VERO BEACH.- Vero Beach Sports Village, operated by Minor League Baseball, will become the home of Dave Raymond’s Mascot Boot Camp this February.
“We are thrilled to be working with MiLB and the Vero Beach Sports Village to create mascot training designed to help MiLB teams produce great mascot brands,” David Raymond, the original Phillie Phanatic mascot said. The initial camp in this joint effort between Minor League Baseball and Raymond Entertainment will be held Feb. 25 – 27.
“We have always known that the best mascot programs all have one thing in common…a talented and trained performer,” Raymond said.
His mascot performer training sessions were created over 18 years ago and hundreds of performers, including some from NFL, NBA and MLB clubs, have attended the weekend seminars.
“Minor League Baseball is proud to welcome Dave Raymond’s Mascot Boot Camp to our beautiful facility, the Vero Beach Sports Village,” Minor League Baseball Executive VP & COO Tim Purpura said.
MiLB clubs will have a special rate available to them for this Mascot Boot Camp, which includes tuition and room and board at the 67-acre sports and conference center in Vero Beach.
