Athletes focused on the fundamentals of hitting and fielding while also competing in contests. The camp also featured a chance to get wet while practicing sliding with help from tarps, hoses and a bit of dish soap.

Both current and former Indians helped as instructors with former players Morgan Pittman, Brett Cammons, Zack McCurry, Cole Amtmann, Jarius Rhoads and Jon Banks among those assisting members of the 2014 Indians, head coach Franklin DeLoach and assistants Brandon Blair, Mark Bowles, Roc Coleman, Matt Wilson and Morris Milner.
