Double Duty Classic Clinic
Tuesday, June 29, 2011
Yesterday, the participants of today’s fourth annual Double Duty Classic hosted a clinic for 60 kids in the White Sox Inner City Youth Baseball program at UIC.
They worked on a variety of skills such as throwing mechanics and progression, hitting and base running.
As one of the coaches said, “When you teach others, you learn about yourself.” That’s the most important thing we hope this year’s participants take away from this experience.
The Double Duty Classic commemorates the 78th anniversary of the first East-West All-Star Game by celebrating the history of Negro League baseball in Chicago and promoting the next generation of inner-city baseball players.
