LECOMPTE, La. (KALB) – Warren Morris and Louisiana Christian baseball coach Mike Byrnes have teamed up to run a youth camp, which teaches boys and girls how to get up to speed and improve their skills.
This is the first baseball camp that Morris and Byrnes have organized. The former College World Series hero and MLB player said it’s fun to be able to give back to the community he’s always been a part of and what he learned during his baseball career.
“Warren is one of the best instructors. He’s not only a great player, but he’s a great human being and a great mentor,” Coach Byrnes said. “Learning from the best will make you the best and that’s what we’re trying to accomplish here.”
Kids learn the basics of Morris baseball in a fun and easy way.
“To be able to come back as someone who was able to play at LSU and play in the major leagues, and now to be able to share the things that I’ve learned with these kids is kind of surreal. It’s almost like the full cycle “Ultimately it’s about making the game fun, so I think the better you are at the game, the more you enjoy it and the more you want to learn.”
Morris and Byrnes will have their final session next Wednesday, June 25, at the Champions Sportsplex.
