A special visitor this weekend to a place where kids are learning a lot about baseball and about life.
This is the inaugural season for the Abdoney Hitting Facility at Palma Ceia little league in south Tampa, where kids can work on their swings rain or shine.
The special visitor was Rays outfielder Matt Joyce, who put on the Palma Ceia jersey.
Matt told the kids that little league is about more than just baseball.
Joyce grew up here. He played little league at North Brandon, then went on to Armwood High and Florida Southern.
