The free instructional baseball clinic will be held Thursday, March 23, from 6 to 9 p.m. at the Okeechobee County Sports Complex. This clinic is open to all boys and girls ages 6-14.

Participants should wear athletic apparel and tennis shoes and bring their own glove. Registration is required and the clinic is limited to the first 200 children.

Family members are strongly encouraged to attend the entire clinic and support their child.
