Yankees Baseball Camps to return to the tri-state area in 2016

American Dairy Association and Dairy Council's "REFUEL with Chocolate Milk" initiative to again sponsor Yankees Baseball Camp attendance for 85 children

The New York Yankees today announced that New York Yankees Baseball Camps presented by REFUEL with Chocolate Milk will take place in the New York tri-state area beginning the week of June 20, 2016. Enrollment forms are now available at www.yankees.com/camps.

Yankees Baseball Camps are available to boys and girls between the ages of 5 and 13, with each camper receiving a full Yankees uniform. In addition to on-field skill development and professional instruction, campers also get the opportunity to take an exclusive guided tour of Yankee Stadium and much more.

Sessions are currently being offered in two different packages: the World Series Experience includes four days of baseball instruction with an additional day-long visit to Yankee Stadium culminating in a "meet and greet" with a player on the Yankees' 25-man roster, while the Pinstripe Package includes five days of baseball curriculum. Camps are located in select areas of New York, New Jersey and Connecticut. Further details and availability for each package can be viewed at www.yankees.com/camps.

In addition, campers will receive a voucher good for two (2) complimentary tickets to a 2016 Yankees regular season home game.*

"Each week, our Yankees Campers will work hard with our coaches to learn proper baseball mechanics, engage with teammates, and begin a journey toward accomplishing their own personal goals," said Brendan Sullivan, President of Yankees Baseball Camps. "We wrap this development into an unforgettable week-long Major League Experience, which includes a behind-the-scenes tour of Yankee Stadium, a full Yankees uniform and opportunity to meet a player on the current roster. There's no better way to get closer to our favorite team."

As part of the American Dairy Association and Dairy Council's "REFUEL with Chocolate Milk" initiative, 85 children from local families will receive full scholarships to attend Yankees Baseball Camp at Heritage Field - which is located on the site of the original Yankee Stadium and administered by the New York City Department of Parks and Recreation - during the week of July 5-7.

"Milk plays an important role in children's diets because it's a source of so many essential nutrients like calcium, Vitamin D and protein needed for a healthy body. Drinking low fat chocolate milk after sports is a great way for athletes to replenish nutrients and rebuild muscle," said Rick Naczi, CEO of the American Dairy Association. "Teaming up with the Yankees to sponsor summer baseball camps gives us an opportunity to educate kids about the connection between good nutrition and athletic performance."
