Turn 2 Baseball Clinics
About the Program
From Tuesday, July 9, through Friday, July 12, the Turn 2 Foundation, INC. founded by New York Yankee Derek Jeter, will host the fourteenth annual New York City Baseball Clinics at Al Oerter Recreation Center Outdoor Field from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. each day.
This four-day clinic is FREE for boys and girls ages 8 to 13. The clinic will focus on baseball fundamentals, as well as important life skills and lessons, which are acquired from Derek Jeter's book, The Life You Imagine.
Throughout the clinic, participants are led through multiple baseball skill stations by a group of experienced local coaches. Stations will focus on teaching and reinforcing the fundamentals of hitting, fielding, throwing, pitching and base running, as well as highlighting Derek's 10 Life Lessons.
A highlight of the clinic is a visit from a special guest speaker who will share their professional and personal experiences with the children. To conclude the event and reward the youngsters' hard work, the Turn 2 Foundation will host a closing award ceremony and banquet. Children will receive a T-shirt on the first day and lunch will be served daily.
