Every young ballplayer dreams of stepping onto a professional field and swinging for the fences. Saturday a group of local kids got their chance.
The Bakersfield Train Robbers invited the kids to take their field with them for hitting, fielding, throwing, pitching and baserunning practice. Ballplayers ages 6 to 17 got to take part in drills, games and other baseball related fun.
Those who registered got a free ticket to the Train Robbers games after practice to watch them battle the High Desert Yardbirds.
If your little slugger would like to play, the Train Robbers are hosting another camp next Saturday at their field. For more information go to their Facebook page: www.facebook.com/events/2059825604293712/
