ALBANY, Ga. (WALB) - South Georgia’s next generation of stars got the chance to train Monday.

Kids ages 5-12 improved their game and knowledge in a facility that’s groomed some of South Georgia’s best.

Over 40 kids were in attendance Monday morning. Game On Training director of operations, Jay Flynt had the participants go through various drills and film reviews.

Former campers who have graduated to the high school and collegiate ranks returned this week for some fun. While also taking on the leadership role, coaching the youth, and helping to perfect their skills.

Flynt said camps like this can produce unrivaled talent.

“Excited about the braves, we got a couple of guys, Josh Hatcher, who just won the national championship with Mississippi State. He hit at this facility. Steven Williams just got drafted. Steven was here most of his young and college life. Played and hit Sunday before he left for Washington Nationals. So just the excitement of baseball here in Albany and Leesburg, we’re just excited about that,” said Flynt.

The camp will continue throughout the week.

He says there’ll be a machine-pitch league for ages 7-10 after Labor Day.
