DeSales hosting baseball & softball clinics with the Summer Playground Program

Over 600 Allentown youth will participate in free baseball and softball clinics at DeSales University! The Department of Parks and Recreation, Friends of the Allentown Parks and DeSales University are proud to coordinate three baseball clinics for Allentown youth registered in the annual Summer Playground Program.

These clinics are made possible through a $4500 grant from the Iron Pigs Charities. Iron Pigs mascots, Ferrous and FeFe, will be in attendance during the clinics to provide a fun and exciting atmosphere for children from each of the 20 Summer Playground Program sites.

Head DeSales baseball coach Tim Neiman will administer the clinics, which will teach baseball and softball fundamentals including hitting, catching, throwing, base running and out fielding. The overall goal of the program is to introduce this great game to Allentown youth and to raise awareness of the many baseball and softball opportunities within the City.

The three (3) clinics will take place on August 2, 4 and 5 from 10:30 am – 2:30 pm at the DeSales University’s baseball fields.
