Barry Lyons Baseball Camp
Some of Biloxi’s smallest baseball fans are learning how to play ball with the big-leaguers.
It was day one for kids signed up for the Barry Lyons Baseball Camp at MGM Park in Biloxi. The kids were scoring tips and tricks from some of the Biloxi Shuckers and former Major Leaguer and Biloxi native Barry Lyons.
The Shuckers who were helping out today say it feels great to have the chance to pass on what they know about the game to the kids. Camper Brayden Morgan said, “Put your right hand right here, then you put your left hand, you step and then you swing level and then you hit the ball how far you can and then you run.” Camper Elly Fetters said, “I learned throwing the ball and catching the ball.”
Campers got autographs and pictures with the Shuckers when the camp wrapped up.
Tomorrow, there will be another group of kids at MGM Park learning the fundamentals of baseball.
