Mets pitcher deGrom teaches campers baseball skills

Mets pitcher Jacob deGrom taught campers tricks of the trade Thursday in Merrick.



At the Coleman Country Day Camp, deGrom showed kids how he grips the ball when he's on the mound. He spoke with campers about their baseball goals and answered any questions regarding the sport.



DeGrom has 10 wins this season and made his first trip to the All-Star Game.



The camp says that each year a professional athlete comes to see the kids and that deGrom was chosen because he sets a great example for the kids.
