Los Angeles Dodgers Tony Gwynn Jr. hosted a youth baseball camp on November 14-15th at Xavier Prep High School in Palm Desert, California. The two-day event was a big hit and took place from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. both of the days. All of the youngsters had an opportunity to learn some vital baseball skills and have a great time interacting with Gwynn Jr. and the rest of the staff. The camp was geared for kids between the ages of 9 and 14, so there were lots of chances for them to mingle with each other and work with athletes at all different levels. In addition to that, it happened to be great weather that day and everyone got a healthy dose of fresh air.
The Long Beach, California native got his baseball career starting during his high school years and ended up playing for and attending San Diego State University, where his father went too. Gwynn Jr. was so talented that he was actually drafted right out of high school but declined the offer from the Atlanta Braves so that he could get a college education and improve his skills. He entered the 2003 MLB Draft where he was selected by the Milwaukee Brewers in the 2nd round, and played with the team from 2006-2008. In 2009, Gwynn Jr. was traded to the San Diego Padres where he played for two seasons before he signed a minor league contract with the Philadelphia Phillies. As of the end of 2014, the outfielder has been a free agent.
Gwynn Jr. hosted a baseball camp in mid-November at Xavier Prep High School in California, and he truly enjoyed being back in his home state and interacting with the local kids of the community.
