The Valley Blue Sox will host a free pre-game clinic for players age 8-12 at Mackenzie Stadium in Holyoke, Massachusetts on Sunday, June 25. Players attending the clinic can take a spin on the Fruits & Veggies (FNV) Prize Wheel.
Clinic attendees will learn the basics of fielding, throwing, and hitting from Blue Sox coaches and players prior to Sunday night’s 5:05 p.m. game against the Mystic Schooners.
The Transforming Communities Initiative will pitch spins on the (FNV) Prize Wheel, while offering healthy snacks to the players. Mercy Medical Center and Live Well Springfield have partnered for the Transforming Communities Initiative to improve health by making healthier choices more accessible for all Springfield residents.
“This collaboration provides an opportunity to promote healthy eating and active living while we work to increase access to healthy options for all Springfield residents,” said Doreen Fadus, vice president of Mission Integration and Community Health and Well Being, Mercy Medical Center.
