CVS Caremark, Red Sox host baseball camp
More than 20 athletes from the Boys & Girls Clubs of Lee County experienced what it is like to be a major league ball player during the recent CVS Caremark Baseball Camp.
The athletes worked one-on-one in the batting cage with Boston Red Sox hitting coach Greg Colbrunn, took on-field batting practice, enjoyed lunch with Red Sox mascot Wally the Green Monster, had a team photo taken in front of the "Green Monster" and received T-shirts and Red Sox baseball caps, as well as a backpack filled with "game day essential."
