A huge thank you to the Major League Baseball Players Alumni Association for partnering with Gresham Barlow Youth Baseball / Softball to put on a coaching clinic like this, giving back to our community of volunteer coaches and parents. 

The USA Baseball coaches clinic is open to the public, however we ask that only adults attend so that our trainers are able to focus on providing instruction and training to local coaches and parents interested in strengthening their game. You do not need to be a coach to attend this clinic and we believe that both baseball and softball coaches will benefit from this training. 

Parents can also learn from this session! Who knows, you may be inspired to pickup a glove next year and help out the team!
