Baseball clinic coming up January 10 in Camarillo

January 01, 2010

Join some of pro baseball’s top players and “Hit a Homerun for Hope” at the 1st annual Camarillo Pony Baseball Clinic to benefit Lazarex Cancer Foundation on Sunday, January 10th.  

The clinic will be held from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. at the Camarillo Pony Baseball Field at 1030 Temple Avenue in Camarillo.   Children ages 7 to 14 are eligible to register.  Registration is $40 per player and is tax deductible with all proceeds benefiting Lazarex Cancer Foundation.  Parents wishing to enroll their children can pre-register online or at 9:00 a.m. the day of the event.  The event, hosted by the CPBA and former New York Mets player, Roger Frash, (now a baseball coach at Oxnard College) will honor Bonnie Young (mother of Major League Baseball stars Dmitri and Delmon Young) who passed away earlier this year from pancreatic cancer.

In addition to meeting brothers Dmitri Young of the Washington Nationals and Delmon Young of the Minnesota Twins, young players will have a chance to hone their skills and learn first hand from some of Major League Baseball’s finest athletes and coaches including: Cincinnati Reds hitting coach Brook Jacoby, former Dodger and current Future Stars of America owner Brent Cookson, and former Florida Marlins pitcher Kip Yaughn, representing Lazarex Cancer Foundation, along with Minor Leaguers Brad Boyer of the San Francisco Giants and Eric Komatsu of the Milwaukee Brewers.  The clinic will cover: infield/outfield techniques and fielding, base running and speed drills, pitching mechanics, and discussions on hitting philosophy.  Oxnard College coaching staff and players will be on hand to provide additional instruction. 

Earlier this year, Bonnie Young lost her battle with pancreatic cancer but her husband, Larry, and sons Dmitri and Delmon, are honoring her memory by continuing to raise awareness and funds to fight this tragic disease by reaching out to the community.
