The 3rd Annual Father-Son Baseball Camp is set to throw out its first pitch later this month. January 29th, former FSU ace Bryan Henry and Atlanta Braves catcher David Ross will bring their baseball network to TCC's Eagle Field for a unique baseball experience.

Fathers actually get to participate in the drills with their sons while getting the instructional training from some brilliant baseball minds. The 2010 camp featured former FSU catcher and World Series Champion/ Rookie of the Year Buster Posey as a special guest. This year's special guest is 2010 MLB Draft Pick and former FSU centerfielder Tyler Holt.
