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.

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.
