ATLANTA (AP) - Zac Efron got some fastball pointers from an Atlanta Braves pitching coach while pitching his baseball-themed movie Charlie St. Cloud” in this city.

The teen heartthrob stopped by a youth baseball camp in Atlanta while promoting his new film Tuesday.

A smiling Efron sporting sunglasses and a leather glove played catch with young all-stars. He worked the crowd, signed autographs and also gleaned some tips about the sport from Braves pitching coach Roger McDowell.

In his new movie based on a novel, Efron plays a high school student whose love of baseball helps him cope after his younger brother dies in a car accident.

Efron’s new film opens July 30. Best known for the “High School Musical” series, Efron also starred in “17 Again” and “Hairspray.”
