TALLAHASSEE, Fl. (WTXL) - The chance for any athlete to learn from big time athletes is priceless. For youth baseball players in Tallahassee, that becomes a reality this weekend.

The 10th Annual Father-Son Baseball Camp is back, and the great thing about this camp? Since it's for fathers and sons, the dads get to hang out with the big time ball players too.

The camp is put on every year by former Florida State stand-out Bryan Henry and David Ross, the Florida High grad who won the 2016 World Series with the Chicago Cubs.

Sean Gilmartin, Tyler Holt, and James Ramsey are just a few former Seminoles standouts that will help out at this year's camp.

In it's ten years, the camp has grown from just over a dozen kids to over 120, and as much fun as the kids have, the dads are just as excited about meeting all of the former Seminoles that will be in attendance as well.

"The dad's know who the players are," said Henry. "The kids are like, oh, it's a professional player, and the dads are Sean Gilmartin, he pitched this time. He was an All-American here. That's what's fun is the dad's get to tell the kids who it is, what he's done and they're just like, I just want an autograph. It's fun to see the interaction between everybody."

The camp is Saturday January 20th at Chiles High School. It starts at 11:00, but walk-up registration begins at 10:30. The cost to attend is $110.
