Berry Teaches Catching, Throwing, Hitting at USM Kids Camp

Posted: Updated:

USM's second kids camp offers an experience consistent with the first session in June.

"Same camp - different campers," says Southern Miss head baseball coach Scott Berry.

With about 80 new campers, Coach Berry revisits the elementary skills.

"Basic fundamentals of catching a baseball, throwing a baseball and hitting a baseball - I think that's the main thing," says Berry.

Berry says these basic fundamentals are the same skills that win his team ball games.

"I think those are certainly keys to success, and any combination of those three and two will usually win you a baseball game," says Berry.

But if it was up to the campers, they would just jump straight to the fun stuff.

"The most fun part is the scrimmages," says 8-year-old camper Quin Sirmon.

"Yeah, I get to compete," says 7-year-old camper Hayden Federico.

"I like competition because it's fun and you get to do all the stuff at one time, but when you're just practicing you just do one [thing] at a time," says Quin.

With the first three days of camp in the books, Quin and Hayden await more competition and defense on day four .

"Tomorrow - just playing more scrimmages," says Quin.

"Robbing balls," says Hayden.
