Young Surrey and White Rock baseball players will have an opportunity to learn from the best next week, as the Major League Baseball Players Alumni Association is set to host a Legends for Youth baseball clinic in South Surrey.
At South Surrey Athletic Park (14600 20 Ave.) on Monday (July 16) from 5-7 p.m., three former major-leaguers – Shawn Chacon, James Lofton and Brian McRae – will lead youngsters through a series of exercises and drills. Approximately 200 youth players are expected to take part, according to a MLBPAA release issued Friday.
The clinic will be held at SSAP’s fields #1 and #2.
The alumni players will teach all aspects of the game, from pitching and catching to baserunning. Life skills, too, will be a focus of the event. The two-hour event will conclude with an autograph session and baseball giveaways.
