COACHES CLINIC AT CITI FIELD

My son wanted to play baseball this year so I signed him up for The Mites league and he loved it.


I was never a baseball player myself but since I know more than 5-6 year olds I qualified to be a coach. It was a heck of a lot of fun and we can't wait until spring season.


YBNR (Youth Baseball of New Rochelle) and The New York Mets offer a coaches clinic for Youth Baseball coaches in the area.



Infield coach Gary DiSarcina came to my side for the group photo. Lucky me!
