BOSTON (CBS) – The annual CVS Caremark All Kids Can Baseball Camp kicked off at Fenway Park on Wednesday.

The camp gives disabled children from the Little League’s Challenger Leagues a chance to take batting practice with Red Sox hitting coach Dave Magadan.

Participants are disabled kids who might not otherwise get a chance to play on regular Little League teams.

On Wednesday, players from Braintree’s Challenger League took the field.

Their VIP experience for the kids included hitting tips from Magadan; the chance to take swings from home plate; a team photo in front of the Green Monster; lunch in the Red Sox dugout; a visit from Wally the Green Monster; a VIP tour of the ballpark; and tickets to tonight’s game.

The camp was one of nine scheduled at Fenway Park this season. The camps are part of CVS Caremark’s national philanthropic All Kids Can program, which focuses on helping children with disabilities learn, play and succeed in life.
