At Forrest Moore Park on Monday, young athletes interested in improving their baseball and softball skills reported for the opening of the Van Alstyne summer camp season.
On the baseball diamond, coaches Jimmy Haynes and Darrell Hardcastle started the group off with throwing instruction. The four day camp will eventually cover all phases of baseball, including hitting, running and fielding.
At the adjacent softball field, newly-hired softball coach Jason Brogdon sent his charges through many of those same drills. Brogdon, who came to Van Alstyne from Howe high school, was assisted by former Lady Panthers standouts Bailey and Hunter Offill.
