The spring and summer of 2019 will be the 59th season the Minnesota Twins, Twins Community Fund and Play Ball! Minnesota, in partnership with Great River Energy, will offer free youth baseball and softball clinics.
Created in 1961 by longtime Twins scout Angelo Giuliani, the clinic program serves as a way for Play Ball! Minnesota to promote baseball and softball to boys and girls throughout the Upper Midwest. The Play Ball! Minnesota Youth Clinics are available to participants and communities free of charge. The program is presented in partnership with Great River Energy.
The Play Ball! Minnesota Youth Clinics are designed to teach basic fundamentals, including hitting, throwing, and defense in a fun and encouraging atmosphere. The clinics provide quality instruction for boys and girls ages 6-13. Typically, clinics are divided into two 90-minute groups.
The Twins Community Fund provides all of the necessary equipment for the clinic. Participants are asked to bring their own gloves.
