    Director Brooks Carey

    Carey joins the Jackals for his second managerial job and his 11th season in professional baseball. In five seasons as the CornBelters’ skipper, Carey posted a 248-230 record, but his biggest success came in 2015. After leading the club to its first ever winning season in 2014, Carey set his sights higher and took the CornBelters to their first playoff berth as champions of the West Division.

    Taught My Daughter More Softball & Being A Young Lady

    "I cannot put into words the experience my daughter gained from going to the camp. She not only learned skills in softball but how to be a better young lady. The morals and values the staff brought to the camp were extraordinary. We looked at sending her to another camp and decided on the NIKE Camp for convenience and I am so glad we did.  I will highly recommend this camp to anyone who is interested in gaining skills and personal growth. We look forward to next year!!"
