Kids Ages 7-13 Can Learn Baseball Fundamentals from Former Cardinals Players & Coaches
Outfielder Harrison Bader Scheduled to Appear at All Seven Local Clinic Locations
ST. LOUIS, Mo., April 18, 2019– Registration is now open for the 15th annual St. Louis Cardinals Alumni Kids Clinics presented by Nike and Sports Water.
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, over 1,000 kids participated in the clinics.
The 2019 Kids Clinics begins Tuesday, June 4, in Highland, Illinois, and includes seven local dates around St. Louis and five out-of-town clinic visits (Cape Girardeau & Columbia, Missouri and Springfield, Effingham & Quincy Ill.).
At each half-day clinic, 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. Additionally, Cardinals outfielder Harrison Bader will make an appearance at each of the seven local clinics.
Each participant will receive a goodie bag complete with Cardinals t-shirt, cap and two tickets to a 2019 game, as well as baseball cards for an autograph session with the alumni instructors, and prize drawings for great Cardinals items.
Registration is $99 per child for local clinics and $95 for out-of-town clinics. 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:
