Former Great Falls Baseball Standout to Hold Youth Camps

Posted: Updated:

A former Great Falls baseball standout is back in the Electric City and will hold a couple of camps this weekend for area kids. 

C.M. Russell alum and former Great Falls Stallion Justin Meccage, who is currently a pitching coach in the Pittsburgh Pirates organization, stopped by KFBB on Wednesday. He and his family spend the holidays in the Electric City every other year, and he holds camps for kids ages 6 to 12 and 13 to 18. This year, he will be joined by another former Great Falls baseball standout, Tyler Graham. Meccage says it's great to come home and be able to share some of his knowledge with the next generation of Great Falls baseball talent. 

"It's kind of a jump start for the 2016 season for kids in Great Falls and get them fired up for the upcoming season. It's nice to be able to come back and share some information with the younger kids and we have a new addition to the camp this year, Tyler Graham, and we're excited about that and this baseball thing in the winter is kind of crazy, but we're excited about it," Meccage says.

The camps will focus on fundamentals. The younger kids can attend from 8:30 till noon on Saturday, Then the High School kids, the same time on Sunday. It will be at the old Big R building. It costs 55 dollars, but register beforehand and it's 50 bucks. Head to 'Meccage Baseball Academy' on Facebook or email Justin at justin.meccage@pirates.com for more information.
