2018 Baseball Skills Clinic
The Oneida County Youth Bureau just completed their 3rd year of offering a FREE Baseball Skills Clinic on Friday July 6th held at historic Donovan Stadium in Utica. The weather was perfect for the youth of Oneida County to participate and attend this FREE one day event. The Skills Clinic, presented by the Utica Blue Sox players and coaching staff, entertained 70 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 the Utica Blue Sox organization 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 coaching staff for their “first class” approach to giving back to our community. Every Utica Blue Sox representative in attendance 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 did not disappoint at this event! Great job to George Deak (Owner) of the Utica Blue Sox for bringing in such a wonderful group of young men to Oneida County!
Oneida County youth were represented from the following cities, towns, villages or municipalities: Utica, Rome, Whitesboro, NY Mills, Yorkville, New Hartford, Sauquoit, Clinton, Oriskany, Marcy, Deerfield, Chadwicks, and Holland Patent respectively.
