Matt Joyce Sweet Swingin' Baseball Camp set for Jan. 26

The fourth annual Matt Joyce Sweet Swingin' Baseball Camp will be held from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Jan. 26 at North Brandon Little League, 2915 Kingsway Ave.

This camp has a coaching staff led by Tampa Bay Rays outfielder Matt Joyce, a Seffner native who played at the North Brandon Little League as a youth.

In addition, coaches and other pro baseball players will be joining the camp. The coaching staff will emphasize fundamentals, form and technique. Campers will also receive motivational tips on life skills and team play.

Campers will be grouped by age, size, ability and similar talent. All proceeds will go to benefit the North Brandon Youth Baseball organization for park and field improvements as well as the purchase of new equipment.

In addition to specialized coaching, campers will receive a Matt Joyce Sweet Swingin' Baseball Camp T-shirt and lunch.

All participants and their families will have the opportunity to purchase raffle tickets for several autographed baseball items as well as other memorabilia.

The camp is open to age 5 through 12 as of May 1, 2014. The event is limited to the first 100 paid registrants.

  1. Pain does not exist in the Karate 3 soundtrack ... does it?!?


    Should the Karate Kid series have stopped at the original? Probably, but if we didn't have Karate Kid 3 would will still have the lost song Listen To Her Heart by the Little River Band?

  2. Bar review: The Landing at Jannus in St. Petersburg

    Bars & Spirits

    I've spent many evenings in St. Pete's Jannus Live courtyard, enjoying one of the best open-air venues in the Tampa Bay area. It's where I saw my first concert in Florida: Toadies, on the Rubberneck tour sometime in the mid '90s.

    The drinks at the Landing at Jannus in St. Petersburg are about as cheap as you’ll find at any other regular downtown bar, a nice surprise.
  3. Local craft beer of the week: Two Henrys Belleview-Biltmore Blueberry Vanilla Wheat

    Bars & Spirits

    Two Henrys Brewing Company is a unique entity in the Tampa Bay brewing scene, due to both its status as the only brewery in Plant City, as well as its location on a 27-acre working farm, which also includes a winery.
