On Jan. 19, Atlanta Braves relief pitcher Peter Moylan will team up with Everett Sports Marketing to host a baseball camp fundraiser at 5-Tools Sports Training Center in Douglasville.

Houston Astros minor league outfielder Telvin Nash, a Griffin native, will be a part of the camp as well.

The indoor training facility will be open to 40 players, ages 6 to 15, for this five-hour afternoon camp.

The event cost is $75 and will include personal instruction and autographs from both Moylan and Nash.

“This will be our first time in the area with Moylan. The owner [of 5-Tools], David Collings, thought it would be an exciting event,” said Rachel Rudolf, event director for Everett Sports Marketing.

Part of the proceeds will go to provide spots in Everett camps to underprivileged children, she said.

Rudolf said Collings heard of some previous camps featuring Braves players and was interested in hosting one at his facility.

Moylan and Everett hosted their first baseball camp together Oct. 20 in Roswell. The camp had 60 participants and Rudolf said it went very well.

“The camp sold out. We had a great turnout,” Rudolf said.

During the Jan. 19 camp Rudolf said every camper will get lots of one-on-one time with Moylan and Nash. Participants will have the opportunity to be trained in any position as well as in batting mechanics, pitching and agility.

While this event is a sporting camp — as are all those Everett is a part of — there will also be a focus on character.

Along with honing their baseball skills and leadership abilities, Rudolf said the participants will have fun as Australia native Moylan has shown he has a sense of humor.

To register for the camp, visit the website at www.everettsm.com or call (864) 350-1222. Space is limited.The time for the camp will be determined and announced during the week of the camp. The 5-Tools Sports Training Center is at 1292 John Belt Drive in Douglasville.
