GARDEN CITY, N.Y. (CBS New York) – From Harlem to Long Island, the extreme heat has counselors at a kids sports camp taking precautions.

Fifty young baseball players took many water breaks on the sweltering final day of a two-week baseball camp.

“Somebody could pass out. It’s really important to drink water,” Matteo Ingrassia, a boy participating in the camp, told CBS2’s Dave Carlin.

With the extremely hot conditions on the field, supervision was extra important.

The kids took breaks in the shade of a fence, watched over by their coach and former New York Yankee world champion Dom Scala.

Scala founded the camp, and he repeatedly reminded the kids to speak up about how they’re feeling.

“Make sure that you drink enough water, all the time. If you have a problem, all you’ve got to do is ask a coach,” Scala told the kids.

“Absolutely had full faith in the counselors here that they would hydrate them as necessary, yes,” said mother Catherine Fuschillo.

Her 5-year-old son, Charlie Fuschello, is the youngest at the Garden City camp.

“Is it hot out here?” Carlin asked Charlie.

“Very hot,” he said.

“What do you do to keep cool?”

“Drink water,” Charlie said.

Scala says he and his staff watch kids for signs they need to be pulled from the field.

“Somebody, you know, starts taking their hat off, and they’ve got their head is down, or something like that. Or they are drinking, maybe, excess water. Sometimes that’s no good either,” he said. “We always think about safety first. Very, very important for us.”
