Monarch Kitchen Helps Give Kids the Competitive Edge

Nigel Wilson runs The Competitive Edge Summer Camps
Former major league hitter Nigel Wilson has a long list of accomplishments under his belt.

Signed by the Blue Jays at the young age of 16, Nigel was drafted first by the Florida Marlins in 1993 and left MLB for a successful baseball career in Japan. From 1997 to 1999, he led the Japanese Baseball League in home runs, and is only the second player in Japanese history to hit home runs in four consecutive at-bats. Recently, he was selected to participate in the 2013 World Baseball Classic as hitting coach for Great Britain's team.

At The Competitive Edge in Ajax, Nigel dedicates his time to teaching young athletes the finer points of baseball. With the assistance of private and corporate sponsorships, Nigel is able to provide summer camp opportunities to many of Durham Region's youth, many of whom would not be able to participate without financial aid. At summer camp, players enjoy lessons on hitting, infielding, outfielding, pitching, base running and game situations.

Monarch Kitchen and Bath Centre is a proud sponsor of The Competitive Edge summer camps and encourages you to participate in this worthwhile program in 2013.
