What could be better than an exclusive summer baseball camp with the professional staff of the St. Paul Saints at the "Greenest Ballpark in America"? This summer 9 children got the opportunity to participate in a 3-day camp led by the Saints players and coaching staff sponsored by InSports Foundation. During their camp session they got the opportunity to sharpen their pitching, hitting, throwing, and fielding skills.
The kids chosen for the camp proved to be real all stars. During the camp session Nick, a scholarship recipient, was awarded a souvenir ball and chosen by the team to be the batboy at that nights game. Jalen, another recipient, impressed the InSports team with his passion for sports and school. Not only did he attend a 3-day, 5 hour long baseball camp, he took a quick 1-hour break and headed to football practice where he was given the title of “player of the game”. On top of his enthusiasm in sports, he also attends a school for gifted and talented children.
The Saints Paul Saints camp was a great success. The InSports Team wrapped up the summer helping over 100 kids. One step closer to getting 10,000 kids in the game!
