College Park, MD—
The old saying that giving back to someone has a gift of karma built in, well today for Wilson Ramos of the Washington Nationals got his gift that later paid off, by giving a few hours of his time to children at a youth baseball camp in College Park. The Wilson Ramos Parent and Child Baseball Experience may have helped Ramos hit the game winning double in front of 41,000 fans at Nats Park.
Ramos, who has been known to be extremely kid friendly at Nats Park and off the field, today showed how much he wants the youth of today to turn into the big leaguers of tomorrow. He spent a little over two hours on all aspects of the game and really got into the basics of catching with several of the campers during that time.
“I am very happy to take part in this camp. I really enjoy kids who aspire to make it to the big leagues,” said Ramos. Andrew and his group have a great event here. These kids are so excited to see me. They can’t wait to see me, so much I can barely get out of my car. It makes me happy to see how much Nationals fans want to greet me and learn how I made it to the Big Leagues.”
“Celebrity Sports Camps has a great relationship with Ramos and we know that he will give the kids more than face on the sidelines and someone to hand out prizes at the end. Wilson or “Will Son” as he is know at Nats park is one of the most “hands on “ players when it comes to instruction of youth baseball kids. He actually wants them to take something from his lessons to take their game to the next level, said, Celebrity Sports Camp Executive Director Andrew Lang.
Ramos, who has been playing baseball since the Age of 5 in his home Country of Venezuela, has always been a catcher and has a ton of baseball IQ and has developed into one of the premier players in baseball.
