A baseball camp opened in Hamburg Monday.

Kids from Buffalo's west side headed to the Southtowns to learn the national pastime.

Many of them have never swung a bat or even caught a pop fly.

For the next few days, kids will be picked up from West Side Community Services and taken to Legion Field in Hamburg.

They will fuel up with a free breakfast from a local restaurant, then put on their free gloves and hit the field.

After camp ends each morning, they'll get a free lunch then head back to the city.

The camp is free for them, as all costs have been covered by donations.
