It was hot this past Wednesday.
But a little warm weather wasn't going to stop a bunch of high school baseball players from working toward their goals.
At Cuero high school Wednesday, more than 30 high school baseball players had a chance to show off their fielding, hitting and pitching skills in front of college coaches and professional scouts.
Jason Gonzales, a native of Cuero and currently the coach for Texas A&M Kingsville, put on the camp for incoming freshman all the way up to seniors who have already graduated high school.
Players had their individual skills tested one by one before playing a simulated, controlled intrasquad scrimmage. Pitchers had their arms graded on a radar gun, while position players were tested on their fielding abilities at their specific position.
