Registration Now Open For 11th Annual Cardinals Kids Clinics

Kids ages 7 -13 can learn baseball fundamentals at clinics taught by former Cardinals players and coaches 

ST. LOUIS, April 22, 2015 – Registration is now open for the 11th annual St. Louis Cardinals Kids Clinics presented by Academy Sports + Outdoors.

                Each year, the 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.

“The Cardinals are fortunate to have more than 70 former players and coaches who call St. Louis home,” said Martin Coco, Director of Ticket Sales and Marketing. “That gives us a great pool of players to utilize for the Kids Clinics and a lot of names that both kids and parents will be excited about.”

The 2015 Kids Clinics schedule begins Wednesday, June 10 in Fairview Heights, Illinois, and includes 14 dates around St. Louis. New this 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 2015 game, as well as baseball cards for a special autograph session with the alumni instructors, and entry into prize drawings for great Cardinals items.

Last year, more than 1,100 kids participated in the clinics.
