The Cleveland Hearing & Speech Center (CHSC) announces the Nick Hamilton Youth Baseball Camp to benefit the Center’s Give Them the World fundraising campaign on Saturday, September 26 from 9 a.m. – noon at Weiss Field in Avon Lake, Ohio.
The Camp is open to boys and girls, ages 5-18. A $30 registration donation fee is suggested. Pre-registration at www.chsc.org/campform. Walk-in registrations and payments can be made at the gate on the day of the Camp.
The Camp is hosted by Nick Hamilton, son of Cleveland Indians radio broadcaster Tom Hamilton and his wife Wendy, who went on to play baseball in the minor leagues with the Cleveland Indians and is now a scout for the Philadelphia Phillies. Hamilton credits much of his accomplishments to the help he received through CHSC services as a child.
“When I was 3 years old, I was diagnosed with moderate-to-severe hearing loss. I certainly wouldn’t have had the opportunities to succeed in life if it weren’t for the help and guidance my family and I received over the years at Cleveland Hearing & Speech Center,” Hamilton says.
The Give Them the World fundraising campaign supports the programs and services of the Cleveland Hearing & Speech Center. Proceeds from the Camp will benefit CHSC through Hamilton’s donation to the campaign. For more information about Give Them the World, visit www.chsc.org/gttwcampaign .
