2016 Baseball Skills Clinic
The Oneida County Youth Bureau completed their Inaugural Baseball Skills Clinic on Wednesday July 6th held at historic Murnane Field. The weather was perfect for the youth of Oneida County to participate and attend this FREE one day event. The Skills Clinic, presented by Accelerate Sports (J.T. LaFountain) and the Utica Blue Sox players and staff, entertained 115 Oneida County youth that took advantage of an amazingly well run, organized and structured baseball learning experience for the kids.
Kevin Green, Oneida County Youth Bureau Director said: “The collaboration effort from Accelerate Sports and the Utica Blue Sox was first class from start to finish.” Green added, “Our youth, both boys and girls represented from all across Oneida County were treated to such an enthusiastic foundation of baseball knowledge.”
Much credit goes to the Utica Blue Sox Players and Accelerate Sports staff for their “first class” approach to giving back to our community. Every player on the 2016 Blue Sox roster made an investment in to our kid’s future by giving of their time and volunteering their baseball knowledge to our children. Kids need heroes and the Blue Sox were super heroes to our kids at this event! Great job to George Deak (Owner) of the Utica Blue Sox and Director of Baseball Operations J.T. LaFountain from Accelerate Sports for bringing in such a wonderful group of young men to Oneida County!
