the Mississippi Dream weekend

January 19-21, 2019

Kicking off its inaugural weekend in 2019, the Dream Weekend will provide hundreds of kids ages 6 through 18 with the opportunity to spend time with professional athlete mentors, participate in inspiring conversations and educational opportunities, and have fun while learning the fundamentals of baseball skills development. 

The hosts of this life-changing program are diverse current and former MLB players with strong ties to Mississippi, many of whom have overcome the odds to become professional athletes. 

Camp participants will learn how each player overcame adversity to accomplish their goals, and have opportunities to share their own hopes and dreams – all while enjoying the great game of baseball!
