Kids dreaming of a big league career got tips from one of the best in the game.

On Wednesday, San Francisco Giants catcher Buster Posey held his first baseball camp at Saint Ignatius College Preparatory School.

The MVP gave kids tips on fielding, throwing, and hitting home runs. His advice was to enjoy playing ball, but don't make it the focus of your life.

"I think it's really important to play different sports," Posey said. "I think it's important to take a lot of pride in being a good student. That will pay off in the long run, regardless of whether you make it professionally or not."

Posey says he attended a few baseball camps as a kid, but never got a visit from a professional baseball player.

He says he learned valuable skills at the camp, but mostly just learned to have fun.
