To go along with a couple life lessons, kids from around the Pinebelt have been learning the basics from the Golden Eagles baseball team.
"The main thing is have fun and second of all we're teaching the fundamentals and trying to get them the right foundation to build on," Southern Miss head coach Scott Berry said at the end of the camp.
"The earlier you can build on that, the more chance you have for success later on."
Brennon McNair, 11, said he learned what it takes to be successful in the batters box.
"You want to keep your head down, stay flat and just hit it hard and don't think about any of the stuff that will make you mess up."
"Don't think about hitting a home run or anything like that."
