The InSports Foundation and St. Paul Saints teamed up for a second year in a row to provide 9 camp scholarships for local youth in the community. We are excited to introduce one of our scholarship recipients, Hunter!
Hunter has been playing baseball since he was 3 years old and was very excited to step foot on CHS Field for the first time. He enjoys playing football, baseball and wrestling but says his favorite sport is baseball. During his time at the camp, Hunter was in the championship finals for the pitching competition and received 1st place twice!
