Major League Baseball’s regular season begins exactly one week from today. With America’s favorite past time beginning and the snow storms in the Northeast appearing to be over, kids in the region can turn their video games off, shed their winter coats and get active outside too.
What better way for kids in the Greater Boston-area to jump start their spring than by spending the day with Boston Red Sox left fielder and World Series Champion Jonny Gomes? Gomes will host his youth baseball clinic on Saturday, April 5 at Edge Sports Center in Bedford, Massachusetts from 9:30 AM to 12 PM.
The Game 4 hero in the 2013 World Series, Gomes hit a 387 foot, three run home run in the sixth inning to help the Red Sox take a 4-1 lead.
Now a World Series Champion, Gomes will host his camp the day after Opening Day when the Sox play the Milwaukee Brewers—the same night he and his teammates receive their World Series championship rings. Gomes can’t wait to share that synergy with his campers. “I’m excited to show my campers my 2013 World Series ring the day after I get it,” Gomes told The Source.
The clinic is open for both boys and girls in grades 1-8. Campers will play games, get instruction from Gomes and from the top coaches in the area on fielding drills, pitching techniques and the right ways to stretch before games. Campers who participate will receive a limited-edition clinic t-shirt, a team photo with Jonny and an autograph.
Gomes is optimistic: “I look forward to having fun with the kids,” he said.
