Minnesota Twins Host Youth Baseball Clinic [VIDEO]

 

FOLEY — Youth baseball fans gathered at Foley High School to participate in a free baseball clinic put on by the Minnesota Twins.

Kids in attendance had a chance to work on their skills, while getting advice from professional baseball coaches.

Ken Mauer is with the Minnesota Twins Organization. He says the goal isn’t to try to make the kids professional ball players.

“We just like to be able to teach them the skills that they can use to go play in high school, maybe college,” says Mauer.

The clinic offers two 90-minute sessions for kids ages 6-16. While focusing on three main categories.

“We try to concentrate on hitting, fielding and pitching,” says Mauer. “But in that we try to mix up a few other things as well.”

The Minnesota Twins will host another clinic in St. Cloud tomorrow (Saturday) at Whitney Park. The first one begins at 9:00 a.m. for ages 6 to 9-year-olds and another at 10:30 a.m for 10 to 16-year-olds.

Mauer says he looks forward to coaching the kids that attend the clinics.

“I love it, and it’s our privilege to come up and show the kids the appreciation for the way they back the Minnesota Twins,” says Mauer.

There is no registration for tomorrow’s clinic.

Children are asked to bring their own baseball glove.
