RBI World Series Day 2 – Workout Day

No games were played today as the young men from around the country all descended on the Urban Youth Academy for a half day of workouts.  Coaches from the Urban Youth Academy worked out the young men with a multitude of drills to help strengthen their abilities and showcase their skills in front of many Major League Baseball team scouts and the MLB Scouting Bureau.

 As important as workout is for development of these young men, at the Urban Youth Academy the ability to have fun and enjoy the great game of baseball is just as important.  Take the young men from Santa Domingo, Dominican Republic.  Smiles never left their face and the joy of the game was evident by all those they came in contact with.
