Youth Baseball and Softball Clinics
The spring and summer of 2020 will be the 60th 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.
Any community in the Upper Midwest is eligible to host a clinic through an application process. Clinics are great to engage the youth ball players in your community! Play Ball! Minnesota Youth Clinics provide fundamental instruction for boys and girls ages 6-13 in a fun and positive atmosphere.
Clinics are typically divided into two 90-minute sessions (6-9 year olds and then 10-13 year olds), and they are typically scheduled on Friday afternoons and Saturday mornings during the months of April through August. Timing and dates are flexible and our staff will work with your community to make the clinic the best experience for your youth.
Play Ball! Minnesota provide safe, youth-friendly, equipment. Youth participants are asked to bring their gloves. The application to host a 2020 clinic has closed. The 2020 youth clinic schedule will be available shortly, please check back.
