Weston’s Play Ball For All will host its next free youth fun and fundamentals baseball clinic on Saturday, June 16, at Morehouse Field in Weston.
The clinic will host more than 40 young program participants, ages 8-13, from the Child Guidance Center of Mid-Fairfield County, based in Norwalk. This three-hour clinic will be followed by a picnic for the group.
The Play Ball For All mission is to bring the game of baseball to underserved youth from surrounding communities. The clinics are run by local volunteer coaches and are assisted by local Little League alumni players who act as peer mentors.The goal is to spur organic growth of local community baseball and promote volunteerism at early stages through mentor and leadership opportunities for our local athletes.
“For many of these kids this is their first experience with baseball and we want to have our local coaches and youth mentors engage the group with a positive and fun afternoon of baseball and bonding,” said Play Ball For All founder Bob Barasch.
