Baseball Hall of Fame member in Kelowna for summer camp

Former Blue Jays infielder Roberto Alomar joins some ex-teammates and the Kelowna Falcons for the Honda Super Camp at Elks Stadium

Former Blue Jays' star Roberto Alomar will be in Kelowna this summer for the Honda Super Camp for Kids.

Baseball fans in Kelowna will get a chance see a Hall of Fame member up close and personal this summer during the Honda Super Camp for Kids.

Former Toronto Blue Jays’ star Roberto Alomar will be in the city July 9 to 11 for the three-day instructional camp, co-hosted by the Kelowna Falcons.

In January 2011 Alomar solidified his legacy when he was inducted into the Major League Baseball Hall of Fame. He is currently the only Blue Jays player to be inducted.

Alomar spent five seasons with the Blue Jays from 1991 to 1995, winning World Series titles in 1992 and 1993.  He compiled a .307 average over the five years, 832 hits, 55 homeruns, 342 RBIs and 206 steals.  His Blue Jays No. 12 jersey was retired in Toronto in July of 2011

Alomar will join Duane Ward, Homer Bush, Lloyd Moseby, Rance Mulliniks, Kelowna native Paul Spoljaric and Roberto’s brother Sandy Alomar in Kelowna.  The seven players will be the guest instructors at the Honda Super Camp for Kids at Elks Stadium.  These three-day camps offer children ages 10 to 16, of all abilities, the ultimate Major League experience.

A number of Falcons from the 2012 roster will also be assisting at the Honda Super Camp.

Following the camp each day, the Falcons will host the Klamath Falls Gems at Elks Stadium.
