MONTROSE — Normally a pitcher and shortstop, Christopher Arzoumanian stood in center field tracking down fly balls at Montrose Park on Tuesday.
He caught two fly balls in a row before racing to right-center field to make a tumbling catch. For his effort, Arzoumanian collected several grass stains on his gray jersey and applause from his teammates.
It was a sign that Arzoumanian, 12, was getting comfortable learning a new position while taking part in the third annual Falcon Summer Baseball Camp.
"If I'm going to play in the outfield, it's going to be center field," said Arzoumanian, one of 90 participants to attend the four-day camp that began Monday and concluded Thursday. "Measuring the trajectory of the ball is so important.
"I'm also here to learn more about hitting, taking leads on the bases and get better with my pitching. It's also learning about sportsmanship, playing against older players and getting better in all the different parts of the game."
