HOUSTON – Some famous Houston Astros are passing what they have learned to a new generation.

Dexter Fowler, George Springer and Jon Singleton were on hand for the start of the Astros Urban Youth Academy. The free summer camp lasts five weeks.

Players range in age from 7 to 17, and they learn a lot more than just baseball. The Astros also teach them leadership skills and help them with their college application process.
