Kids Ages 7-13 Can Learn Baseball Fundamentals At Clinics Taught By Former Cardinals Players & Coaches
ST. LOUIS, Mo., April 26, 2016 – Registration is now open for the 12th annual St. Louis Cardinals Kids Clinics presented by Academy Sports + Outdoors.
Each year, Cardinals Kids Clinics provide all kids ages 7-13 with an opportunity to learn baseball fundamentals from former Cardinals players and coaches at a variety of locations throughout the greater St. Louis community. Last year, nearly 1,500 kids participated in the clinics.
The 2016 Kids Clinics schedule begins Wednesday, June 8, in Fairview Heights, Illinois, and includes 14 dates around St. Louis. For the second consecutive year, the Cardinals will host a clinic in Cape Girardeau, Missouri.
At each half-day clinic, several Cardinals alumni provide small group instruction on pitching, hitting, base-running and other baseball fundamentals. All participants receive a Kids Clinics goodie bag complete with Cardinals t-shirt, cap and two tickets to a 2016 game, as well as baseball cards for a special autograph session with the alumni instructors and entry into prize drawings for great Cardinals items.
