For you parents who have a little baseball player or softball player, you have a chance to send your kid to camp under the guidance of a former big leaguer.

Former Major League All-Star Brian Jordan is spending a weekend in Morristown to teach youngsters the game. 

"I never had that opportunity as a young kid to go to camp with Major League Baseball players where they're teaching, motivating and inspiring me to dream big," said Jordan.

Jordan's camp will run Saturday June 22nd and Sunday June 23rd at Frank Lorino Park.

"On [June 22nd] it's more instruction teaching kids the fundamentals of the game. [June 23rd] they'll have a chance to perform in actual games," said Jordan.

Jordan spent 15 years in the majors so you know he knows the game. Thursday night is the Major League Baseball draft. There are three local pitchers hoping to hear their names called in the first or second round.

Farragut's Kyle Serrano, Heritage's Trevor Clifton, and Pigeon Forge standout Wil Crowe. Crowe was MVP of the Tigers state championship team. All three of these have committed to play college baseball. Clifton with Kentucky, Crowe with South Carolina and Serrano at Tennessee, under his father head coach Dave Serrano.

Jordan offered a word of advice for the major league prospects.

"I would tell every kid if it's not enough money to pay for college and you enjoy your life, go to college, get that experience. For me college is the minor leagues. If you continue to excel then your draft status is going to stay the same or get even better."
