We welcome players from across Winnipeg to our Maples KidPro Baseball Clinic scheduled for May 22, 2010.

Kids will have the chance to mix it up with the Pros in this half-day clinic thats dedicated to developing pitching, throwing, fielding and batting skills. Our special guest clinicians - three Winnipeg Goldeyes - will be on hand to share secrets that only the pros know.

The event includes a barbeque and inflatable jumpers so there's something for the whole family.
