A special guest made an appearance at a Somers camp earlier this week to talk to aspiring young baseball players.
Yankee relief pitcher David Robertson visited Summer Trails Baseball Camp.
"Having a professional player come is not only the highlight of the season, it can be the highlight of a kid’s life – to meet someone you’ve idolized, someone who’s worked so hard to achieve success in a sport you respect," said Jamie Sirkin, director of the Summer Trails Day Camp.
Sirkin said she enjoys seeing the children be so passionate and focused on something they love.
"Baseball camp is about more than having a visit from a professional player," Sirkin told Patch in an email. "It’s really about the culture of baseball. Eating, sleeping, loving, breathing baseball."
Thanks to Jamie Sirkin for submitting to Patch the photos of David Robertson.
