It was an exciting day and we are very appreciative of Claudia Gomez for taking the time to visit our academy.

Baseball/Softball Clinic was a good time had by all!

Baseball may be drawing to a close in the Major Leagues, but at the Urban Youth Academy, it’s the time to start teaching the youth the great game of baseball. 

This past Saturday, we had our Baseball/Softball clinic at the Academy for kids ages 7-15.  With over sixty kids on hand for professional instruction, we can confidently call the day a success. 

To change up the blog a little, I’ve posted a flickr slideshow with some pictures to show off the day.  I hope everyone had a great time and can’t wait for more baseball!

2008 RBI World Series - Day 4 - Dave Winfield 1When was the last time you met a Major League Baseball Hall of Famer?
Well pardner, that’s just too long.  Today, while the young men of the
2008 RBI World Series competed for the chance to play in the
championship game at Angel Stadium, Hall-of-Famer Dave Winfield visited
the Urban Youth Academy.  He met with players to offer words of advice
and encouragement.  The chance for these young men to meet such an
influential figure has the potential to pay huge dividends as they get
the opportunity to learn from one of game’s best.   Enjoy the
