On Monday, July 21, Cochenour and around 375 boys and girls, from first grade through eighth, attended the camp at Lafayette High School, near St. Louis. The kids were divided in teams and Carpenter, third baseman for the St. Louis Cardinals, spent time with each team and with the overall group teaching them baseball tips. Each camper received a t-shirt, team picture with Carpenter and his autograph, and the opportunity to learn from one of the best baseball players in the MLB.
