Kids Ages 7-13 Can Learn Baseball Fundamentals from Former Cardinals Players & Coaches
ST. LOUIS, Mo., April 25, 2017 – Registration is now open for the 13th annual St. Louis Cardinals Alumni Kids Clinics presented by Academy Sports + Outdoors.
Each year, Cardinals Alumni Kids Clinics provide 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 2017 Kids Clinics schedule begins Wednesday, June 7, in Highland, Illinois, and includes 14 dates around St. Louis. For the third 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. Every instructor at the Kids Clinics is a former Cardinals player or coach. All participants receive a Kids Clinics goodie bag complete with Cardinals t-shirt, cap and two tickets to a 2017 game, as well as baseball cards for an autograph session with the alumni instructors, and prize drawings for great Cardinals items.
Registration is $85 per child. To register for a Cardinals Alumni Kids Clinic, or for a list of instructors and more information, visit cardinals.com/clinics. The full schedule follows:
