Former Cardinals, Royals pitcher hosts pitching camp in Jackson, MO

JACKSON, MO (KFVS) - A former Major League Baseball pitcher was in Jackson, Missouri.

Former Cardinals and Royals pitcher Mark Littell, a Gideon High School graduate, put on a pitching and throwing camp on Friday, June 2 at Jackson Stadium.

Kids 13 and older learned how to properly pitch and throw a baseball under his watchful eye.

"When you throw a need to throw it properly," he said. "That's basically, kind of, well, it's not really taught. And that's what I'm trying to do today, is teach them how to use the hand and the arm and let it work as one unit."
