Barry Lyons Baseball Camp
This week, kids get the chance to score some baseball tips from a local resident with Major League experience.
The Barry Lyons Baseball Camp will be held at MGM Park in Biloxi on July 6th and 7th. Former New York Mets catcher and Biloxi native, Barry Lyons, will teach the basic fundamentals of the game.
Players from the Biloxi Shuckers will also be there, giving campers pointers while making time for autographs and photos.
Lyons tells News 25 he is excited to give Biloxi’s youngest baseball fans a chance to get out of their seats and into the action. “We have these true to life ball players that these kids are watching on a nightly basis here at MGM Park when they do come to the games. To see them up close and personal and have that one-on-one interaction with them, I’m sure and I know from past experience, that it truly inspires the kids.”
The camp on July 6th is for those ages five to eight. The camp on July 7th is for those nine to 12 years of age.
Registration is $50.
