Kids can get baseball instruction from some of the best collegiate players in the country.
The Georgia State baseball program will honor next Monday’s Martin Luther King holiday by giving back to the community with its annual youth clinic. The GSU players look forward to kids coming out to have fun and hone their skills.
The GSU players and coaching staff will conduct a free youth baseball clinic at McKoy Park in Decatur. All youth baseball players in the eighth grade and younger are invited to attend, and no advance registration is necessary.
The clinic will take place on Monday, Jan. 21 from 11 a.m. – 1 p.m. Holding this event for the third straight year, the Panthers will work with these young players on the basics of hitting, pitching, fielding and base running.
McKoy Park is located at 534 McKoy Street, Decatur, Ga., 30030.

“Everyone in the Georgia State baseball organization looks forward to opportunities like this to give back to the community and share the game of baseball with the next generation,” GSU head coach Greg Frady said.
The start of the 2014 baseball season is just one month away as the Panthers open by hosting the Atlanta Challenge, featuring Fordham, Liberty and St. John’s, Feb. 13-15 at the GSU Baseball Complex.
