Jr. Dodgers Training Days

You can stand in the same place as Andre Ethier, Manny Ramirez and Matt Kemp. Their coaches can even coach you.

 

The 2010 Jr. Dodgers Training Days were such a success, that thoughts are already on 2011. The first one-day clinic was held at Dodger Stadium on July 9, with instruction by Dodger coaches. The Aug. 19 and 20 clinics are sold out. To be notified of future Training Days, fill out the form at dodgers.com/jrdodgers.

 

What can you expect if you go to Jr. Dodger Training Days?

 

Kids at the July 9 training day were taught by Dodger coaches, including Larry Bowa, Mariano Duncan and Bob Schaefer, as well as former Dodgers “Sweet” Lou Johnson, Derrel Thomas and Wes Parker.

 

You’re in the bullpen throwing pitches, on the outfield grass playing a game with fellow Jr. Dodgers and learning the fundamentals of baseball. And you aren’t the only one getting fun out of it.

 

“The kids really enjoy themselves,” said Mariano. “It’s something I’m very glad I do. Every time you do something for the kids it’s always something good.”

 

The waiting list is forming. Don’t miss out.
