WHY: Jeremy Flug founded Baseball Fantasy Camp for Kids in 2008. After attending a Colorado Rockies Fantasy Camp for adults several years before, he decided to provide the same opportunity for young baseball fans with special needs. With the cooperation of Major League Baseball, and several participating teams, more than 750 kids and their families have been impacted in a very positive way.

Today, Baseball Fantasy Camp for Kids is proud to offer a wide array of baseball activities to special needs youth ranging from six-to-17 years old. Campers will gain the confidence to get out there and take a crack at the ball through practicing hitting, fielding, catching fly balls, and more during personal instruction with the pros.
