Kid Reporter Goes to Chevy Youth Baseball Camp

This is my 4 th year straight being a kid reporter and attending the camp. The camp was from 9-12pm at

J.P. Riddle stadium on June 28 th . I don’t play baseball but I love doing the camp every year. I decided to

interview Matthew Perez who just turned 11 yesterday. This was Matthew’s first time attending and he

stated that it was a great for kids to learn more and have fun with baseball. He plays for 2 baseball

teams: Hope Mills Vipers travel team and the Hope Mills All Stars recreation. Matthew’s favorite part of

the camp was hitting and pitching. The Yankees is his favorite baseball team, and he also likes the


If you have no experience or lots of experience like Matthew, this camp is fun and a good refresher on

the sport. The players were professional and nice to all of the kids. They really wanted you to leave the

camp with a good sense of the game. If you have a child ages 5-14, please bring them to the next camp

this summer. Go Swampdogs!
