates extraordinary power. If you fall into these categories, attending baseball “showcases” can be very productive for you. Most baseball showcases are well attended by college baseball coaches because they can see a lot of high school baseball players in a short period of time. The flaw in showcases is that there are a limited amount of repetitions for the participants.

A ”technique/performance” recruit is much harder to identify. Physically he doesn’t stand out. Just a normal high school player – 5’9” to 6’1”, 155 – 185 lbs. He is an average to good runner (6.9 to 7.2 in the 60). He doesn’t drive a lot of balls over the OF head but has the ability to make consistent barrel contact. His swing is simple and uncomplicated, yet very efficient. If he is a pitcher he throws in the 80’s and has one or two other quality pitches. He can command all three pitches and use them in any count. He has a nice arm action. He just seems to know how to win games.

Two major challenges if you fall into the technique/performance recruit category you have two major challenges.

Challenge 1: A coach / recruiter doesn’t truly appreciate your talent unless he sees you play numerous times. The reality is that virtually no college coach can commit that amount of time to one team or recruit.

Challenge 2: Not every college coach will recognize or see your potential. In our mind that is what makes baseball great! One coach may see it (your potential) and others may not.

If you are a technique/performance recruit and you opt to participate in baseball events outside of your summer baseball team commitments, you should choose an event where you can get SIGNIFICANT reps! The Nike Baseball Camp Stanford All-Star Sessions are exactly that kind of event

Sunken D Iamond Facility Photo

Klein Field at Sunken Diamond

Often called the most beautiful college baseball facility in the country, Klein Field at Sunken Diamond is the home to Stanford Baseball, and is located a short distance south of Stanford Stadium. The “Sunken Diamond” name comes from the excavation to provide fill for the earthen berm within which Stanford Stadium was built in 1921, leaving a large, sunken field.
