All In Sports Outreach held its fourth annual baseball camp on Saturday.

The camp was for kids ages 7-12.

“It went real well. We had great help. Jamie Tellier had a really good plan for the day,” said Bob Frazer who also worked with the camp. “The turnout was just perfect. Each kid was able to get plenty of reps. Hunter Veach, an up and coming now in girls’ fast-pitch softball was a tremendous help to Adrian Holloway, Head Baseball Coach Selma University, brought one of his ace pitchers, Derrick Sylve. Derrick did a really great job of helping the kids with their pitching and hitting. Mike Irwin was also a blessing to have helping with hitting. We had several board members on hand helping with the morning.

“It was just three hours of baseball work. It was really fun seeing the kids (ages 7-12) get better and their desire to work hard,” said Frazer. “At the end of the morning we shared why we do what we do. We want to help these kids approach baseball with the right attitude and the right effort. Our theme verse is Colossians 3:17 ‘And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus.’ We want these guys and girls to understand God loves them and has a plan for them in Jesus Christ. When we play for something greater than ourselves (Jesus) we will do it with the right attitude and effort. Everything was just right.”

“It was just another opportunity for us to spread the Gospel,” All in Sports Outreach Selma team member Jamie Tellier said.

“It’s great to go out there and learn things in sports because those things help you in life, but why not learn about the one who gave you those talents to play those sports. We want to preach love to them. Something I think our city needs now more than ever.”

All In Sports Outreach scheduled the camp during Auburn and Alabama’s bye week so no one missed their team play while they’re at the park.
