Phil Bova Baseball Camp closes after 45 years

It is with a grateful heart that we officially announce our youth baseball camp, held at the Westlake Recreation Center for the past several years, will come to a close after a 45-year run. A tradition like no other, the Bova camp became a summer tradition for many area families and was voted the No. 1 camp of its kind in Northeastern Ohio.

As this successful run comes to a close, I would like to take this opportunity to thank former campers, their parents and all the communities that trusted the Bova name for over four decades, and to acknowledge all of the businesses that proudly displayed the "Bova Baseball Camp sign" each year.

On behalf of myself and my wife, Donna, who was actively involved in organizing and running the program, I wish to say that we are truly grateful to have met so many wonderful people over the past 45 years and will always cherish the special memories that we have made. As our athletes take the next step in their baseball careers, it is our hope that we have prepared them fundamentally to enjoy the great game of baseball.
– Phil Bova
