TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

It might have been one of the finest collections of baseball talent that a youth camp here in Southern Arizona has ever seen.

Major Leaguer Shelley Duncan's 4th Tucson Youth Baseball Association Baseball Experience brought in its largest number of current and marquee Major League Baseball players.

Both the Hairston brothers, Scott and Jerry, joined other big leaguers Cory Burns, Jon Rauch, Ian Kinsler and J.J. Hardy for a half a day of baseball instruction but importantly fun for young players 6-to-16 years old on what was an absolutely gorgeous day in Southern Arizona.

The event featured many past and present big league players and coaches including Matt Paganozzi, Chris Duncan, George Arias, Jordan Brown, Brandon Dixon, Hall of Famers Rollie Fingers and Fergie Jenkins and more.
