Andrew McCutchen Hosts Annual Baseball Camp in Fort Meade

FORT MEADE, FL. — Pittsburgh Pirates National League MVP and local hero, Andrew McCutchen, returned to his roots in Polk County to host his annual baseball camp for the third straight year. On Saturday, February 1, 2014, Fort Meade opened its heart and baseball fields to a large group of young ball players, who all wanted to learn from Fort Meade’s favorite son, Andrew McCutchen.

Over 180 kids traveled from as far as New York for the opportunity to learn the game from their favorite player. Lined up in number #22 Pirates’ jerseys, kids participated in drills like hitting & defense, all trying to emulate their local hero. McCutchen made sure every child that enjoyed the camp didn’t leave without a smile & an autograph.

“I’ve created a lot of history here, & it’s always great to comeback & pay my respects.  “Anytime I am in Florida now, & people acknowledge me & say my name, ‘Hey, Andrew McCutchen!’  I guess I am still a little naive to it.”

Watch the following video of the brilliant young star who could be the best player in baseball.
